This TOWIE star just shamed his ex with one VERY harsh tweet

TOWIE star Ricky Rayment showed he doesn't take criticism lying down with an especially harsh tweet today.

The reality star's ex, Jessica Wright, spoke on this week's episode of TOWIE about how Ricky had apparently "picked out a ring" before she unceremoniously dumped him last year.

Jessica split with Ricky after finding out he had been exchanging flirty direct messages with former X Factor contestant Lydia Lucy on Twitter.

However Jessica now claims that Ricky was smitten with her and even had plans to propose. "I heard that he'd picked out a ring for me and that he was going to propose. If he really is such a little kid then why would he have done all of that?," she said to friends on the most recent episode of the show.

It's clear Ricky, who is now seeing Geordie Shore's Marnie Simpson, wasn't happy with Jessica painting him as a lovesick singleton… and he responded in a big way on Twitter yesterday when OK! magazine tweeted a link to an article featuring Jessica's quotes.

Ricky was quick to reply to them in his defence, saying, "no I was just drunk at a wedding talking shit.. the same wedding I met Lydia lucy at."

Touché! We can't WAIT to see Jess' response to that!
