Thanks so much if you sent us your romantic engagement story – we’ve loved reading every single one! Romance certainly isn’t dead if your engagement stories are anything to go by!

We can now announce that the lucky winner of £100 Mecca Gift Vouchers is Lucy Jacobs! Lucy wins £100 worth of Mecca Gift Vouchers, which can be used in any of our Clubs or online at, for winning us over with this romantic tale:

Where to start lol :-) I dabbled a little in text dating 8 years ago and one profile kept catching my eye!!! Loving man wants to share his little flat with blue sofas and lovely fish tank!!! U must like music, good wine and chatting all night under candlelight!!! How could I resist? Postie Exeter was his catch name and one of my oldest and dearest mates is a Postie so yep he got me.

A meeting was arranged and a blind date followed. What started off as a potentially quick drink ended as a 4 hour heart to heart and only 2 drinks!!!! Then followed a whirlwind week which was amazing. I then went on a girls holiday to Tenerife…….. Booked before I met him…….. Where I pined and missed him dreadfully!!! A £800 mobile bill was to follow. Arggghhhhhh!!!!

When we about an hour from landing at Exeter airport on return there was an announcement over the tannoy for a mrs Anstead…….my name at the time…… To go into the main arrivals lounge after getting my luggage as an important message awaited me!! I actually got very anxious and worried as I thought something had happened to my children :-( .

Anyway we landed, I got my luggage and off I ran with my friends running on my trail!!! In the arrivals we went and there looking amazing was my future hubby suited and booted, roses in hand, on one knee infront of the whole crowd and he proposed to me! !!!!! There was music and Exeter staff cheering us on and then followed the air crew and pilot with champagne and congratulations!!!! They all knew!!!! It was totally amazing like one of those t mobile ads!!!!!

Happy valentines day everyone!!! We have been together 7 years now :-) and we still love airports lol :-) x x x x

Congratulations Lucy,  and Happy Valentine’s Day to all our Mecca lovelies!

Whatever your proposal story involves, we want to hear it – the more romantic the better!

Adam King and Lucy Rogers

To get you in the mood for a bit of Valentine’s romance, here are a few of our favourites!



Adam King and Lucy Rogers

The future Mr and Mrs King became YouTube sensations in November after Adam hired a choir to break into a rendition of Lovely Day on a train from Euston to Watford. 90 seconds in, Adam got down on one knee and asked Lucy to marry him. To the relief of the choir, the other passengers and most of all Adam, she said yes!

Holly Valance and Nick Candy

Clearly not one for mincing his words, property tycoon Nick had ‘WILL YOU MARRY ME’ written in fire as he got down on one knee and proposed. Holly then announced her news to over 118,000 Twitter followers, tweeting, ‘And I said YES!!! <3 Happiest day of my life!!!!! Xxxx’.

Kate Middleton and Prince William

William asked Kate to be his wife (and his future Queen) during a break in Kenya. William kept the £250,000 18-carat ring, which belonged to his late mother Diana, in his backpack for 3 weeks before he finally proposed.

After announcing the news to the waiting press, the Prince joked: ‘everywhere I went I was keeping hold of it because I knew this thing, if it disappeared I would be in a lot of trouble’. And as we all know, luckily everything went to plan!

Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman

To make sure his future wife knew just how much he wanted to marry her, Jordan filled a hotel room with rose petals and gift boxes for Christina to open, each with a present and poem inside. When Christina opened the last box, she found an engagement ring and Jordan got down on one knee. And how could she refuse him?

Think your own engagement beats our stories above? Let us know in the comments below for the chance to win £100 in Mecca Gift Vouchers!

I only ever remember winning a few things in my life; a handwriting competition when I was a 7 and a Live and Kicking competition (remember the Saturday morning show with Andy Peters?) Oh and that was just an Eastenders’ signed book but I’ve never entered a competition and knew that I would defiantly win something!

Well here at Mecca we like you to win so play our new promotion starting tomorrow until March 29th; Everyone’s a Winner!

Even if you don’t win a main bingo jackpot you will take away a share of a huge cash bonus! So what have you got to lose? Absolutely nothing!

The linked bingo games take place at 5pm, 6pm, 7pm, 8pm and 9pm in any standard 90 ball bingo room and any player that doesn’t win a 1 Line, 2 line or Full House prize, will have bonus cash shared amongst them.

So make sure you get involved because you are defiantly going to win something!
