7 Things Lauren Goodger Needs To Know About Dating Ricci Guarnaccio
Now that TOWIE's Lauren Goodger and Geordie Shore's Ricci Guarnaccio are having a Celebrity Big Brother romance we thought we'd do our bit...
Is it true love? Is it just showmance? Does anyone actually care?
Whatever's going on with Celebrity Big Brother's latest couple, we figured we should do the right thing and give Lauren Goodger a bit of advice when it comes to dating our old pal Ricci Guarnaccio.
So Lauren, here's the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth on former Geordie Shore lad, Ricci:
#1 He falls in love quick (we're talking overnight quick)
We've noticed a pattern here Lauren, because when the Tyneside hunk joined Geordie Shore he fell for Vicky Pattison the minute he entered the house, going head-to-head with Vicky's then boyfriend to win her affections. Just check out the size of her birthday bouquet:
If he hasn't splashed the cash on any lavish gifts yet, now's the time to drop those hints.
#2 He's prone to public displays of affection
Once you're Ricci's girl, that's it. He'll "box you off" (that's Ricci chat for letting all the other lads know to stay away).
And as and when you guys make it official, he'll probably want to shout it from the roof tops… or a DJ booth, as we witnessed in one of Geordie Shore's most cringeworthy moments of all time.
#3 He cannot drink to save his life
If you watched Geordie Shore, you'll know what we're talking about here. 'Ridiculously Good Looking Ricci' is prone to becoming 'Rowdy Ricci' when he's had a few. And he's not ashamed to throw a temper tantrum.
Just look at what happened when he got involved in a row between Vicky and her then co-star, Sophie Kasaei.
Ricci may be a protective lover, but we all know that violence isn't the one. Our advice Lauren, is to keep Ricci well clear of the booze if you want to keep that temper of his under wraps.
#4 He's romantic and caring
During his time on Geordie Shore, Ricci regularly wined and dined Vicky, and when it came to their big engagement he made sure the whole of Cancun knew about it by organising a plane to fly overhead with a 'Will You Marry Me’ banner.
If he ever decides to pop the big question again he’ll certainly have his work cut out topping that one.
#5 He's a traditional type
Ricci's romantic and caring, but he also likes a woman to act like a lady at all times… meaning he didn’t handle it well when Vicky threw her bra across a room and outright refused to let her get undressed for a spray tan with her female friends.
But the most notorious incident has got to be the time all hell broke loose because Vicky was letting her hair down too much with her mates during their trip to Cancun:
#6 His nickname's Quicky Ricci for a reason
Rumour has it that Lauren and Ricci are holding back on consummating their new relationship and are taking things slow.
Top tip from us Lauren - don’t leave it too long. According to the Geordies, Ricci’s a one minute wonder. Hit play and you'll see what we mean...
#7 He has a history of kiss and tell
In case you were wondering why there’s so much animosity from Vicky towards Ricci, it seems she’s never been able to fully move on from his decision to sell a story about their relationship. She finally confronted him in true Ice Queen fashion during their reunion on Ex On The Beach:
There's every chance he's learned from his mistake, but Lauren - you have been warned.
