The McFly boys are all grown up and settling down and it seems Dougie Poynter is keen to follow in the footsteps of bandmate Tom Fletcher, who proposed to girlfriend Giovanna Falcone last year.

24 year old Dougie didn’t have a great start to 2011 after ending up in rehab, but his fortunes turned around in the latter half of the year, as he was crowned King of the I’m a Celebrity jungle and spoke of the new love in his life – Lara Carew-Jones.

Dougie has made no secret of the fact he would love to marry Lara and he has even started thinking about the type of wedding he wants.

Lara - don’t let this man go on Don’t Tell the Bride.

Dougie told TV Buzz: “Lara and I are basically the same person in two different bodies.

“There’s a rumour we’re getting married and I’m not sure where that came from. Will I marry Lara? Definitely! I’d quite like a Star Wars themed wedding.” Lara’s a lucky lady…

Nuptials aside, Dougie is set to join bandmate, and Strictly Come Dancing 2011 winner, Harry Judd at tomorrow night’s National Television Awards.

I’m a Celebrity is nominated in the Reality Programme category, while Strictly bosses are hoping to take the Talent Show gong.

Cheeky Dougie added: “ Harry and I were joking about both doing reality shows and I pointed out that I had to eat penis, wheras all he had to do is dance around in sequins.” Fair point.

The National Television Awards air Wednesday January 25 from 7.30pm. Results and gossip from the awards will be available on
