Geordie Shore star Marnie Simpson has appeared to finally confirm her split with fiancé Ricky Rayment.

The couple have been plagued by split rumours since the end of August, after Marnie told fans she was "heartbroken" on Twitter. While both she and Ricky chose not to comment directly on such claims, Marnie's friend Chloe Goodman insisted the star's heartbroken tweet had been about her puppy and not the former TOWIE star.

Since then, both Marnie and Ricky have spoken about the breakdown of their relationship to the press and now, Marnie has seemed to confirm the pair's split with a series of tweets.

Reportedly spurred on by a tweet Ricky had posted (and has since deleted) suggesting he was not single and is now dating somebody else, Marnie once again told her followers she was "heartbroken".

This time, however, she followed up her initial tweet with a series of others that read: "The official end to a very important chapter in my life. Thinking positive brings positive things. Moving forward to the future... Everything happens for a reason. If something isn't meant to be, it won't be."

Marnie's tweets come after reports claimed she kissed her Geordie Shore co-star Aaron Chalmers on a recent trip to Italy.

Despite having just broken up with Ricky, the starlet is thought to have smooched her former flame Aaron onstage in front of hundreds of onlookers. A source told The Daily Star: "The kiss was a spur of the moment thing at a PA. A lot of the Geordie Shore cast were there and everyone was drunk. The crowd were chanting 'Aaron and Marnie' so they went for it."

They added that Ricky was aware of the kiss and saw it as the "final straw" for himself and Marnie.

Such reports came after Ricky posted a series of cryptic tweets. He told followers he was "moving on", after tweeting: "That what happens when you think u can trust your pals with your code! #donttrustanyone."

Ricky and Marnie first began dating earlier this year, after meeting at an NTAs after party back in January. Their whirlwind romance saw the pair get engaged just six months later, with Ricky proposing to Marnie while she was filming for Geordie Shore's new series in Greece back in June.

Shortly after, Marnie gushed Ricky had made her "the happiest girl in the world" and made sure to show off her engagement ring on Instagram.

Seeming nothing but loved-up, the pair even had each other's initials tattooed onto their wrists. Despite the inkings seeming a huge commitment to some, Ricky told Reveal at the time his tattoo wasn't a big deal.

"I know we're going to be together forever and because of how committed I am to her already, it wasn't a big deal," he said.
