East Londoner pops the question on Catchphrase

Love is in the air on STV as 22 year old East Londoner, Samuel Sanchas proposes to his girlfriend Victoria on this week’s episode of Catchphrase.

Samuel said: “I was worried about applying for Catchphrase just in case I actually made it on to the show and done terribly! Knowing me, I was likely to say some of the silliest answers and be remembered on telly as the guy who didn't have a clue! Looking back, I did still give all the silly answers however I walked away a winner – with a beautiful fiancé!”

The couple have been inseparable since meeting in February 2014 and at the time of filming were expecting their first baby girl, Olivia, who was born last month.

Samuel said: “If I'm honest, I didn't plan to propose on the show, but at that moment nothing would have stopped me! It's an amazing memory and I can’t wait to sit down on Sunday with my whole family and watch it back.”

Stephen Mulhern, the other contestants and the audience were all surprised by the romantic gesture.

Stephen said: “Contestants often surprise us with what they come out with on Catchphrase but what Samuel did took things into a different league. It was a lovely moment when Samuel got down on one knee and we all felt that love was in the air!”

To see Samuel’s surprise proposal, tune in to STV on Sunday 12th July at 7:15pm.
