Rosana, a sales assistant at Boots, immediately said yes to cheers from the crowd at the Channel Islands Bodybuilding Championships in Jersey.

Jose, a Co-op worker, won the "first-time competitor" award and had arranged for Rosana to present the trophy and left the wedding ring with the show's compère, who slipped it into his hand at the vital moment.

Rzeszowski emotionless as manslaughter verdict read out

Damian Rzeszowski showed no emotion in the dock as the presiding judge, Sir Michael Birt, read out the verdicts that two jurats - similar to magistrates in the UK - had reached.

Throughout the trial, the defendant had constantly stared down at the floor, not looking up at any time.

No members of the victims' families were in court, but the public gallery was full of curious onlookers.

Judge Birt, who is the Bailiff of Jersey, said Rzeszowski would be sentenced on October 29.
