Ollie Locke has revealed he and his fiancé Gareth Locke will be taking each other’s surnames… despite already having the same name.
The Made in Chelsea star revealed his engagement to his friend of 10 years in an announcement in The Times last week and now, while speaking to Hello! Magazine, Ollie revealed they decided to both take each other’s surnames.
He said: “We are going to be Locke-Locke. I like the idea that his family and my family will be joined together.”
Ollie went on to reveal how Gareth popped the question and it was during a walk around Kensington Park Gardens.
He said: “We decided to go for a lovely walk with Bear [his dog] in Kensington Park Gardens which is my favourite park and we came across the Peter Pan statue, which is my favourite statue.
“I walked towards Gareth who was just standing there and he gave me a hug.”
Gareth added: “I was 200 yards away and I was thinking, ‘I have got to do this now’.”

I have known him for 10 years, and at many of my most important life moments he was in the background. Earlier this year we realised that what we had both been looking for was standing in front of us all along, the greatest hint was probably that we already have the same surname! I have never been happier and can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with someone who makes me smile like this every day! On Sunday I said yes Xx @garethplocke
