"Three years ago I had the honour of working on Farmer Wants a Wife season 11," he wrote. "After filming Farmer Andrew’s backstory I was then tasked with casting his 'ladies'."

"After a one-hour Zoom with Jess (and 53 hours with hopefuls) during COVID, it was pretty clear that she was perfect for Andrew."


He added that he is "so glad" that "it has come full circle and this Farmer has found his wife".

Tim finished by writing, "Congratulations Jess and Farmer Andrew, another success story for Farmer Wants a Wife."

Jess announced the pair's engagement this week, sharing several snaps from the moment Andrew got down on one knee to pop the question.

In one snap, Jess appears shocked that Andrew has popped the question and covers her face with her hands while he holds the ring and laughs.

Fans were very excited for the pair, with one user commenting on the ring, writing, "Love it - it’s the colour of sunshine and happiness. Congratulations to you both."
