Mario Falcone couldn't wait to embarrass his pal Ricky Rayment over his proposal to ex-fiancee Marnie Simpson.

Last night, viewers watched as Ricky asked Marnie to marry her while she was filming in Greece with her Geordie Shore co-stars. And one person tuning in was his former TOWIE co-star Mario, who was quick to rib Ricky on Twitter for the now slightly awkward moment...

He tweeted: "Can't wait to watch #GeordieShore later... Double awkward @RickyRayment #shehesitated."

Ricky replied: "You've been waiting so long for that tweet. I'm not watching it.. I'm having an early night lol."

When Mario said he would then ring Ricky in the morning to no doubt poke fun of him so more, the Essex boy joked: "Kill me before I wake up please."

Ricky then pointed out that he and Mario are more similar than his friend may think, tweeting: "Not only do we have tattoos together we both have failed engagements #bffl."

Mario had proposed to Lucy Mecklenburgh on TOWIE three years ago, but their engagement was later called off after the pair found themselves at the centre of numerous cheating allegations.

Despite Ricky trying to leave Mario a little red-faced too, Mario then proved he has one up on the reality star, hitting back: "Hahahaha I kept the ring the... #schoolboy on your part hah x."

Ricky replied: "I tried and failed. #lifelessons"

Ricky's tweet comes after Marnie recently revealed she doesn't want to give her ex-beau back the ring he used to propose with.

Marnie said: "I'm in discussions about the ring. Ricky wants it back but I want to keep it because I really love it a lot. It's mine and I don't think I should give it back."

"Ricky said it's bad luck to keep something that didn't work out," she added. "He can't understand why I'd want to keep it. He can't see why, if I was to meet someone new, I would want to keep something he gave me. I'm guessing he'd want to sell it."

Sounds like she got her way!

Three months after announcing their engagement, Marnie revealed she and Ricky had split.

She confirmed the break up to fans, telling them an important chapter in her life had ended and she is now moving forward. Marnie has since ruled out a reunion with Ricky, admitting the pair aren't right for each other.

Ricky, meanwhile, has said he does not regret proposing to Marnie and has said it's a shame things didn't work out the way they had planned.
