Despite making her name in Newcastle as part of MTV’s Geordie Shore, Marnie Simpson is planning a move to TOWIE land so she can be close to new love Lewis Bloor.
In a recent interview with Star magazine, the 24-year-old reality star confessed that she’s hoping to buy a house in Essex where she says “it will be nice to be close to Lewis”, who she met while filming Celebrity Big Brother this summer.
The controversial star told the mag: “I'm meeting a mortgage adviser soon because I'm thinking of buying my first house…I've always wanted to move down south. Essex is a good location.”
And while you might think Marnie would happily become neighbours with her former co-star Vicky Pattison, the outspoken brunette says she hopes to dodge the Loose Women panellist when she moves.
“I know Vicky lives there now,” she said. “But it's a big place and I doubt that we'll cross paths. We certainly won't be hanging out as friends.”
Earlier this year, Marnie confessed that Vicky is the only ex Geordie Shore housemate who she has no contact with.
In her Star magazine column, she wrote: “I still speak to all the ex Geordie Shore cast members apart from one – Vicky Pattison!”
“We do NOT like each other, so it was always clear we wouldn't stay in touch.”
So, Vicky should not expect you for tea?
