Former Geordie Shore star Marnie Simpson has reportedly called off her upcoming wedding to fiancé Casey Johnson amid ongoing Covid restrictions.

The mum of one is thought to have postponed the entire thing until next year over fears lockdown measures wouldn’t be lifted in time for her August extravaganza.

A source said, “Marnie wanted a really relaxed and fun wedding where people can enjoy themselves, and as it stands this wouldn’t be the case.

“She feels she won’t be able to enjoy it as there are certain restrictions currently in place, such as only the bride and groom being able to dance.”

Speaking to new! magazine the insider continued, “She had already booked the venue, started organising her wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, cakes and flowers. But with the Covid restrictions not being lifted in time, she’s decided to put it off until next year.”

Gary Beadle

Marns joined the Geordie Shore house in 2013 claiming to be a "natural beauty" with "real boobs" and "real hair" and quickly caught the eye of the boys - including one Gary Beadle. Early flirtations between them saw Marnie make an enemy of OG Charlotte Crosby (who was in love with Gaz) but their fling was short lived and Marnie quickly moved onto...

Scotty T

Scott "Scotty T" Timlin, who has since revealed to heat that he would have loved to have made a go of things with her. The couple enjoyed some drunk tash-ons during her early days but it turned out to be just flanter, with Scott always honouring the age old adage, bros before hoes.

Ricky Rayment

Marns and TOWIE's Ricky Rayment got together when Ricky was fresh out of his relationship with Jess Wright after meeting at an awards ceremony in January 2015. Ricky then flew out to Majorca in June the same year, where Marnie and the rest of the G Shore crew were filming, to PROPOSE. Cue VERY awkward pause while Marnie considered his proposal, with basically the rest of the reality TV world weighing in.

Aaron Chalmers

Despite Ricky insisting he and Marnie were "meant to be together", it was fellow Geordie Shore co-star Aaron Chalmers we had really high hopes for. Marnie and Aaron on'd-and-off'd for three years while they were both on the show, before he eventually professed his love for her in 2016.

Lewis Bloor

HOW COULD YOU, MARNIE? After Aaron's heartfelt declaration, Marnie entered the 2016 Celebrity Big Brother house where she quickly fell for the charms of another TOWIE lad, Lewis Bloor. The new couple got hot and heavy on screen, with Marnie claiming to have had "the most romantic shower of my life" (be warned: link contains penis), but things quickly turned sour on the outside world when Lewis cheated on her, twice.

Casey Johnson

In 2017, Marnie signed up to a one-off MTV series Single AF, alongside such single pringles as drag star Courtney Act and John and/or Edward, of The X Factor fame. It was there she met and fell in love with Stereo Kicks' Casey Johnson. The rest, they say, is history.

Earlier this year Marnie told of how she’d already had to revise her wedding plans due to the pandemic, abandoning her hopes of getting married abroad.

“Originally, I wanted to get married abroad, but because of coronavirus I can’t do that,” she told the same publication. “This has that holiday feel even though I’m in the UK. I’m going to be getting married outside with a very nice sea view, which is what I wanted.”

Marnie isn’t the only former Geordie whose wedding plans have been disrupted, with Holly Hagan’s Ibiza wedding getting postponed at the last minute back in May.

Holly had every hope her Ibiza wedding to footballer Jacob Blyth would still go ahead this summer – despite having to cancel her honeymoon a few weeks before.

She told Closer back in February, “We were going to island hop in Greece, but I don’t think travelling from place to place will be an option. But we still have the wedding. My planner lives in Ibiza and, at the moment, she doesn’t seem worried.”
