After Ricky Rayment quit TOWIE and popped the question to the Geordie Shore star, his ex Jess Wright doesn't have high hopes that it'll go the distance

Since Jessica Wright’s bitter split with Ricky Rayment was played out for all to see on TOWIE in November, Jess hasn’t looked back. Looking as glamorous as ever as she stepped out last week at the Magic Mike XXL premiere, Jess appeared unfazed by the news that Ricky, 24, had popped the question to 23-year-old Geordie Shore star Marnie Simpson after six months of dating.

In fact, friends of Jess, 29, tell Now that she finds the entire situation a joke and firmly believes it’s a disaster waiting to happen. A source reveals: ‘Jess and the rest of the Wright family think it’s hilarious. The way they see it, Ricky’s a joke.

‘He’s been flaunting his romance with Marnie in Jess’s face on social media and now he’s done this. She’s been saying: ‘Good luck to him!’ laughing her head off, telling friends it’s never going to last and that Ricky doesn’t have a clue what he wants,’ says our source.

‘At first Jess was a bit shocked by the news ­ after all, Ricky had told Jess he was in love with her and wanted to marry her and have kids ­ and look how that turned out. Just seven months later, he’s telling someone else the same thing. Jess knows that she and Ricky weren’t right, but it’s
still a pretty cruel blow that he’s  moved on so quickly.’

Ricky popped the question last month inthe Geordie Shore house and Marnie ‘immediately said yes’, according to friends of the couple.

They claimed the former TOWIE star had ‘never been happier’.

‘It might come across that things are moving a little too quickly…but Ricky believes he’s met the girl of his dreams. Jess is a distant memory,’ the friend said.

But Jess, ­ who dated Ricky for two years before their split, ­ is refusing to let his engagement get her down, and has been taking revenge with her own hot new romances. After a brief fling with TOWIE’s Dan Edgar, she’s now getting flirty with show newbie Peter Wicks. Ooh-er!
