Celebrity Big Brother’s Marnie Simpson is moving to Essex to be closer to Lewis Bloor
Celebrity Big Brother couple Marnie Simpson and Lewis Bloor are apparently still going strong, as Simpson plans to move to Essex.
The stars of reality television shows Geordie Shore and TOWIE hit things off in the CBB house this year and it was not long before the pair made things official, claiming to be completely smitten with one another on the show.
Unsure of whether this was just another Big Brother showmance, fans were doubtful as to whether the reality duo would survive once the programme was over. Last month, it seemed the doubters might have been right when claims surfaced that it was all over between Simpson and Bloor.
Speaking in her weekly column for Star magazine, Simpson admitted that the relationship wasn’t going as she had hoped, saying things were “really hard” since the two of them were outside the Celebrity Big Brother house.
She wrote: “Things are still going well between me and Lewis, but I find our relationship really hard, if I’m honest.”
“I want things to be as amazing as they were on CBB, but I was being unrealistic because it’s so different on the outside.”
She continued: “I want to keep things private because I don’t want to give people a reason to talk about us. I already get tweets when he’s doing PAs. It’s so stressful.”
Yet, it seems the couple have since turned things around and are now better than ever. Simpson has announced her plans to move to Essex this week. The Essex boy and Geordie lass will not be sharing a house just yet, but it looks like things could be heading in that direction for the loved up pair. She said: “It will be nice to be close to Lewis and I’ve always wanted to move down south. Essex is a good location.”
Simpson also talked about the couple’s recent trip to Spain: “We finally found a weekend when we could both get away, so we booked it last minute. It was nice to escape and relax for a few days, just the two of us.”
“It’s just what I needed.”
She concluded: “Things are still going really well between me and Lewis.”
It sounds like the holiday has put the pair back on track! Marnie posted a snap on Instagram from Barcelona, and they certainly did look like a very happy couple:
Will things continue to be smooth sailing once they are together in Essex? Or could there be more drama on the horizon?
