But here’s a précis of her life so far:

  • She’s the cousin of Geordie Shore’s Sophie Kasaei, joined the show in 2013, quit the show and then rejoined a few months later.
  • She was engaged to Joe McElderry lookalike and former TOWIE star Ricky Rayment last year after a whirlwind romance, but they split in August 2015. Marnie’s since called it the biggest mistake of her life, and Ricky came across as quite horrid – he allegedly called her a ‘slag about 500- times’, which isn’t nice at all.
  • Marnie also doesn’t like Gaz Beadle FYI. Team Charlotte all the way, here.


  • Earlier this year, Marnie came out as bisexual, and she was rumoured to be dating her Geordie Shore co-star Aaron Chalmers, but insists she’s definitely now single.
  • She got involved with some wrong’uns when she was 17 and tried to stage a fraudulent minibus crash to make money, as if that’s a thing. Obviously the law won and she got a 12 month community supervision order and 150 hours of community service. Thus, crime does not pay so don’t get involved in insurance scams, kids.
  • She’s got a clothing range at a website called Forever Modo.


  • She worked in a bar before she was famous.
  • She was a runner up in the 2012 Miss Newcastle competition.
  • She’s had a boob job and a nose job.
  • She was the June cover star of LGBT magazine Diva.
  • Marnie’s rumoured gf of earlier this year, Natalie Phillips, was the ex of Love Island’s Sophie Gradon.
