Former TOWIE star Ricky Rayment befriended an adorable penguin on his recent trip to Sea World Orlando, but little did he know it would be his ticket to flirting up a storm with Ex On The Beach's Lacey Fuller...

Yup, Lacey quite liked the look of Ricky's penguin, leading the Essex boy to work his charm on her over social media. Who said romance was dead?

Ricky, who is currently holidaying in Florida, headed to Sea World for the day yesterday and was lucky to get up close and personal with the park's penguins at its Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin attraction.

He got to grab a cuddle from Sherlock the penguin and tweeted shortly after: "Had a great day backstage at @SeaWorld learning about how to protect the ocean! #research #protection #savetheocean."

Ricky's penguin tweet didn't go unnoticed by Lacey. She replied to Ricky's tweet, telling him: "I want one."

Cue the slew of flirty tweets that followed...

Lacey had asked Ricky to 'set her up' with one of Sherlock's penguins friends, but he refused, telling her they were all his instead. When Lacey called him "greedy", Ricky cheekily replied: "@laceyfuller_ I've never been one to share." - A reference to Lacey's love triangle with Nancy-May Turner and Scotty T, perhaps?

Lacey shot to fame on the fourth series of Ex On The Beach, alongside Nancy, Scotty, Jordan Davies and Megan McKenna. Fans watched as she found herself caught up in a love triangle with Scott and Nancy and reunited with her worst ex ever, Brandon Myers.

Following the show, Lacey has been enjoying single life, while Nancy did briefly date Ricky for a little while. Does that mean romance is off the cards for him and Lacey then, thanks to girl code?

Lacey and Nancy are now BFFs, having moved past their Scotty T drama. Just last week, the girls were seen partying up a storm together, along with their co-star and Scott's ex Ashleigh Defty.
