Wayne Linker has revealed Chloe Ferry is moving to Ibiza this summer so they can spend time together.
The 59-year-old businessman, who owns a host of clubs on the island, said he is looking forward to the former Geordie Shore star, 25, jetting over.
It comes just months after the Celebs Go Dating pair sent tongues wagging when Wayne sparked engagement rumours as Chloe showed off a ring in a snap, with him later revealing it was a prank.
Summer lovin’: Chloe Ferry is moving to Ibiza with Wayne Lineker. The former Geordie Shore star, 25, and the 59-year-old businessman are looking forward to spending more time together
In an interview with The Sun, Wayne said: ‘We’re going to spend a bit of time together. We do like each other, but we’re not getting engaged, let’s put it that way.’
‘Chloe and I are good friends. We’ve got an arrangement, but what she does, she’s good to do that, and what I do, I’m good to do that.’
He added: ‘But we still see each other, and we’ll see what happens in the future. She’s a good girl Chlo. I love her to bits.’
Wayne revealed: ‘We’re going to spend a bit of time together. We do like each other, but we’re not getting engaged, let’s put it that way’
Wayne previously explained his ideal woman would not be older than 40 and said he has never dated a woman over the age of 30.
He said: ‘Finding women that age is very difficult. I don’t spend any time with 45, 50 or 60-year-old women. I never see them.
‘My business is in nightclubs. They’re not on Instagram, and I end up chatting to 30 and 40-year-olds. It’s not illegal.’
The pair grew close while filming Celebs Go Dating, and in March, Wayne claimed that he ‘is seeing’ co-star Chloe.
He said the pair are going to ‘see what happens’ when Chloe spends the summer in Ibiza where Wayne owns his bar.
The couple sparked engagement rumours before admitting their stunt was a wind up and they had staged their post-proposal photo.
Appearing on FUBAR Radio with host TOWIE’s Bobby Norris, Wayne was asked who his celebrity crush was, responding: ‘Oh, that’s Chloe [Ferry] obviously!’
TOWIE star Bobby then said: ‘Miss Ferry. I saw all about this engagement! How did it come about Wayne?’
Club owner Wayne went on to explain: ‘Me and Chloe just have a laugh all the time. We’re in the mansion and she had a wedding ring.
‘She went, “Come on, Wayne, let’s pretend we’re getting married”. And we took all the pictures and everything and we didn’t end up doing it, we just forgot about it.
‘And she phoned me up last week. Because, I mean, we are seeing each other a little bit and having a bit of flirtatious banter and we’ll see what happens in the summer.
‘But she said, “Come on let’s post it! Let’s have a laugh!” I said, “You know it’s going to go viral don’t you?” She went, “Yeah of course I do!”
Crush: Appearing on FUBAR Radio with host TOWIE’s Bobby Norris, Wayne was asked who his celebrity crush was, responding: ‘Oh, that’s Chloe [Ferry] obviously!’
‘But yeah, me and Chloe are really tight. She came on my podcast last week, No Excuse for Abuse, and she was amazing you know. But yeah, we’re really really close and she’s coming to Ibiza for the summer. And so, we’ll see what happens. ‘
Bobby then asked: ‘So Wayne, when you say ‘”seeing each other”, what? Romantically?’
To which Wayne replied: ‘We’re always flirting, Bobby.’
In February, Wayne wanted to trick his friends and Celebs Go Dating fans into thinking he was set to wed the Geordie Shore star, who is 32 years his junior.
He added of Chloe: ‘We’re really really close and she’s coming to Ibiza for the summer’
A friend of the star claims Wayne fessed up when they contacted him to congratulate him on his engagement news.
They told the Sun: ‘Wayne is a real joker and this is exactly his kind of humour. He’s told people it was just a wind up over text. He and Chloe are definitely not engaged.’
The friend added: ‘They got on really well when they met in Celebs Go Dating and will be mates for life.’
Wayne and Chloe left Celebs Go Dating fans baffled after claiming they had got engaged during the show.
They posed for a loved-up Instagram snap from the E4 show mansion, with Chloe showing off a huge dazzling diamond ring.
Wayne captioned the shot: ‘She said YES! Love you @chloegshore1’.
The shock claims left many fans scratching their heads, with most claiming the post ‘has to be a joke’.
Wayne wrapped his arm around Chloe, who held up her hand to show off the sparkling ring.
Chloe replied to the post: ‘Love you’.
While many of Wayne’s celebrity pals rushed to congratulate the pair, many followers took to the comment section saying they thought the whole thing was a hoax.
