Channel 5 viewers have been watching the TOWIE star get closer and closer to the Geordie Shore lady over the past few weeks, before he lost the public vote and was removed from the house – and his new missus – as part of a double eviction on Friday night.

His relationship was heavily scrutinised by both the public and his fellow housemates, so it was always going to be something that he was grilled on after his exit from the house.

Sure enough, the Loose Women panel were up for the job.

The 26-year-old wasted no time in confirming that he is in it for the long haul with Marnie, who’s already got the approval of his mum following a quick visit to the house.

He told the panel, ‘If we are still together in five years time, I would be surprised if she didn’t have a ring on her finger.’

Ooh.

While he was in the house, there was one picture in particular that kept being shared on social media, with many believing it ‘proved’ that his relationship with Marnie was ‘fake’.

Talking about the snap, he admitted: ‘Those pap pics were a bit unfortunate.

‘She was with Ricky [Rayment] at the time and he called me and asked if we went home together.

‘But we had gone from one work event to another in a taxi for and I hadn’t seen her since. It’s been nice getting to know her.’

He later added: ‘100% we are girlfriend and boyfriend.’

So, that’s that then folks.

Love is in the air. And we’re so happy.
