CBB's Marnie Simpson and Lewis Bloor are far from over as she moves to Essex

Celebrity Big Brother 2016

Celebrity Big Brother's Marnie Simpson and Lewis Bloor have proved the rumours wrong.

The loved up reality duo met in the CBB house and insisted it wasn't just a show for the cameras.

But there were claims last month that it was all over between the pair.

Speaking in Star magazine, Marnie confessed things between her and Louis weren't going as she had hoped, saying the relationship was "really hard" now the couple were outside the Celebrity Big Brother house.

The Geordie Shore star wrote in her weekly column: "I want things to be amazing as they were on CBB, but I was being unrealistic because it's so different on the outside.

"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."

However far from splitting, Marnie and Lewis are set to get closer than ever.

Quite literally.

Marnie has revealed she's planning on moving to Essex, saying this week: "It will be nice to be close to Lewis and I've always wanted to move down south. Essex is a good location."

While Marnie and Lewis won't be living together just yet, the pair did enjoy a holiday to Spain recently.

"We finally found a weekend when we could both get away, so we booked it last minute," Marnie explained. "It was nice to escape and relax for a few days, just the two of us.

"It's just what I needed."

She added: "Things are still going really well between me and Louis."
