Their dramatic on-off relationship played out in front of the cameras on Geordie Shore and Ex On The Beach.
But despite breaking up for good, Marty McKenna, 23, admitted he still had feelings for fellow reality star Chloe Ferry, 22, in a throwback Instagram snap shared on Sunday morning.
Despite later claiming it was an April Fool's joke, the black-and-white photo didn't raise a laugh for Chloe's current boyfriend Sam Gowland, who then challenged the former Geordie Shore cast member to charity boxing match.

Marty posted the monochromatic snap of himself and Chloe enjoying a drink together, with the caption: 'Good times miss this c**t'.
Clearly very protective of his girlfriend, Sam quickly lashed out at Marty for being 'muggy' and invited his love rival to 'act muggy to me face' in a boxing match.
Tweeting his reply to the snap, Sam wrote: 'Must be bored at home of still on the sesh ya w*** head trying to act all muggy online, come act muggy to me face in a charity boxing match all proceeds go to charity of our choice'.
