Marco Pierre White Jr. claims he dumped fiancée

Marco Pierre White Jr. has claimed he dumped his fiancée.

The former 'Big Brother' star recently split from his lover Kim Melville-Smith but, despite feeling guilty about his on-screen raunchy antics with his fellow housemate Laura Carter, he is adamant he was the one who called time on the romance.

Speaking on Monday night's (20.06.16) 'Big Brother's Bit On The Side', Marco told host Rylan Clark-Neal: "I spoke to Kim [earlier this morning]. Basically, I just said I can't be with someone who chooses to sell stories about me.

"Even though she denied it, she admitted to selling one, and it's affected my family growing up - my mother selling stories about me - and I don't really want to be around it anymore."

The 21-year-old model - who is the son of celebrity chef Marco Pierre White - previously admitted that they'd broken off their engagement over his unfaithful behaviour in the house, despite claiming Kim had given him a "hall pass."

In a statement, 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 too 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."

However, it seems Marco has had a change of heart over the past few weeks as just last month he said he couldn't wait to marry Kim and start a family with her.
