Jade Thirlwall's ex boyfriend Jed Elliott has announced engaged to be married to his girlfriend Virginia Gardner.

The 30 year old, who is the bassist for famed rock bank The Struts, took his Instagram to share the exciting news with his 141,000 followers by posting a loved-up snap with his wife-to-be.

The photo showed him wearing a black shirt with a silver chain around his neck and a smile plastered across his face as Virginia, 26, lifted her hand up to reveal the pear shaped diamond.

The American actress, who has starred in Marvel's Runaways and David Gordon Green's horror film Halloween, donned a gorgeous white dress with a plunging neckline for the occasion.

Virginia held up a glass of what appeared to be white Champagne as she smiled for the camera alongside her new fiancé.

In the caption, Jed wrote: "Popped a lil’ question! I love you more than anything @ginnygardner," followed by a black heart emoji.

To which she responded by joking: "Yes I GUESS".

Fans were quick to gush over the news as one person wrote: "Congratulations you guys!!! I’m so happy for you and can’t wait to see what you do together!!" with three celebration hands emojis.

Another said: "Congratulations!! That's awesome! So happy for the both of you!" with a black heart emoji, while a third added: "Congratulations to you both!" with a Champagne flutes emoji.

Virginia also took to her Instagram feed to post the same photo alongside another with their dog, who had a tag on that read: "Will you marry Daddy?"

"One million times yes. Love you forever and ever." she wrote in the caption.

Musician Jed confirmed he was dating Virginia last year. Prior to this, he had remained single after his split from Little Mix star Jade Thirwall.

Jade, 28, and Jed started dating back in 2016 and the pair stayed together for three years before parting ways in July 2019.

It was said they decided to call time on their relationship after their “hectic work schedules” meant they spent time apart.

A source told MailOnline at the time: “Jade and Jed have decided to end the relationship. There is honestly no big drama, it has just sadly run its course.”

The source added: “They spent so much time apart as Jed is on tour constantly in the USA with his band The Struts."
