British actor David Mitchell is engaged to wed his TV presenter girlfriend Victoria Coren.
The couple announced the happy news on Tuesday (20Mar12) by placing a traditional marriage announcement in U.K. newspaper The Times.
The notice reads, "The engagement is announced between David, son of Mr and Mrs Ian Mitchell, of Oxford, and Victoria, daughter of Dr Anne Coren and the late Mr Alan Coren, of London."
The funnyman later took to his Twitter.com account to thank fans for their well-wishes. In a post he writes, "Having received so many lovely messages today, I'm finally coming round to the idea of the internet. Thank you all. I'm incredibly happy."
Mitchell, the star of cult comedy Peep Show, began dating quiz show host Coren towards the end of 2010.
