Former TOWIE star Ricky Rayment has been encouraging girls to propose today, but is he after getting engaged?

Usually it's always the man that pops the question, but tradition says on a leap year (29 February), girls are giving the green light to get down on one knee and ask a guy to marry them.

Taking to Twitter, Ricky reminded us ladies that today the tables are turned and had everyone speculating if he was after a proposal himself...

Ricky told his 726,000 followers: "It's a leap year his year.. You know what that means girls" And added an emoji of a ring.

His tweet didn't go unnoticed and many were quick to comment. One asked Ricky if he "was after a few proposals", while a slew of girls insisted they would never be the one to pop the question.

One follower cheekily added: "Sorry I'm taken, I know you'll be disappointed."

We're guessing Ricky's tweet was all a bit tongue-in-cheek as the Essex boy recently revealed he "can't see any hope" for himself on the romance front.

Ricky had been wishing his parents a happy anniversary as they celebrated 26 years together. One follower replied to him "us next", but Ricky didn't seem to agree with them, saying, "I can't see any hope for me," followed by a crying with laughter emoji.

You never know, Rick. You might have a surprise coming your way today...

Ricky Rayment proposes to Marnie Simpson, Geordie Shore
22 December


Ricky has previously been engaged once before, after he proposed to his ex-girlfriend Marnie Simpson.

The pair enjoyed a whirlwind romance which saw Ricky follow Marnie out to Greece and propose to her on camera for the finale of Geordie Shore's eleventh series.

He and Marnie had seemed totally loved-up, but just a few months later, she confirmed the couple had split.

Ricky has since said he doesn't "regret" proposing to Marnie. He tweeted: "At the time it was a really happy moment in my life. Nothing to regret x."

Since then, Ricky has been romantically linked to Ex On The Beach star Nancy-May Turner. After sharing a kiss on a night out, he and Nancy ventured out on a date together.

However, she recently confirmed the pair are no longer dating. When asked by a fan what their situation was, Nancy replied: "Me and ricky are no longer."

While that ship may have sailed, Ricky has still been grabbing the attention of the ladies - especially after posting almost naked photos of himself on Snapchat in recent weeks.
