Anneka Rice's future daughter-in-law thanks train passengers for helping find lost diamond from ring

Anneka Rice's future daughter-in-law has thanked the people who helped her find the lost diamond from her engagement ring, hailing them the 'train of her dreams'.  

Tallulah Brown, from Suffolk, took to Twitter on Saturday to reveal how she nearly lost the diamond from the ring she'd received from her fiancé Tom Allott that same day, while travelling on a South West Train to Portsmouth at 5.30pm. 

The playwright told how her mum, fiancé, the train guard and her fellow passengers all helped look for the missing stone, and compared the moment she found the gem to a scene from romcom Love Actually. 

The screenwriter was nearly at the end of the train when she realised her diamond was missing from the ring, and began searching with her mum and partner by crawling on their hands and knees through six busy train carriages.

Tom's mum Anneka Rice, 61, shared the story of her future daughter-in-law's lost ring on Twitter 

She wrote: 'Shout out to my mum and fiancé who crawled with me along the ground of the six carriages. Shout out to the train guard who joined the crawling with a torch!' 

The guard then announced to fellow passengers that the stone was missing, prompting them to also look for the diamond - and eventually it was found by a man with a 'beer in hand'. 

She said: 'The same legendary guard announced on the tannoy could everyone look around their feet, from my aisle position, all along the train, everyone crouched down to look.

'Big thank you to the man in a striped shirt, beer in hand who found it by his feet and handed it to my mum.'

She then explained that her fellow commuters 'whooped and screamed' after discovering her diamond was safe, and thanked them once again from preventing her and the 'boy of her dreams' having their 'first marital wobble'. 

She said: 'To my carriage who whooped and screamed with me when we heard on the tannoy it was found! It was a proper Love Actually moment I'll remember for the rest of my life.

'Thank you to train of my dreams for helping me and the boy of my dreams not have our first marital wobble!'  

Hoards of friends and fans  commented on the story with one insisting she's 'so pleased' the diamond had been found 

Celebrating the news, Anneka, 61, tweeted: 'Future daughter-in-law in real-life Treasure Hunt!' - prompting hoards of friends and fans to comment on the story. 

Comedian Jenny Eclair said: 'Phew, how lovely x' to which Anneka replied: 'Utterly heartwarming. They arrived for supper elated. The guard was epic.'

One user said: 'What a lovely story... so pleased it was found!'   

Another user teased: 'Fabulous! Think your son needs to have a quiet word with the jewellers though!'

A third gushed: 'You couldn't make it up! So glad it was found'.  

Anneka 61, became the second celebrity to be voted off Strictly Come Dancing alongside her pro dancer partner Kevin Clifton, 36

This good news comes after the presenter, 61, became the second celebrity to be voted off Strictly Come Dancing along with her pro-dancer partner, reigning champion Kevin Clifton, 36. 

She exited the competition last weekend, losing out in a dance-off with goalie David James and Nadiya Bychkova. 

The pair took to social media to express their disappointment at being voted off so early in the competition, with Anneka tweeting: 'Aw... we're feeling a bit bereft.'
