Ricky Rayment Exits The Only Way Is Essex With 'Very Exciting Times Ahead'
But what could these times be?
Ricky Rayment has officially said goodbye to The Only Way Is Essex, as he reveals he's taking a break from the reality show which bought him into our lives.
The Essex lad, who is currently dating Geordie Shore hottie Marnie Simpson, has told fans that there are "very exciting times ahead"... whatever that means!
As for why he left, sources told the Daily Mirror: "Ricky felt it was time to go. Neither he nor Jess really wanted to keep on filming together."
"The storylines weren’t moving forward. Plus his new romance with Marnie is a bone of contention as there was no way bosses would bring a character in from Geordie Shore."
Meanwhile, the loved-up couple are already talking marriage. When asked if he could pop the question this year, Ricky replied: "You'll have to wait and see."
"I want two boys, then a girl," he continued.
Marnie added: "Obviously it's really early for that and we're too young right now, but we've spoken about it... And our little boy is going to be called Elijah."
We can't wait to see what he does next.
