Renee Puente and Matthew Morrison

Glee star Matthew Morrison has proposed to his partner Renee Puente.

The 34-year-old, who plays high school teacher Will Schuester, asked for his girlfriend's hand in marriage at Elton John's Aids Foundation event in London on Thursday night.

The actor tweeted: "An incredible night of LOVE @ejaf Ball. I'm going to marry my best friend! Happy day for me and @Renee_Puente."

The news was announced by Elton John at the White Tie and Tiara Ball.

The singer was then joined on stage by Chris Martin from Coldplay who sang the newly-engaged couple a version of Your Song.

The pair met at the same event two years ago.

Matthew Morrison is in the UK to promote his new solo album Where It All Began.

He performed at London's Bush Hall last week and also attended the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory press night on Wednesday night at London's Theatre Royal with Renee Puente.

He is signed to Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine's record label.

Morrison was previously engaged to All My Children actress Chrishell Stause.
