When did Vicky McClure get engaged?

Jonny proposed to partner Vicky on Christmas Day in 2017. Vicky spoke to the Nottingham Post about her very casual proposal and said: “He popped the question over a cup of tea – we moved onto the bubbles by 8.30am.” It transpires, he actually hid the ring where they keep the teabags!

When will Vicky McClure get married?

Her and Jonny have delayed getting married due to their busy schedules. The original plan was to get married in 2019 and then of course 2020 has been difficult due to the pandemic. Opening up to the Evening Standard last year, Vicky said: “It’s been chock-a-block [and] we don’t want to rush and feel like we are slotting it into a time period. We want time to plan – the amount of things you need to do is frightening.”
