The hunky marketing manager declared his feelings for Laura at The Santhiya Koh Yao Yai Resort & Spa, located in southern Thailand.

Fearing he had chosen Elise, Laura told Matty it was OK to let her go.

'It's OK. Whatever it is, it's OK ...  If you're gonna do it, do it,' she said, tears in her eyes. 

'Laura, I love you,' he said, as she burst into tears. 'I really do think you are so perfect.'

Asking for her right hand, Matty presented Laura with a diamond sparkler - but didn't propose.

'I wanted to give you this ring as a sign of just how much I care about you,' he explained. 

Earlier, Matty let Elise down, telling the bubbly marketing executive he loved Laura, not her.

'You are so worthy of being happy and finding true love but I'm so sorry that it's not with me,' Matty said. 

 Shattered, Elise thanked Matty giving her the chance to get to know him.

'And I wish you all the best in that.'
