Max George opens up about shock ‘proposal’ to Maisie Smith admitting he’s ‘glad it wasn’t real’

Max George recently shared an insight into his impromptu 'proposal’ to Maisie Smith that took everyone, including Maisie, by surprise.

The 34-year-old The Wanted singer left his 21-year-old girlfriend utterly shocked during the filming of ITV's The Chase Celebrity Special in April. In a clip obtained by MailOnline from an upcoming episode of Iain Stirling’s CelebAbility, Max reminisces about the near proposal, shedding light on the memorable incident.

The pop star admitted he was relieved that his proposal to actress Maisie wasn't real, as he disclosed her genuine off-camera response. Max revealed that although his girlfriend put on a show of excitement and emotion when he knelt down to propose, her true reaction was far from impressed.

Iain said: “The last time you were on a game show, you proposed to your girlfriend Maisie. Why did you do that? I thought it was real. You were on The Chase?”

Max admitted: “Yeh, right… It was a spur-of-the-moment thing. And, it was a joke, so…” Iain interuppted: “Do you know what girlfriends love? When their partner proposes to them as a joke.”

Max then explained: “No but it was like one of them things where Brad [Bradly Walsh] has said: 'so when's the big day?' and then everyone laughed.

“And I said: 'well it's funny you ask' and put my hand in my back pocket, like that, and Maisie went all sort of giddy. Off camera she shook her head, like that [awkwardly], so I'm glad it wasn't real.”

Iain then joked: “It was like a meme online, which pauses at that moment and goes 'this is when Max realised he f**cked up'.”

This isn’t the first time the pair have teased fans they’ve gotten engaged. In a TikTok video, the loved-up couple took a trip out to Frankie & Benny's for a 90s throwback meal. He asked if he could "get enough sauce on those wings," Max then said: "And then I popped the big question," as he could be seen sliding an onion ring onto the left finger of Maisie's hand.

In October, the smitten pair also enjoyed a "baecation" in Cyprus, from where Maisie posted a snap where she appeared to have a diamond ring sitting on the wedding finger of her left hand, prompting their fans to go into overdrive with speculation.

One person commented: "Is that an engagement ring?" while another said: "I thought the same". A third questioned: "Is that a ring? On your RING FINGER?!"

Max and Maisie also faced backlash from fans in April, as they teased that Maisie was 'pregnant' when they posted a snap of her holding her swollen tummy while on holiday in Abu Dhabi.

In the snap, The Wanted singer has his hand covering his mouth in fake shock as he stares down at her 'bump' which was covered with a large red love heart emoji.

"We've got some really exciting news…," she wrote. However, in the next story, the heart disappears to reveal a new caption: "I just had the best 5 course meal of my life," with a love heart emoji.
