The special moment caught on camera by On Pointe Photography at the end of the dance show at Dormston's Mill Theatre

The finale had just ended at NN Cheer and Dance's (NNCA) second show of the year on Saturday at Dormston's Mill Theatre when senior coach Lauren Bollans was called on to stage to receive a special 'thank-you'.

Little did she or the audience know, her partner Callum Goodby was about to appear from the sidelines to pop the question.

After professing his love and telling the audience they had been together more than three years, Callum asked Lauren to marry him - and she said "YES!".

Huge cheers and applause erupted across the theatre as celebratory glitter cannons were fired over the loved-up couple before they went to enjoy some champagne at the bar.

The moment was captured perfectly by On Pointe Photography in images that have documented Lauren's complete surprise.
