While his former TOWIE co-stars are filming the new series back home, he's been sunning himself and topping up his tan in beautiful Florida while visiting his parents.
Ricky spent yesterday fishing on a boat - and getting maximum tanning!
Alongside a picture of himself looking rather proud, the reality star said: "Caught a little bonnet head shark..excuse me being in my boxers but I was getting maximum tanning on the boat."
Sun, sand, blue waters... we are officially jealous!
But while Ricky isn't missing TOWIE, there is one thing he's definitely missing from back home: girlfriend Marnie Simpson.
The handsome star has been tweeting frequently about how much he can't wait to see his Geordie Shore star girlfriend when he gets back to the UK. Aww.
He even hinted to us in an interview he's ready to take the next step in their relationship: "When Marnie gets out of the Geordie Shore house, I want to sit her down and talk about her moving down to Essex and starting a family. I'm excited for our future together."
Ten reasons we want to be on TOWIE!
