Big Brother star Hughie Maughan has had his say on Ryan Ruckledge getting a tattoo of his name etched across his chest.

Following his eviction from the Big Brother house nearly two weeks ago, Ryan decided to have his new flame Hughie's moniker inked onto his chest and across his heart.

He revealed the tat to Hughie when he returned to the house during Big Brother's court room style task, and while Hughie has said he finds the inking "epic", he's not so sure he'll be returning the favour...

Speaking to OK!, Hughie said: "I don't know if I'm as crazy as Ryan to get something like that done..."

"I couldn't believe that when he came in and showed me he'd got a tattoo of me," he added. "I think it's amazing, it's epic and it's the best present I've ever got."

Ryan unveiled his tattoo on Twitter and told his followers at the time: "The long awaited tattoo of Hughie @bbuk #bbuk #hughietowin."

While some speculated whether the design was real or not, others gushed over how "adorable" the gesture was.

Ryan, meanwhile, tweeted to say that he thought it was fate meeting Hughie. He said: "I applied for 8 years and there's a reason why I got on this series not one before, to meet him! [Definitely] fate."

The pair struck up a romance while living together in the house, and they were finally reunited following Big Brother's live final last night (26 July). Hughie just missed out on being crowned the winner and finished in second place to Jason Burrill.

Tweeting this morning, Ryan revealed that he had spent the night with Hughie after partying with their fellow housemates at the show's wrap party. He gushed: "In bed at the hotel with @hughie_maughan happiest person ever he should [have] won but he's the true winner.

"Thankyou so much @bbuk for giving me the opportunity can't believe it's all over but I've met someone amazing and this is just the start."
