“It was brought to our attention last night that someone has been using @ercan_ram’s pics to catfish people on tinder,” Vicky began the caption of the image. “I mean firstly can I just say we’re flattered, I’ve always known he was a lovely bit of kit so people coveting his visage is not really a shock to me.”

“Secondly, FYI ladies, gents or any interested parties- this is unfortunately not the real deal,” [sic] revealed Vicky. “I have finally found myself a lovely, faithful man thank the LORD…”

The brunette beauty, who recently hinted at marriage plans as she shared snaps of her dream wedding, went on to apologise to innocent users of the dating app who had been fooled by the fake account.

“I’m sorry if you have been entertaining this person on the hopes of one day meeting this stud,” she penned. “I know it must be a bag of s***e trying to meet someone during the panny d- so please don’t waste anymore time on this butthole.” [sic]

“And finally, Gary? Just brilliant… a nice traditional Turkish Cypriot name," she continued.

“I hope you all have lovely weekends,” Vicky gushed. “Except you Gaz.. you sly old dog you.”

Vicky fell for former TOWIE star Ercan in 2018 and they celebrated their second anniversary in December.

Starting off the comments on the social media post was Vicky’s best friend and First Time Mum star, Ferne McCanne.

“I am dying,” she wrote. “GARY LAUGHING OUT LOUD. To every part of your caption”

Former Love Islander Rykard Jenkins sent words of approval saying: “Gary the Electrician” with clapping emojis.

Fans of Vicky’s found the post which received 70,000 likes hysterical leaving tons of cry laughing emojis.

“Just why?!” one Instagrammer laughed. “Gary? No ones been called christened Gary since 1985. Fact.”

While another inquisitive follower questioned Ercan’s sincerity in the situation.

“How do you know it’s not your boyfriend using a different name?” she asked.

However, unphased Vicky hit back sarcastically saying: “Omg you’re right… he must be cheating on me…” [sic]
