This Celeb Couple Are Engaged After The Most Complicated Relationship Ever

To say that Millie Mackintosh and Hugo Taylor have had a complicated relationship history is an understatement.

Former Made in Chelsea stars, Millie Mackintosh and Hugo Taylor, have confirmed that they are engaged, 14 months after her divorce from rapper Professor Green.

A spokesperson for Hugo confirmed the news to MailOnline, saying: "I can confirm that Hugo and Millie did get engaged whilst they were on holiday in Greece."

Rumours that Hugo had popped the question began swirling last week after Millie was photographed wearing what appeared to be an enormous diamond engagement ring, and when she shared an Instagram post saying she'd had "the best birthday ever" while on holiday.

While others were pretty shocked by the news.

And that's because Millie and Hugo have quite a complicated relationship history.

They dated on and off for six months in 2011, but split up after it was revealed that they'd both cheated on each other – and Hugo had done so with Millie's best friend and co-star, Rosie Fortescue.

At the time of the breakup, Millie said that she would have feelings for Hugo "for the rest of her life."

She said: "I loved him. Those feelings don't disappear. But I just always have to remind myself why we're not together. I do think that, for the rest of my life, every time I see him, I'll get that feeling in my stomach. I don't think I could ever not get that butterfly feeling."


However, they were plagued by split rumours throughout their marriage and just two and a half years after tying the knot, they announced that they were divorcing in February 2016.

In their statement they said the split was amicable: "It is a mututal decision. We still care deeply about each other and would like it to be known that it is on amicable terms and we wish each other well."

Five weeks after the split, Millie was pictured ~getting cosy~ with Hugo at a polo event, sparking rumours that they may be rekindling their romance.

And then in May 2016, just days after her divorce was finalised, Millie confirmed that she and Hugo were indeed back together with an Instagram post taken on his birthday.

And it seemed that any hope of relations between Millie and Professor Green remaining civil was off the cards, after he tweeted "Money really can't buy you class can it?" and that he had "dodged a bullet" after unflattering paparazzi photos of Millie were published.

Millie and Hugo moved in together earlier this year and now, 14 months after her divorce was finalised, are engaged.
