The Love Island winner was shocked to learn of their pending marriage when he was woken by phone calls and insists they have no plans to wed.
Jack's girlfriend Dani, the daughter of EastEnders star Danny Dyer, uploaded a picture of a band on her ring finger on Instagram during her live show on Capital FM this morning — but it was one big hoax.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun just hours after the prank fooled the nation, Jack said: “That was funny that was.
"I was sound asleep my phone kept ringing. I was going, 'Who's got the audacity to ring me at this time?' So I was really annoyed.
"'You're engaged. Why didn't you tell me', I went, 'What are you talking about?' They were angry, they were actually angry.
"'I don't know what you're talking about'. 'Well you're engaged'. I went, 'No I'm not'. They went, 'Yes you are'.
"I'm actually having an argument with my mates and my brother about being engaged.
"I was laughing, 'I'm not'. I just started cracking up. I was like, 'So stupid'.
"I hadn't looked at anything so all I had was people telling me I'm engaged and I'm going, 'No I'm not'.
"So that's all I had to go on at the start. I thought I had to have a look at this, 'Ahh haha'.”
Sharing a picture of a silver ring with a simple diamond, Dani, 21, wrote: "I said yes. My soulmate."
Jack has previously admitted he wants to get married next year but has no immediate plans to pop the question.
He said: "I think we're going to have a bank holiday (when we get married).
"There are no plans for it. It's just a joke, I don't know what to say. It's funny.
"I'd like to think so. At the end of the day we want buy somewhere to get settled. It's not something we've thought about now.”
