She may have only got engaged a few days ago, but Holly Valance is already starting to plan her big day.

The 28-year-old is obviously very excited after her billionaire boyfriend Nick Candy popped the question in the Maldives last week - and so are her future family.

Candy's sister-in-law, Emily, who is married to his brother and business partner Christian, bought Valance a wedding planner book for Christmas.

'Happy Boxing Day from Paradise!' Holly Valance tweeted this photograph today of herself in the Maldives after her boyfriend Nick Candy proposed to her there

Taking to her Twitter account, the former Neighbours star wrote: 'My 1st pressie!! From my gorgeous future sister in-law Emily!!! Holy c**p I feel so adult! ♥.'

But rather than take notice of the small cream book that Valance is holding in the photograph, her followers will notice a very sparkly piece of jewellery.

Along with dark red nail varnish, a rather expensive-looking ring can be seen on the star's left hand.

The photograph will prompt speculation that this could be the star's engagement ring and looks as though it is a platinum band that is covered in several diamonds.

Valance also tweeted a photograph of herself by the couple's pool with the caption: 'Happy Boxing Day from Paradise! Still can't believe I'm gettin' hitched! This guy's got conjones!! ♥'

The 38-year-old property tycoon got down on one knee on a beach in the Maldives with the words 'Will you marry me' written in fire when he popped the question.

He had whisked Valance away to the Indian ocean island on Wednesday for a Christmas break, following the finale of Strictly Come Dancing last weekend.

And of course the actress-come-singer couldn't keep the news quiet for long.

Uploading a photo of the intimate moment on her Twitter page, an excited Valance, wrote: 'And I said YES!!! ♥ Happiest day of my life!!!!! Xxxx.'

However, the happiest day of her life will certainly be her wedding day whenever the pair decide to get hitched.

Last year, Valance admitted being in love with a billionaire sometimes irked her friends.

'I've got such a disgusting, wide, smug grin on my face all the time that my friends just want to slap me. I’ve never been so happy...' she said.

'I am a spoilt brat. My friends and my sister say: "I hate you!" when I show them what he’s bought me.'

So of course the couple's wedding day will be an extravagant affair as money is obviously no restriction with Candy.

Along with his brother, the dark-haired businessman has established his firm Candy & Candy - which has become one of Britain’s most successful luxury property developers.

The siblings managed to turn a £6,000 loan from their grandmother in 1995 into a £9billion global property portfolio.

Their most famous development is the One Hyde Park: The Residences which link to the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Knightsbridge, South West London.

But rather than get married in London, Valance may choose to say 'I do' in Monaco, where Candy also has a luxury home.

Or perhaps they'll choose to say their vows on his £50million super-yacht - either way it will certainly be a memorable occasion.
