Ulrika to marry Mr Right



Ulrika Jonsson is set to marry her Mr Right - the eligible bachelor she met while presenting a television dating show last year, her agent confirmed.

Jonsson, who has suffered a string of high-profile failed relationships, started dating former Army officer Lance Gerrard-Wright after they hit if off during ITV1's love search Mr Right, in which he was the prize.

But Gerrard-Wright failed to find romance on the programme and soon became a familiar sight by Jonsson's side at celebrity events.

Her agent Melanie Cantor confirmed the pair were engaged after Gerrard-Wright popped the question last Thursday.

Jonsson told the News of the World the proposal, on the steps of St Paul's Cathedral in London, was "incredibly romantic" and she did not hesitate to say yes.

"He chose St Paul's because it's one of his favourite churches. We're so in love and I'm so, so happy," she said.

The couple, both 35, are visiting Gerrard-Wright's parents in Folkingham, Lincolnshire, to discuss wedding plans although a date has yet to be set.

It is believed news of the proposal emerged after an excited Jonsson broke her silence to a shopkeeper in the village and showed him her engagement ring.

The Swedish beauty's past boyfriends include soccer star Stan Collymore, who beat her up in a French bar, and England soccer boss Sven-Goran Eriksson.

She has two children - baby Bo, by former partner Markus Kempen, and eight-year-old Cameron, son of ex-husband cameraman John Turnbull.
