Speaking in this month's edition of Cosmopolitan magazine, the TV presenter took time to reflect on the men she's dated in her life, by penning an open letter to the men she’s loved, lost and found.
And, addressing her husband-to-be, she revealed: 'I saw you on TV before we’d even met.
'I followed you on Instagram and you followed me back with the simple, emotionless line: Thanks for the support. (I now know, of course, it took you hours to come up with that!)
'It made me laugh so I gave you my number. A few days later, we met.'
The couple got engaged at the end of April after what has been a whirlwind romance since meeting at the start of 2018.

Caroline insisted she was content with life as a single woman, explaining: 'I’d been single for three years before I met you. And, to be honest, I wasn’t sure I had room in my life for anyone new.'
'I wasn’t scared of being single on my 40th birthday in the same way I was on my 30th birthday. I was good at being by myself.'
Caroline even gave an insight into her very first date with Andrew, as she gushed: 'People talk about meeting someone and feeling as though you’ve known them your whole life. That’s what it felt like when I met you.
'I'll never forget seeing you walk into the restaurant – tall, with a smile 10 miles wide, not just for me but for everyone in there. Talking to you was effortless.
'There were no first-date nerves – just two people laughing and getting to know each other until the early hours. It was how all first dates should be.
The television presenter divulged details of the first sweet gesture which Andrew made for her, soon after their first date.

'Two days later, you turned up at my door with a teddy bear from Harrods, just like my first crush all those years ago. And, well, you’ve never left,' revealed Caroline.
Speaking at the start of this year's Love Island, the former X Factor presenter admitted her engagement has told her very little about relationships.
‘You'd maybe think I'm an expert now but I am not!’ she told MailOnline. ‘I am just a normal girl in a relationship just like everyone else.
'No relationship is easier just because you're in the public eye. It's all the same feelings.
‘I am definitely not an expert but what I like to think is that because I have had varied relationships I can be a good listener to the guys and girls and just listen and ask good questions.’
The presenter had a checkered love life prior to meeting Andrew – a brief romance with notably younger One Direction star Harry Styles divided opinion in 2011, while her short-lived relationship with Sam Smith’s manager Jack Street ended in 2015.
