LONDON, Feb 11 — Another ‘confirmed bachelor’ bites the dust!
Idris Elba has proposed to his girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre.
The 45-year-old Luther and Thor star got down on one knee when the pair were on stage at a screening of his latest film Yardie in London yesterday.
Staff at the cinema could not resist sharing the couple’s happy news with their Twitter followers, writing on the social media site: “Another @Riocinemafirst! Still 5 days to Valentines Day but @idriselba went down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend live on stage this morning before a preview of his film #Yardie.”

Elba and Dhowre, who won Miss Vancouver in 2014, made their debut as a couple in September.
The engagement comes despite twice-married Elba recently suggesting he was unlikely to marry again.
Last July, he told Essence magazine: “Am I ever gonna get remarried? I don’t think so. Yeah, I don’t think so. Marriage is an institution of sorts. And I’ve done it. It’s not for everybody. It’s not my life’s calling.”
