An unlikely star came out of last Sunday's Variety Show at the Bristol Hippodrome as a man proposed to his long-term girlfriend.

Ben Neads temporarily stole the spotlight when he went down on one knee, in the middle of TV comedy star Andy Ford's set. With hundreds of people watching, it was relief all round when Daisy said yes.

The couple from Portishead have been together for six years, but the proposal was being planned from November, when Ben contacted Andy Ford on Facebook.

And despite Ben's certainty that Daisy would say yes - he must have been feeling the extra pressure of the crowd.
