THIS Morning star Josie Gibson was left in tears at a surprise live proposal on today's Valentine's Day show.
At the beginning of today's episode, host Josie Gibson told viewers: "We've got a very romantic morning for you."
Co-host Dermot O'Leary said: "We've got one massive surprise, which could go so badly wrong.
"In just about 10 minutes one person in this restaurant, where is she Josie?"
Bristol presenter Josie said: "There they are, they've got no idea what's going on," to which Dermot interjected: "Well, he does, doesn't he. She's about to receive the proposal of a lifetime."
The camera then panned to couple Dan and Ellen sitting in the restaurant, Josie remarked: "He's very relaxed considering he's about to propose."

TV chef and This Morning favourite Gino D'Acampo piped up: "What about if she's going to say no live on television, you've completely messed up the show now.
"What about if she says 'no, I don't want to marry you', that's going to be embarrassing."
Josie added: "Well we have say nobody text her and lets hope she hasn't got her phone on her.
"It could be awkward, it could be romantic."

Dermot joked: "It's certainly going to be a bit of both," as Gino teased: "It would be funny if she said no."
The moment arrived and a singing waiter surprised an unsuspecting Ellen in the fake restaurant, while actors pretending to be other customers performed special dance for the couple.
A nervous Dan got down on one knee and popped the question.
He told Ellen: "Since the day I met you Ellen, you make me happy and so happy every day – you're the perfect mum to Arthur and I just want to spend the rest of my life with you. That's why I want to ask you to marry me."
A teary-eyed Ellen immediately said yes and the newly-engaged couple shared a kiss.
Returning to the studio, Josie was left emotional as she welled up and said: "That's so lovely, that's so amazing."
Viewers thought the on air proposal was a sweet gesture, with one writing: "Aww so lovely seeing couples in love! Congratulations Dan and Ellen."
But not agreed and some fans were left "cringing".
One posted: "I didn’t get the most romantic proposal but I’d take that over that cringe fest any day."
