Ercan Ramadan is known for being Vicky Pattison’s beau, and officially sealed the deal by getting down on one knee and popping the Geordie Shore star the BIG question. Another huge thing was that stunning rock…
The couple have shared with followers insights into their romance since they first got together, and have made us incredibly jealous by posting snaps of their sunny Dubai holiday recently.
What could make their holiday better?! An engagement, of course. When fans saw the ring on Vicky’s finger, they began questioning how Ercan afforded the jewellery piece, as well as his age.

How old is Ercan Ramadan?
Born on September 6th 1983, Ercan is currently 38 years old. This makes him just four years older than Vicky, who came into the world on November 16th 1987. Their proposal comes shortly after she revealed she has frozen her eggs.
Ready for when her now-fiance is ready to have a baby, Vicky told Closer:
I see egg freezing as an empowering move – even if next year we decide to unfreeze or try naturally – this is a responsible move and one I can’t put off any longer. I’m 34, I don’t want the decisions I make now to be the cause for my unhappiness later down the line.
Vicky surprised Ercan with a seafront dinner at Copacabana Beach Dubrovnik for his 38th birthday, which was so romantic that several followers said it was the perfect proposal layout. He only went and done it five months later!
Vicky’s fiance was a builder
Before Ercan’s current job making money as an influencer, the Essex-born man was a former labourer and builder. He later joined the cast of The Only Way is Essex in 2016 for series 19.
He also has family ties to The Silk Road in Colchester, and once played for Gillingham F.C in his heyday!
Vicky’s engagement ring, which is an emerald cut platinum diamond, was made by Ian Gallacher Jewellers, a manufacturing jeweller and diamond merchant based in Stirling.
The solitaire-shaped jewellery rings range from £400 to £10,000 on the website, but the company’s Instagram page revealed a finished price of £29,950 for a new design. As Vicky’s was custom-made, it’s likely to be on the higher end.

Vicky and Ercan: Relationship timeline
Vicky and Ercan have been a couple for two years, since they first began dating in 2019. It came shortly after she split from John Noble, which led to the former MTV star reportedly calling things off as it was “moving too quickly”.
However, just a few weeks later, the duo were romantically linked again and appear to have been a strong couple ever since. In November 2020, during an interview with Closer, Vicky opened up about their relationship.
We’re probably closer than a couple who have been together for less than two years should be, but I’m really happy with him. I’m just pleased to see that the more I learn about him, the more I love him. I’m a very lucky bug.
They also live together at a home in Essex, which they purchased back in 2020. Vicky and Ercan are also new dog parents to a pet Labrador called Milo!
