The ex-TOWIE castmember spoke to New magazine about Marnie's current romance with fellow Essex star Lewis Bloor, which began in the Celebrity Big Brother house over the summer.
Ricky said: "I think they're under a lot of pressure because of the industry we're in. It puts a lot of strain on a relationship, especially because they met on such a high profile show."
As to whether he reckons Lewis may propose to Marnie one day, cheeky Ricky said he had no idea, but if Lewis did, he was welcome to use Ricky's own engagement ruing!
"She's still got my ring, so he can use that if he does! He has my permission to use it!"
We're not sure Lewis will take you up on that, Ricky!
When asked if he now regrets his own time with Marnie, Ricky replied: "Yeah. I know a lot of people always go, 'I don't regret it – it put me on the path I'm on now' and all that cliché bollocks. But I think I could've done without all the aggro. And she would probably agree. I don't miss her at all."
Ricky and Marnie's high profile romance featured on Geordie Shore, where viewers saw him pop the question during the cast's trip to Greece and Marnie gleefully accept.
However, three months later they split.
Now, Ricky has been dating new flame Kelly Price, and Marnie is with another ex-TOWIEstar, Lewis, although she admitted last week things have been difficult as they're long-distance: she's in Newcastle while Lewis is in Essex.
"It's really tough because we live so far away from each other," she explained on ITV's Loose Women.
"We had an argument and I deleted every picture of him on Instagram. I was really angry and immature and forgot everyone can look at it. I thought, 'Why have I done that?! I've put so much pressure on us.'
"It's hard, but we're working through it. Things on the outside are very different to how they are [inside the CBB house] and we have kind of got a completely different relationship to what we had in there, so it's back to basics."
Writing in her new column for Star magazine, the Geordie Shore star added: "It's been a difficult week with Lewis and I having a two-day argument, but my friends have been amazing. I love Lewis, but he needs to make some changes to the way he behaves if he wants our relationship to work."
Meanwhile, Marnie has not directly commented on Ricky's latest interview about her love life, but did cryptically tweeted: "And your still selling stories on me why. Embarrassing. SplitUp2YearsAgoMate AWKS (sic)."
