Death-defying American's Got Talentstar Jonathan Goodwin has confirmed his engagement to Sherlock actress Amanda Abbington after weeks of rumors.

Amanda, who shares two children with Sherlock co-star and ex Martin Freeman from who she split in 2016, took to the comments section of the post to emotionally pen: 'I love you so much Fusband. We’ve totally got this.'
