Geordie Shore star Marnie Simpson has said she has now "lost all emotion" when it comes to her failed engagement with former TOWIE star Ricky Rayment.

The eleventh series of Geordie Shore is set to return to our screens tomorrow night (20 October) and this time round, viewers will get to see Ricky pop the question to Marnie.

Surprising his former flame out in Greece where she was filming with her co-stars, Ricky surprised Marnie and proposed on camera. Sadly though, things never worked out for the pair and as Marnie prepares for her engagement to be aired out to viewers, she admits she won't be tuning in to relive the moment happening.

Speaking exclusively to Reveal, four months after Ricky initially asked her to marry him, Marnie told us: "I probably won't watch it. I've kind of lost all emotion towards it now."

Signs of trouble for Marnie and her reality star beau first appeared back in August, with the starlet confirming her split from Ricky last month. Addressing her followers on Twitter, Marnie said a "very important chapter in her life" as ended and she is now "moving forward".

As a result, she is putting her relationship with Ricky behind her and confessed she is slightly concerned that watching back his proposal could see old feelings come flooding back.

Since their break up, rumours have surfaced suggesting Marnie and Ricky could be getting back together. At the time, Marnie was quick to shut such speculation down, reiterating to us when we caught up with her that both she and Ricky are now trying to move on.

However, she was quick to add that the couple did end things amicably.

"We don't speak now, but we haven't ended on bad terms," she insisted. "If I was to see him it wouldn't be nasty or anything, I'd still say hi."

While Ricky and Marnie have both openly spoken about their split to the press, it's still not completely known what had caused their break up.

The pair had been in talks to give things another go, but after Marnie kissed her co-star Aaron Chalmers in the weeks after she and Ricky had called it quits, her ex-beau saw it as the final straw for their romance.

Throughout her time on Geordie Shore, Marnie has enjoyed an on/off fling with Aaron, but she insists she won't be rekindling anything with him any time soon, despite now being single.

"I think it's a bit too soon to talk about other boys," she told us. "I've got to respect Ricky's feelings."

Geordie Shore continues Tuesday 20 October at 10pm on MTV.
