The couple had been planning a retreat to the Greek island as they had never been abroad together, and Bradley had planned to use the moment to propose.
But to Bradley’s surprise, Joshua, a journalism student, beat him to the act.

The couple decided to go on holiday for the first time together on July 21, the day after their four-year anniversary (L-R Bradley Fox-Jones and Joshua Barker)
The couple arrived on the island on July 21, the day after their four-year anniversary, and spent the day relaxing by the pool.
Bradley had planned to propose at the beach and suggested to go and take pictures with the sunset. The couple stopped at the bar for a drink so Bradley could steel himself for the moment.
Bradley said: ‘I knew I needed them. I’d keep going to the toilet so I could call friends and family for reassurance. I was really worried about it. I’ve been practicing getting down on one knee for months.
‘When Joshua proposed, I was shocked it’s a bit to stupid, but all I could says was ‘really?”
The video shows Joshua taking the knee first and proposing, to Bradley’s surprise.
When Joshua proposed Bradley said he was completely shocked as he had planning the proposal for months
After they both proposed to each other the pair kissed for a gorgeous sunset snap so they can remember the moment forever
After declaring his love, Bradley proceeds to do the same.
He added: ‘After the proposal we had the best holiday ever. It’s really strange because we’re an engaged couple now, but we’re still the same people. I didn’t grow up thinking I was going to get married.
‘I didn’t think I would be able to, because I’m very flamboyant. I didn’t think I was a person people would want to bring home. No one has genuinely loved me before Josh.
‘I was OK being single because I had resigned myself to it. But then, as soon as I met Josh I was like, wow, there’s really something here.’
