The Geordie girl's speaking her mind

For many, it’s an interesting thing to see an ex move on with someone new. And it’s quite another to see an ex move on while going through a break-up of your own.

For Marnie Simpson, this should be all too familiar, as her former Geordie Shore fling partner Aaron Chalmers has been dating former TOWIE star Lauren Pope… while she recovers from her recent split from Lewis Bloor.

Ever outspoken, Marnie’s now given her opinion on the situation – and actually, she seems to be rooting for them!

Writing in a recent column, Marnie explains that after a lovely Christmas, she plans to take the entire month of January off, to recuperate. Since she fails to mention her split, it seems as if it was written before the breakup. However, she does manage to discuss Aaron’s new love life – and the fact that she and Lauren have similar tastes in men…

‘I can’t believe my ex Aaron Chalmers is dating Lauren Pope!’ she began. ‘I wouldn’t have put them together and it’s weird that she’s one of Lewis’ exes.’

Awkward, more like! However, it seems as if Marnie has no hard feelings towards the romance – and suggests that the fact that Lauren’s a little bit older could be just what Aaron needs. She continues in Star magazine:

‘She’s a bit older, which could be good for him. I wish them all the luck in the world. I want Aaron to be happy and, who knows, she could be The One.’


Aaron, 29, and 34-year-old Lauren were first linked in December, after they were spotted getting close at festive date hotspot, Winter Wonderland in London’s Hyde Park.

According to an onlooker speaking to The Sun, it seems as if they were really enjoying each other’s company: ‘It was a very romantic date, they were holding hands through out. They looked completely loved up and really enjoyed the day out.’

Cute! Here’s hoping Marnie can be just as happy – with, or without a partner.
