'Little Britain' star David Walliams is engaged to be married, it was reported today.

The 38-year-old comedian told the Sun newspaper he proposed to Dutch supermodel girlfriend Lara Stone, 25, in Los Angeles last week.

He said: “It’s true, we’re engaged and blissfully happy. I wasn’t planning to make a public announcement because I am not a royal – yet.”

The couple are said to be in Brazil at the moment, where Lara is modelling at Sao Paolo Fashion Week. They have been together since May last year.

Walliams – whose previous girlfriends include models Lisa Snowdon and Abi Titmuss – stars with comedy partner Matt Lucas in 'Little Britain'.

Among the characters he plays are transvestite Emily Howard, whose catchphrase is: “I’m a lay-dee.”

He has also acted on stage and authored a children’s book.
