Reflecting on his profound connection with Johnston, Riches expressed gratitude for finding a partner who accepts him unconditionally, emphasizing the profound sense of love and security he feels in their relationship.

As he proudly displayed a stunning silver ring on his finger, Riches reaffirmed his boundless affection for Johnston.

The picturesque engagement scene bears resemblance to the romantic narratives depicted in Alice Oseman’s beloved Heartstopper comics, in which Riches portrayed the character James McEwan.

Unlike the fleeting romance of his on-screen counterpart, Riches and Johnston’s commitment signals a enduring union built on love and mutual understanding.

In a playful TikTok video, Riches revealed Johnston’s elaborate surprise, which involved a trip to Sorrento and a request for him to attire in all white—a gesture that left him pleasantly suspicious.
