The TOWIE exes may be sending social media messages to one another following their split last year

Despite her split from TOWIE co-star Ricky Rayment late last year, Jessica Wright appears to have well and truly moved on and has been documenting her exciting single lifestyle on social networks for the last few months.

But The Only Way Is Essex star may have understandably been a bit uncomfortable seeing a picture of her former boyfriend receiving a smooch from her MTV Geordie Shore reality show rival Marnie Simpson at the National Television Awards after party at DSTRKT on Wednesday night.

Despite false reports suggesting Marnie may have cheated on her boyfriend, the Northern lass cleared up speculation stating: ‘Ricky Rayment and I kissed goodbye leaving a party in London. I’m single and a kissed a boy goodbye. Big deal!’.

And Jess posted a cryptic message on her Instagram account.

Alongside a snap of her looking uber glamorous but rather serious, the beautiful brunette captioned the shot, ‘Bitch don’t kill my vibe’.

Fans might recognise she was quoting a Kendrick Lamar song by the same name – but why she chose to use those words on Thursday when news of the snog made its way around the showbiz world, only Jess knows.

Before that Mark Wright‘s sister had been posting many a happy update on her Twitter account, detailing how excited she was about the opportunities she was being presented with at the moment.

Meanwhile, Ricky – who recently told us he had finally stopped checking Jess‘ social media activity – has been parading his naked body on the internet!

Perhaps Marnie caught a glimpse of his naughty bits before attending the NTAs bash and couldn’t wipe the Instagram image he had posted from her mind.

The 22-year-old was previously dating Dan Sloane while Ricky was in a relationship with Jess for two years.
