On paper they're hardly the perfect match.
She is a Cambridge graduate best known in her role as a clean-cut Blue Peter presenter.
He is a college dropout who has made his name as a foul-mouthed TV critic.
Despite the differences, Charlie Brooker and Konnie Huq have become engaged after nine months together.

Vive la difference: Konnie Huq, pictured at a premiere in 2007, was educated at Cambridge while smutty TV host Charlie Brooker dropped out of poly

The pair had made plans to marry in Las Vegas during a month-long road trip around America.

Brooker, a writer and broadcaster, dropped out of the Polytechnic of Central London before completing his media studies degree.
