Early 2022 was a good time for Mark ‘Bez’ Berry as he saw himself on two big shows — Gogglebox season 4, and ITV’s Dancing On Ice. But while he certainly seemed to have fun reminiscing, it also brought back painful memories such as a serious tumble on the ice during his training.

Picnic and proposed on top of the mountain,” Mark took it to his IG to share the good news.
