Johnny Ruffo has had fans abuzz overnight, after sharing a sweet post of him and girlfriend Tahnee Sims, along with a message about marriage.

But it doesn't seem as though the 30-year-old former Home and Away star will be popping the big question any time soon.

Johnny explained that he cheekily stopped Tahnee from catching a flying bouquet at a recent wedding they attended.

"As the bouquet came flying towards @tahneesims she lept above the pack ready to take a high flying mark, much to her surprise i was barrelling in from behind and threw an @alexrance like spoil to knock the bouquet to the ground! Not this time darling!! (sic)," he wrote.

Fans were quick to respond to the actor's cheeky post.

Johnny and Tahnee, who have been dating since 2015, have truly kept a united front in the past year amidst Johnny's serious health battle.

Johnny shot to fame after starring on The X Factor, placing third in the 2011 series.

Proving to be a triple threat, he has not only danced and sung his way into the hearts of Australians, but he's shown off his acting chops with a role on popular soap Home and Away.

He played Chris Harrington on the Channel Seven Logie award-winning drama from 2013 to 2016.
