He's made it no secret that he tried for eight years to get into the house and when he eventually did this summer, Ryan ended up meeting the man he is set to marry.
Now, he has paid tribute to the Channel 5 reality show and has had the Big Brother eye from his series tattooed onto his neck. We're not kidding!
Ryan took to Instagram to unveil the design and it's pretty spot on! Alongside his post, he explained the reasons why he opted for his new tattoo, telling his 79,500 followers: "It took me eight years to get into that Big Brother house but was always a dream for me to go on that show and what an amazing experience it was.
"Met some amazing friends in that house and an amazing guy so thought why not get the big brother eye tattooed on me to remember the most memorable summer of my life! Thanks to @officialundergroundink #dublin."
The inking seemed to have fans divided, but many told Ryan they "loved the story" behind it.
He had starred on Big Brother's seventeenth series alongside Alex Cannon, Lateysha Grace, Jackson Blyton and Georgina Leigh-Cantwell. He was the seventh housemate to be evicted and during his time in the house, viewers saw Ryan fall for Hughie Maughan.
The former X Factor star went on to declare his love for Hughie on his exit, and had Hughie's name tattooed onto his chest. While Hughie admitted he wasn't sure if he'd return the favour, he claimed that Ryan's tattoo was the "best present" he had ever received.
Since then, the pair have continued their romance on the outside and the boys now have a wedding to plan.
Hughie and Ryan announced their engagement at the end of September. The couple had fueled speculation they were set to wed on Twitter, a week before finally confirming the news to their social media followers.
Hughie had tweeted: "FINALLY me and ryan can announce that we are officially ENGAGED! We are so happy and everythin feels right, huge hi five 2 the doubters (sic)."
Ryan, meanwhile, told fans: "So the cats out the bag me and @hughie_maughan are officially engaged! So happy and can't wait for the future #biggaygypsywedding??"
