Speaking backstage to The Magazine's Sarah Travers, the Newtownards native said she needed to give her huge diamond engagement ring, rumoured to cost at least £120k, a polish.

"Well, I never ever thought I'd have to use the words 'World Cup' when discussing a wedding, but it's all down to (that) and we have to assume England are going to the final, let's put it that way," she said.

"It's sort of in the hands of the football gods at this stage. We kind of know what we want to do, but it's a case of getting it right time-wise and everything else."

She wouldn't give many clues away apart from to say she did have plans for a "last-minute thing" if it was needed and England got put out.

"It's all slightly up in the air," she admitted.

When asked if she thought the wedding would be this year, she replied: "Kind of, I think so, yeah, but again we'll just see what happens."

She added that they are planning a honeymoon.

"We'd like to have a period of not having to go to work the next day and that doesn't happen in the football world at all because they train every single day of the year, so it would be nice to figure out a time that we could do that.

"There's a million and one moving parts at this stage."

The England squad for the 2014 Brazil World Cup will be announced in May.
