Geordie Shore star Marnie Simpson has finally confirmed she and boyfriend Ricky Rayment are engaged.

Back in June, it was reported Ricky had proposed to Marnie on camera while she was filming for the new series of Geordie Shore out in Greece. Coming in for the final episode of the series, rumour had it the former TOWIE star got down on one knee and asked his girlfriend of six months to marry him.

While Ricky's rep confirmed the couple's engagement news, Ricky and Marnie are yet to directly comment on their new relationship status... until now, that is.

This week, Marnie is set to undergo breast surgery after she was left unhappy and with plenty of scarring following a botched boob job she had when she was 21 years old. Now she is undergoing more surgery to correct her last breast uplift and will be writing a diary documenting the op and her progress for The Daily Star.

In her first post, Marnie confirmed the news she and Ricky are set to marry, admitting it was their upcoming nuptials that spurred on her decision to have her uplift corrected.

"I won't even show my boobs fully in front of Ricky, who is the love of my life," she writes. "I am always conscious that he might see my ugly scarring, which is stressful. I have lived with it for a while, but I really want it put right for when we get married. I would love to think that I wouldn't be self-conscious of my hideous scarring on our wedding night."

She then goes on to admit while the pair are heading for the aisle, it'll be some time before they actually say 'I do'.

She adds: "Now, we are not getting wed for some time yet, but I love him so much and I want it to be just right for him."

Marnie's comments come after Ricky's pal and former co-star Mario Falcone teased to Reveal he knew everything about the couple's engagement.

Not giving anything anyway, however, he cryptically told us: "They do seem very loved-up and my mum always says 'when you know, you know'. So if it is true... congratulations to them."

Ricky and Marnie first began dating earlier this year, after meeting at an NTAs after party back in January.

Shortly after becoming an item, the couple were often spotted gushing about each other on social media and it seems their relationship has gone from strength to strength.

Despite only having been together for several months, Ricky has openly spoken about his desire to marry Marnie and settle down with her. While visiting Marnie out in Greece not too long ago, Ricky even had her initial 'M' tattooed onto his wrist to prove his commitment to her.

And showing her beau the feeling is mutual, Marnie returned the sentiment last month, getting an 'R' and a love heart etched onto her's.

Her new body ink came after Marnie told fans fiancé Ricky makes her the "happiest girl" in the world. N'aww!
