The openly gay TV writer has announced he is getting married to his partner, but is yet to reveal who the lucky man is.

In an interview with Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show on Friday (17.06.11), he excitedly said: “I'm with a great fellow now who I've known for 15 years. We just got engaged and I'm very excited about it!"

As well as his engagement, Ryan also had an announcement about the future of ‘Glee.'

The producer is planning to phase out some cast members and bring in new characters as some of the glee club graduate from high school.

He said: “I don’t think of it in terms of eliminating or replacing. Because I think the thing about this cast is people love them and they are incredibly talented. They’ve left sort of an indelible mark.

“We’ve got Matt Morrison and Jane Lynch who will stay and be the male and female lynchpins of the series. But I think the fun thing about the show is it’s a celebration of youth and talent and I think that just like with the original cast, I think finding those young unknown people and giving them an opportunity to break into the business and become stars is a really fun and exciting thing and is the spirit of the series.”
