David McIntosh appears to have enjoyed a turnaround in his fortunes after crashing a van full of dead badgers in Gloucester.
The Sun reports he and on-off girlfriend Kelly Brook have got engaged.
Mr McIntosh, a former Royal marine who starred as Tornado on the TV show Gladiators, was fined £91 with a £20 victim surcharge, told to pay £30 costs and his driving licence was endorsed with six penalty points earlier this month. He admitted driving without due care and attention when the van full of badger carcasses he was driving as part of the controversial cull in Gloucestershire crashed into a bus shelter in Worcester Street.
It is believed he proposed to model Miss Brook recently, with The Sun reporting she said 'yes'.
