Idris Elba is to marry for a third time after proposing to his American girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre during a screening of his new film.

The 42-year-old Luther actor has been dating beauty queen Sabrina, 29, since they met while Idris was filming The Mountain Between Us with Kate Winslet in Canada last year.

Rio Cinema in Dalston, London, confirmed the happy news alongside an Instagram video of Elba's proposal.

Meeting Sabrina clearly gave Idris a change of heart, however. Still 5 days to Valentines Day but @idriselba went down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend live on stage this morning before a preview of his film #Yardie'.

Idris Elba turned a movie screening into an unforgettable night.
