Jess insists that she and Ricky are 'very good and in love'

Jessica Wright says she and boyfriend Ricky Rayment are very happy together – despite what some TOWIE viewers may think.

Fans have told Jess, 28, to leave Ricky, 23, because he cheated at the start of their relationship and got angry when she celebrated her birthday with Chippendales strippers in Las Vegas.

But she insists they’re much more stable in real life.

‘The viewers only see a small sample of our relationship. Obviously they think it’s a stupid relationship. But they only see a tiny part,’ says Jess.

‘In general, me and Ricky are very good and in love. On paper, we’re probably not right for one another. But for some reason we just can’t get enough of each other.’

Jess and Ricky split after their trip to Sin City but soon got back together and hosted a Halloween party for their co-stars on Wednesday’s show.

They co-own dogs Bella and Blake but aren’t ready to expand their family any further just yet.

‘I’m too selfish for kids at the minute. And he’s very young. I’d never want to put that burden on him now. And I wouldn’t want to put it on myself,’ Jess tells the Daily Mirror.

‘But Ricky is very black and white. We had one conversation where he said: “I don’t care what people say, Jess. I know we’re going to be together forever.”‘
