TOWIE: Jessica Wright and Ricky Rayment deny engagement!
The Only Way Is Essex stars Jessica Wright and Ricky Rayment have sparked a torrent of speculation after Jessica was seen returning from their Florida holiday this morning, wearing what looked like a rather sparkly engagement ring!
Fans of the hit ITV2 reality show will know how ever since getting together last year, Jess and Ricky have endured what can only be described as a turbulent relationship at best, with both having been caught out sending in appropriate texts to members of the opposite sex behind each other’s back.
The new jewellery Jessica was seen sporting certainly set tongues wagging, which jess did nothing to defuse when she showed off the ring at Gatwick airport whilst stroking Ricky’s face.
However, since the rumour mill went into overdrive the happy couple have insisted that they have no plans to walk up the aisle just yet, and that the ring was merely a present from Ricky and not an offer of marriage!
A representative of the couple told the MailOnline: “Jess informs me the ring is a present from Ricky but it is not an engagement ring and he hasn’t proposed.”
This is probably a wise move as the pair seemed far from settled at the end of the last series when Jessica called time on their relationship telling Ricky: “I think we’re in different places. I wanted a relationship, but I didn’t want this relationship.
“I thought I was ready but I’m not mentally ready to be there all the time. I don’t think I’m ready for that.”
