BBUK's Hughie Maughan and Ryan Ruckledge get matching tattoos after engagement


Big Brother 2016 housemates Ryan Ruckledge and Hughie Maughan have got matching tattoos.

The couple got the inkings after they announced their engagement last month.

Former X Factor contestant Ryan has had the famous BBUK eye added to the back of his neck following this summer's show.

Ryan showed off his new inking on Instagram, writing alongside the snap: "It took me eight years to get into that Big Brother house but was always a dream for me to go on that show and what an amazing experience it was."


He added: "met some amazing friends in that house and an amazing guy so thought why not get the big brother eye tattooed on me to remember the most memorable summer of my life!"

Meanwhile, Hughie yesterday showed off his own work with the same eye logo on his arm.

"tattoo on my forearm to mark the best summer ever and experience of my life when I met Ryan and friends for life on the best BigBrother ever," he tweeted.

It's not Ryan's first BB themed tattoo having previously had fellow housemate Hughie Maughan's name added to his chest.

In September the guys announced they were engaged, two months following this summer's Big Brother UK.

The couple took to Twitter to announce the news.

"So the cats out the bag me and @hughie_maughan are officially engaged! So happy and can't wait for the future #biggaygypsywedding ??" Ryan tweeted.

Hughie added: "FINALLY me and ryan can announce that we are officially ENGAGED! We are so happy and everythin feels right, huge hi five 2 the doubters"

Their fellow BBUK housemates were quick with their congratulations, as Ryan invited Georgina Leigh Cantwell and Lateysha Grace to be bridesmaids.

"literally can't wait, CONGRATS! You two are meant to be xxxxx," Georgina added
