Marco Pierre White Jr and Kim Melville-Smith call off engagement

Marco Pierre White Jr has confirmed he has split from Kim Melville-Smith.

The 'Big Brother' star - who got intimate with housemate Laura Carter during his time on the show despite being engaged to Kim - says the couple are just planning to be "friends" for the meantime but insists he does feel "guilty" about what happened with Laura.

He said: "The arrangement we had I was given a hall pass for 'Big Brother'. I was given a free pass to do anything I wanted ... Maybe I did push it to far. I'm in contact with her now. We'll see how it goes. Just be friends for the moment.

"I think Kim's a great person. I don't regret what I did. I shouldn't have done what I did. I don't regret anything to do with Laura. I feel guilty. I feel bad. I knew Kim was watching. In the Big Brother house, you do forget sometimes."

And the 21-year-old model admits things "moved so fast" with Kim, who he only dated for a few months before they decided to get married.

He added: "Yes I do [get engaged too fast]. I don't know why I keep doing it. It moved so fast with Kim. She's an amazing person. What I had with her I haven't had with a lot of other people."

Meanwhile, Marco Jr. - who was evicted from the house on Friday evening (17.06.16) - has been in touch with his father, celebrity chef Marco Pierre White, since exiting the famous abode and revealed he is a "bit upset" about some of the things he's been saying during his time on the show.

Speaking on ITV's This Morning, he added: "He was a bit upset about some of things I've mentioned on the show but he is proud of me. [It was talking about] my partying and behaviour on the outside world. He's aware of them, but he choose to ignore it. I let him down a bit. I feel bad for my sister [Mirabelle]."
