Ricky Rayment cheated with X Factor contestant
Rickey Rayment cheated on his fellow TOWIE star girlfriend Jessica Wright with current 'X Factor' hopeful Lottie Lou
'X Factor' hopeful Lottie Lou has revealed it was her that 'The Only Way Is Essex' star Ricky Rayment cheated on girlfriend Jess Wright with.
The talent show hopeful - who appeared on yesterday's (14.09.14) arena auditions phase of the ITV talent show - has confessed it was her Ricky was unfaithful to Jess, 29, with when the couple first got together.
The Essex-born brunette told The Sun newspaper: "I was talking to Ricky when he was first with Jess and things started to happen between us.
"I didn't really know he was with Jess. I'd seen them on TV but they say that on TOWIE scenes are created for the show.
"So I didn't know if they were together or it was just for TV.
"We started to get to know each other better and things went from there.
"But then I told Jess and things got nasty. Jess wasn't livid. She just wanted the truth. Ricky was the one getting aggressive and didn't want us two talking to each other about it. He wanted to keep us apart. There's definitely a guilty conscience in there."
Although Jess took Ricky back following the scandal just over a month later, Lottie fears their romance could once again be shaken up after she was offered the chance to appear alongside the couple on the ITV2 reality TV show.
Despite turning down the initial offer of a part from series' bosses, Lottie hasn't ruled out being on the show altogether if her 'X Factor' bid fails this year.
She said: "I was offered it before but I was in a very different place. I think I could handle it now but I'd have to think about it very carefully."
