Men will go extra miles to do anything for love, a man has been seen putting an engagement ring inside a pasty, Tony Brown who must now take the crown for the most romantic man on the planet, for he has just popped the question using not just any Greggs item, but their seasonal Festive Bake.
Tony got down on one knee outside the Fenwick’s window (which Greggs is currently using as a mastermind advertising gimmick), presenting girlfriend Rebecca English with a ring and a Festive Bake while asking for her hand in marriage. ‘It must be the most Geordie proposal ever,’ said Rebecca. The Greggs gesture wasn’t planned, and Tony claims that he only had a Festive Bake handy because he was peckish.
‘I had been so nervous before hand down – hands down it was the most nerve wracking thing I’ve done. ‘We have two kids (Daizy and Molly) and compared to this, labour was an absolute breeze.’ We’re not sure Rebecca would agree with that last bit, but still, it’s all very sweet. After Rebecca said yes, the family headed over to Greggs to pick up more food in celebration
