Marnie Simpson has said she doesn't regret falling in love with ex-fiancé Ricky Rayment, but she does regret getting engaged and briefly leaving Geordie Shore.

The Newcastle star became engaged to former TOWIE regular Ricky back in June, and then announced she was quitting Geordie Shore. But she and Ricky split in September, and she returned to the show. summer party, Royal Vauxhall Tavern, London, Britain - 23 Jul 2015

Speaking to Daily Star Sunday, she said: "Looking back, I do regret getting with him because I don't think he was the person that I thought he was. I can't regret falling in love but I do regret leaving the show and getting engaged."

She added Ricky had told her he wanted to retreat from the limelight, but after they broke up, he started attending premieres and getting photographed.

"I feel like he wanted me off Geordie Shore and out of the limelight," she added.

Marnie and Ricky's engagement was aired on the finale of Geordie Shore last year, after cameras filmed the moment he popped the question in Greece. At the time, Marnie described herself as the "happiest girl in the world." The couple even had each other's initials tattooed on themselves.

Speaking earlier this year, Marnie said: "I'm so over Ricky," she claimed. "There is totally nothing there anymore. I still have this really ugly tattoo... that definitely has to go."

Ricky, meanwhile, had his tattoo covered up with an image of supermodel Gigi Hadid!
