Matthew, who played Neville Longbottom in the films, began dating event planner Angela Jones at the beginning of this year, and after a whirlwind romance, the pair are now planning a wedding.

Matthew , 27, proposed in Paris last month, and shared a selfie of the couple in front of the Eiffel Tower. The picture featured the huge sparkler, and captured the tower where he asked her to marry him.

According to TMZ , Angela works at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. She’s reported to have met Matthew at Wizarding World event there in January. She was previously married, and was granted a divorce in July. 

A spokesperson for Matthew confirmed the engagement, saying: “They’ve both over the moon. They got together in July and hit it off straight away.”

In the past, Matthew hasn’t spoken much about his love life, but before Angela, he dated teacher Alison Wynd.

Matthew underwent one of the biggest transformations of recent years, going from geeky schoolboy Neville Longbottom to hunky magazine cover star.

He admits it wasn't easy: "It’s tough. I do the pub quiz every week, and I'm sitting there every Wednesday with a Diet Coke... I’m off sugar and I can’t really eat carbs.

“I really wanted to see if I could stick to such a strict regime, and to really understand what it's like to have a goal like that and really 110% go for it.”
