JOHN Noble is a Newcastle businessman, who is set to marry a very smitten Vicky Pattison.
He has certainly got the seal of approval from the Geordie reality star, who described him as "a man not a fan" – but who is John? Here's all you need to know…
Like 2014’s queen of the jungle, John hails from the North and lives in Newcastle.
He is a businessman involved with the Toon-based clothing retailer ‘Little And Large’, which provides tailor-made attire based on just two sizes (little and large, if you hadn’t guessed).
No stranger to celebrity, he counts Love Island’s Sophie Gradon and Vicky’s former Geordie Shore co-stars Scotty T and Gary ‘Gaz’ Beadle among his pals.
The hunk's ripped physique and regular Instagram snaps from the gym demonstrate he loves to work out, while his social media posts suggest he is an animal lover, who has a Great Dane dog.
It also seems he has a type – ex-girlfriend Rebecca Price, who John dated for a couple of years before they broke up in 2015, is the spitting image of his current flame.
The couple moved in together in October 2017.
John and Vicky's relationship came to attention when the pair could barely keep their hands off each other in the X-Factor audience before the I’m A Celeb winner appeared on Xtra Factor Live in October 2015.
However, they are thought to have a romantic history. A source revealed: “They used to date in the past and Vicky was obsessed with him.”
The I’m A Celebrity Extra host revealed their burgeoning romance in November 2016 by sharing a loved-up Instagram photo of the pair in Australia, captioned: “What’s meant to be will always find a way.”
Vicky and her new man were then snapped stepping out for lunch together for the first time after a romantic stroll on the Gold Coast.
The ex-Geordie Shore star, who had recently moved on from best friend and love interest Alex Cannon, looked completely smitten as she was photographed passionately kissing John on the beach.
Their relationship has moved on quickly, with the pair barely able to keep their hands off each other when they were spotted house hunting in Newcastle earlier this year.
And Vicky opened up about just how loved-up she is with her man when she appeared on Lorraine Kelly's ITV show.
She said: “He’s lovely. I struggled with my personal life and finding someone who was supportive of my career and successful in their own right as well.
“Finally I have that with John. He’s lovely and caring and strong. I’ve finally got a man not a fan.”
Vicky said she burst into tears the moment John got down on one knee with a stunning 3.6-carat marquise-cut diamond ring and was convinced he was going to break up with her before the shock proposal.
Telling all to OK! magazine, Vicky said: “I was spending a few days at John’s house, which is just outside Newcastle and surrounded by lovely countryside. One morning he suggested we take his dog Roxie out for a walk.
“After a while we stopped for a sit down on a bench overlooking some lovely scenery. I was playing with Roxie when she shook her head and got slobber all over my face. When I wiped it away, John was in front of me on one knee.
“I couldn’t believe it, I burst into tears. I said yes and then I looked at the ring and I was blown away, it was amazing.”
John said: "Marriage has pretty much always been on the cards for us. We’ve known from the start that what we have is forever."
The couple plan to wed next year and John says it'll be a big bash adding: "I’ve got a huge family – I’ll be inviting about 200 people – so it wouldn’t be fair to do it abroad."
It was initially thought they would get married in the summer of 2018 after Vicky's grandparents accidentally let slip she will tie the knot on their 65th anniversary.
But on January 16, 2018 Vicky has revealed she's postponed her July wedding to John for TWO years as she's "not ready to be a wife".
Speaking to the Daily Star, Vicky said: "We are putting the wedding back a year or two.
"We've been so stressed building our dream house and I haven't been able to dedicate enough time to the wedding as well.
"I don't want to rush it and to be honest I don't think I'm ready to be a wife yet."
