The Suffolk singer Ed Sheeran announced his engagement to his long-term girlfriend at the weekend, confirming the news on his Instagram account.
In the post, he said that he'd popped the question at the end of 2017 and added that he was "very happy and in love."
Ed and Cherry both attended the Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham, where they were childhood friends.
The school's staff were among the well-wishers today - with Ed's former teachers said to be delighted.
In Suffolk today, speculation had already started as to whether the pair would marry in their home county.
One wedding venue, Grade-II listed Crows Hall in Debenham, said they would be 'honoured' to host such a high-profile celebrity wedding.
