Has Ricky Rayment already moved on from Marnie Simpson?

Following confirmation that he and Marnie Simpson have called off their engagement, Ricky Rayment took to Twitter this weekend to suggest he’s moved on already.

Ricky, 25, and 23-year-old Marnie met at the National Television Awards in January, and he popped the question in July – revealing he couldn’t wait to start a family with the Geordie Shore star.

But things turned sour this month, and Marnie has since claimed Ricky became verbally abusive towards her following the break-up.

Despite this, a tweet posted from Ricky’s account this weekend suggests he and Marnie may have resolved their differences – or he’s found a new love.

In what appeared to be a sponsored tweet for a new dating app, he wrote: “If I was single then Temptr would definitely be downloaded! Awesome app! [sic].”

Former TOWIE star Ricky has since deleted the message, but not before he sparked speculation about his relationship status.

During an interview with new! magazine, Marnie blamed Ricky for their break up. She said: “When we split up he called me every name under the sun and he called me a slag about 5,000 times. He told us he has always thought those things.”

But, in a conversation with a fan on Twitter, Ricky appeared to defend himself. The user wrote: “Why allow them to talk cr*p tho? Isn’t it a nightmare having to stay quiet?? [sic].”

Ricky replied: “Unfortunately there’s a lot of sh*t I have to put up with. But it’s the life I chose.” He then added: “It amazes me how even the most private of things are a priority to be be tweeted. #thisisourgeneration [sic].”
