Love was most definitely in the air at Little Mix concerts this year.

As the group performed in London earlier this month, a same-sex couple got engaged and the whole thing was caught on video.

During Secret Love Song, a man got down on one knee, and proposed to his boyfriend. 

Amid claps and screams from onlookers, he accepted!

And now PinkNews has found another gay couple who also got engaged when the group performed in Birmingham back in November.

Sean Page, 29, proposed to his boyfriend James May, 27, at the concert last month.

He tells PinkNews that he had it all planned out after they were together for four months, and wanted to do it at the concert where his 12-year-old niece and his sister were there.

Page had wanted to get down on one knee to the song ‘Your Love’, but tells PinkNews that his niece tipped him off that they probably weren’t going to perform that song on the night.

“I panicked initially thinking I had missed my moment but then, as if it was meant to be, they began singing the acoustic version of “Touch”, which is also a beautiful song (with beautiful lyrics – ‘You and I and nobody else, feeling feelings I’ve never felt, Boy it’s the way you got me under your spell…’ so I seized the opportunity and told my sister, Lisa, to start filming!”

He had asked permission from May’s parents ahead of the proposal, and they have now provisionally set a wedding date.

He says: “Everybody has been so supportive, we’ve had over 1000 likes on Facebook on our engagement posts and the love has been overwhelming. I know he is the one and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him.

“We’ve booked our engagement party in February and are expecting over 100 people to attend. Wedding-wise, we have provisionally set a date in September, 2019 in order for us to save for the perfect day.”

Of the reaction to his proposal and what has happened since, Page says: “It’s been truly magical.”

In a text from his sister Ellie, she tells Page that the proposal was “legendary”, and that she wants to “rewind back to the concert.”

Check out a video of the proposal below:

At a show in Kansas City, Missouri in March, the band dedicated the song Secret Love Song to their LGBT fans.
