A five-year plan? Lewis Bloor wants to put a RING on Marnie’s finger

Romances which blossom on the set of reality television programmes don't tend to have the best track record.

From Geordie Shore to TOWIE, when it comes to matters of the heart, reality stars don't seem to have the best luck.

However, it sounds like Lewis Bloor is determined to sidestep that curse by making a go of things with Geordie Shore's Marnie Simpson whom he met on Celebrity Big Brother this summer.

Appearing on Loose Women today, the reality star was, unsurprisingly, grilled about his new romance, and it sounds like it may just be the real thing.

"This is a new feeling for me and I feel a bit shy talking about it," he admitted. "I understand how people will look at it, it is very crazy but yeah she is great and I can't wait to see her."

"I do have a five-year plan and I'd love to be with Marnie at the end of it," he told the audience. "If I am with Marnie in five years time, I will be surprised if she doesn’t have a ring on her finger."

Determined for viewers to realise the depth of their relationship, Lewis reminded the public that they were inseparable while living in the house together.

"Being without Marnie is odd, even though you only saw a little bit, I figured it out we spent over 550 hours together in 23 days. It's the world's longest first date!"

Confirming that they are an official couple, Lewis dismissed the notion that their relationship might be moving too fast, saying: "I feel like in life someone who you’ve known for five weeks might have better intentions than someone you have known for five years."

"Time is a relative thing," he insisted. "We spent every waking minute together. If you don't know you've got feelings for someone in that time then you probably don't."

Does this mean we might one day see a Geordie/ TOWIE wedding?! What a time to be alive.
