Are Nicole Scherzinger and Lewis Hamilton engaged?

Usually the announcement of an engagement by the girl in question's father would be considered confirmation enough, but apparently not when it comes to Nicole Scherzinger and Lewis Hamilton.

Alfonso Valiente, Nicole's dad, told journalists that his daughter's boyfriend of four years had finally popped the question, but the chief Pussycat Doll has come back on Twitter saying it's all rumour: "Lewis and I woke up this morning and read we were engaged! Sorry to disappoint u all but it's not true."

The singer and Formula One driver have been dating since November 2007 and despite busy schedules and the trials of a long-distance relationship, they seem to be going strong. Here's hoping they're just keeping it quiet - secret weddings are all the rage right now.
