Talking to Elise at home, Piers said: "This is Stevie, who I actually got to do a video proposal to your mother when I proposed to your mother. True story."

"Did he just call to say he loved her?" Susanna joked.

"I bumped into him in a restaurant in LA, and I got him to do a video to Celia telling her to marry me, and because I think she loves Stevie Wonder, I think that tipped me over the edge!"
