Former TOWIE star Ricky Rayment has hit out at reports he has already moved on from ex-fiancée Marnie Simpson.

Ricky had fans speculating he had already met someone else, after he posted a tweet suggesting he was in a relationship. In a now-deleted post, the reality star had said "if he was single", he would definitely be using the dating app he was promoting.

That instantly had fans wondering whether Ricky had a new girlfriend and his tweet seemed to lead to Marnie finally confirming the pair's split on Twitter. Hitting out at such speculation, however, Ricky has now said the claims are completely untrue.

Marnie and Ricky were set to wed as he popped the question to the Geordie Shore star, six months after they initially began dating. Ricky had surprised Marnie in Zante, where she was filming for the new series of Geordie Shore, and proposed on camera.

Accepting his proposal, Marnie later told fans he had made her the "happiest girl in the world", before showing off her engagement ring on Instagram.

Now, however, the pair have split and on hearing such claims that he had moved on already, Ricky decided to set the record straight.

Earlier today, he tweeted: "The press are reporting that I have another girlfriend. This isn't true, don't believe everything you read. Unless it comes from me directly then its just rumours."

His latest tweets come after Marnie told followers she was "moving forward", following their break up.

Seeming to react to Ricky's "if I was single" tweet, Marnie said she was "heartbroken".

She then told fans: "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."

Reports of trouble between the ex-couple first surfaced last month. Fans grew concerned as the pair began to show signs of a split on social media. Both Marnie and Ricky had removed any reference to each other in their bios on Twitter and had changed their profile picture to one of them on their own instead of in a couple.

Since then, both have spoken out about the breakdown of their relationship to the press. While Ricky had hoped to reconcile the pair's romance, reports emerged suggesting Marnie had kissed her co-star Aaron Chalmers, and he has taken that as the "final straw".

Shortly after news of the kiss came to light, he cryptically tweeted: "That what happens when you think u can trust your pals with your code! #donttrustanyone."

He then told followers he was "moving on".
