Opening up about his role in Dangerous Minds, he said: “It’s my first movie, so it was scary at first, but fun once I got into it.

“I’ve done drama since I was young so when I left TOWIE I wanted to go into acting.”

Is he wanting to take on Hollywood? “There’s no point in living without dreams so I won’t say, ‘No I am never going to make it there’, he said.

“I don’t expect to though!”

Ricky was known for his long-term relationship with Towie star Jess Wright, and later became engaged to Geordie Shore’s Marnie Simpson.

Previously opening up about his split from Marnie, he said: “She’d get really drunk and then in my mind I’d be like, she could be getting up to anything”‘.

“She seems to think it’s okay to neck on with her girl mates. But in a way, it’s like cheating. I wasn’t that keen on her when she went out.”
