And we have our fingers crossed...

We bloody love a cross-reality show romance, so we’ve obviously been following Vicky Pattison and Mario Falcone’s with beady eyes…

We were therefore pretty gutted to hear that the Geordie Shore-TOWIE union is offish off the cards when Mario stated last week that the two were ‘just good friends’

But the Geordie girl with a VIP edge/ current reigning queen of the jungle may not have completely ruled out the possibility for romance in the future.

Speaking to OK! Online, she said: ‘If he happens to be single in a year’s time when things have slowed down, I’ll give it a go.’

But don’t get too excited – she was also pretty adamant that the two really are just good friends for now.

She said: ‘He’s a lovely lad. He will make someone a brilliant husband one day. I mean that with all my heart but I don’t think that’s me.

‘I’m really busy and unfortunately my career takes precedent at the moment… He deserves someone who can give him some more time.’

Vicky shocked Loose Women viewers last week when she confessed her love for best pal, Big Brother housemate, and perfectly torso-d Alex Cannon. She told panellists Coleen Nolan, Sherrie Hewson and Janet Street-Porter: ‘I’ve got a best friend, a boy. We’ve been friends for about a year and a half. It grew to something more. I think I’m head over heels in love with him.’

Erm… Definite spanner in the Mario Falcone works then….
