Tom Walker helps Capital Breakfast listener propose live on air
There were tears all round on Capital Breakfast this morning when singer-songwriter Tom Walker helped a fan propose to his girlfriend in an emotional moment live on-air.
Tom was a guest on the show and after listener Kane from Failsworth called in asking him to help with proposing to his girlfriend Danielle, Tom sang a personalised rendition of the couple’s favourite song Just You And I.
Kane waited nervously on the line as Tom Walker and Capital Breakfast presenters Roman Kemp, Vick Hope and Sonny Jay FaceTimed his girlfriend Danielle, with Tom performing a personalised version of his hit single singing “Danielle and Kane could take over the world.”
It was then Kane’s turn to take over and pop the question, he said: “I’ve got a little question to ask you. Danielle, since the day we met, we’ve had our ups and downs, and we’ve been through some good and some bad.
“Well, this is one of the good days. I love you with all my heart, and you’re an amazing mother to our son, Oliver. You’re very kind and outgoing, the most thoughtful and caring person I’ve ever met, and because of those reasons I’m here today on Capital, with the whole nation listening, and I’m going to take this opportunity with Tom Walker to ask you a very important question. Danielle, will you marry me?”
There wasn’t a dry eye in the house!
Thankfully, Danielle said yes!
Roman Kemp thanked both Kane and Danielle saying: “This is the most amazing thing that we’ve ever been able to be a part of, thank you both of you for letting this happen. Every single person here is crying, this is amazing!”
After the proposal, Tom said: “He nailed the speech, that was a very nice thoughtful speech, he did way better than I did when I proposed!”
