Toseland to marry Katie Melua

Two-time WSB champion proposed to singer-songwriter over Christmas

FORMER World Superbike champion James Toseland is to marry singer-songwriter Katie Melua.

Toseland and Melua have been dating since last April when the pair met at one of her gigs. They were introduced after Melua's keyboard player noticed Toseland in the crowd.

Toseland retired from racing last year after complications following a wrist injury, the 2004 and 2007 champion is hoping to launch a career in music.
