FERNE McCann's ex-boyfriend has got engaged to a former glamour model while behind bars – with the pair planning a prison wedding.
Annie Bull showed off an intimate tattoo after acid attacker Arthur Collins asked her to marry him.
She told friends and family he'd got down on one knee as she visited him in jail.
The beauty then shared snaps of her new ink on social media.
The tattoo of Collins' name is under her boobs.
Beneath a photo of the tat and her engagement ring, she posted: "I said yes.

"I will love you forever."
When approached by The Sun, she shyly said "thank you" but refused to offer further details on her engagement to the Category A inmate.
Annie, who has previously posed for saucy snaps on OnlyFans and has a teenage daughter, runs a vegan and vegetarian food business.
She was previously close to tragic Jake McClean, who died in a car crash in Turkey which left his Towie star lover Yazmin Oukhellou in hospital.

However, some of her pals are worried Collins was using her to "get back" at his ex Ferne after her own engagement.
One said: "Arthur is using her to get back at Ferne. It is obvious he has been desperate to send Ferne a message. It's pathetic."
Ferne announced her engagement to boyfriend Lorri Hanes last week – just seven months after going public with the property developer.
The former Towie star, 31, shared the news with Instagram followers , alongside a first look at her sparkling engagement ring.
Captioning a photo of herself and her new fiancé locked in an embrace, she wrote: "So happily ever afters do exist.
"I cannot wait to do forever with you baby."
ACID THUG'S PRISON WEDDING
A friend of 33-year-old Annie told The Sun yesterday: “Annie and Arthur have mutual friends in Essex.
"She agreed to go and visit him six months ago, and they got on like a house on fire.
“She says she has found her soulmate. She is madly in love with him.
“The proposal was only a matter of time. They will be getting married in prison.
“Ferne’s proposal was a coincidence and nothing to do with Arthur asking Annie to marry him.
“Annie is just focused on helping Arthur with his rehabilitation.

"He is focused on getting the counselling and completing the therapy he needs – and generally behaving well inside – so he can get out of jail and rebuild a life with her."
The pal says Collins "does not deserve to rot forever" – and he sees a "happy future with Annie".
McCann confirmed her romance in January, shortly after the collapse of her six-month relationship with DJ Jack Padgett.
But she was left blindsided when a video of Lorri taking drugs was shared online. At the time, they were filming an ITVBe programme in the Maldives with her daughter Sunday.
McCann was in a relationship with Collins, with whom she shares Sunday, but the couple split after he was jailed for 20 years for throwing acid over a crowd at a London club in 2017.
