Last year’s festive proposal

Last year’s Undateables Christmas special revolved around one major event: Daniel Wakeford’s proposal to his girlfriend Lily.

Daniel made his first appearance in The Undateables back in 2017 and appeared in the show’s first Christmas special, when he was looking for a girlfriend to make all of his Christmas wishes come true.

The 2018 Christmas special saw him take the leap with Lily and he proposed in a flamboyant, festive scene. Daniel crooned ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ with the help of a choir, before getting down on one knee and popping the question.
