Ed Sheeran, Cee Lo Green and Dermot O”Leary were among the celebrities who took part in a star-studded video to help a romantic boyfriend propose.

Session drummer Jim MacAulay spent a painstaking four years persuading stars to take part in the clip for his girlfriend Sophie Hancock.

Martine McCutcheon, Bob Geldof, Ronan Keating and Nile Rodgers also help to persuade the 30 year old to say yes to her lover during the five-minute proposal video, which was played to her before Christmas at a friend”s dinner party.

The film starts with comedian and actor Adam Buxton describing Jim as an "extraordinary man".

SWNSShe said YES! Session drummer Jim MacAulay”s proposal won over his girlfriend”s heart

It then cuts to a blank screen with the message "(Sorry it”s taken so long…)" before "LET”S GET MARRIED!! Please!?" appears on the screen

Thinking Out Loud singer Ed Sheeran appears and shares a bizarre story about conceiving children before telling the couple to get married and "have a bunch of kids".

X Factor presenter Dermot O”Leary also appears on screen to say: "Sophie, for the love of the baby Jesus, marry Jim."US megastar Cee Lo Green also tells Sophie to marry Jim before Ronan Keating jokes: "Sophie look I am sorry but you can”t have me but I tell you what, you can have your man Jim, go on."

SWNSRonan Keating took part in the vid

Actress Martine McCutcheon makes an appearance with the words "(more famous at time of recording)" appearing underneath her as she also encourages the couple to get hitched.

Even Bob Geldof gets involved, saying: "Sophie, we”re over, there is no use waiting for me, just go to Jim, just marry him and just forget about us."Jim, who lives with Sophie in Kings Heath, Birmingham, spent four years creating the video before surprising his partner with it a friend”s dinner party last Tuesday.

SWNSCee Lo Green got angry 

Yesterday, the musician joked that he felt under pressure to make the proposal perfect because the pair had been together for 12 years.

He said: "It has to be quite good when you have left it so long to propose. I am lucky that I have got a job where I get to meet lots of famous people.

"I deliberately asked people who I knew Sophie was a fan of. She loves Ed Sheeran so I was really pleased he was so willing to help out."I think it”s a video she”ll keep for a long time."

It took four years because you can”t just go up to people and ask them, you have to meet them and establish that you aren”t an idiot"

"I was there when most of them were filmed. I work away a lot with different bands so got to meet most of them at radios or festivals.

"All of the people on the list are people Sophie likes so it is a bit of an eclectic mix.

"I think my favourite is Adam Buxton because I think he was the first one and we are both big fans.

"I met David O”Leary when I was doing a live radio session and I used to work with Rudimental so they got Ed Sheeran for me when they did a US tour with him.

SWNSEd Sheeran got deep in the video

"We organised a surprise party for Sophie at a friend”s house under the pretence of it being a Christmas party.

"She was pretty surprised and excited, but I think really she was relieved I had asked."She said yes thankfully so it was all worthwhile."Sophie, a research manager, added:

"About 10 minutes after we arrived the host said her daughter had recorded a message for everyone so we all gathered round and then it cut to Jim”s video.

"We”ve been together for 12 years and he was secretly working on the video for about 4 years."It was worth the wait though. Of course I said “yes”."

The video has already been viewed by 1,800 people after it was uploaded to YouTube and yesterday Jim revealed that some celebrities didn”t make the cut.

He added: "Bob Geldof was really nice and I met Cee Lo Green at a festival and he didn”t want to do it but he did anyway.

SWNSBob is all about the romance

"You can”t see it on the camera but just out of shot is his massive minder who looked like he was going to kill me for asking.

"Not everyone made the final edit though. We had to cut David Hasselhoff because you couldn”t hear him over the background noise which was a shame."

The couple haven”t set a date for the wedding yet but plan to get married in 2015.

He shared the video along with the message: "So, as many of you know, for many years now I have been resisting mounting pressure to make an honest woman of Sophie Hancock, but I could hold out no longer so decided to ask her to marry me! (With help from some friends!)"

Asked what her response was by pals, he wrote: "Lol!, yes thankfully. Otherwise this”d be pretty dark."

Congrats guys!
