Arctic Monkeys’ Jamie Cook Engaged to Katie Downes
The couple have been together since meeting at a party in Liverpool back in 2006, when the band was riding high through their debut, ‘Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not.’ The album shattered British sales records for a debut and reached No. 24 in the U.S.
Downes is a model who has appeared as a Page Three girl in the Sun, as well as such publications as Loaded, Maxim and Nuts. She was also in a brief scene in the Rob Schneider vehicle ‘Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo.’ We would include a picture of her but, despite a prolonged and arduous search, were unable to find one where she was dressed to our standards. [Ed. note: A Google image search will show you what we mean.]
The Arctic Monkeys have recently finished up a world tour that saw them open up for the Black Keys. The Sheffield band plans to record their fifth album at some point in 2012, with the hope of making a “heavier” album than their previous efforts.
