Who is John Noble? Everything you need to know about Vicky Pattison’s fiance
Vicky Pattison is engaged to her long-term boyfriend John Noble after accepting a surprise proposal from him.
The ex-Geordie Shore star burst into tears when John pulled out a 3.6-carat diamond ring while the couple were out walking his dog.
It’s not clear when they’ll tie the knot, but fans are expecting it to happen in 2018.
Yet, while we certainly know plenty about Miss Patttison, who exactly is her husband-to-be? Here’s our guide to everything you need to know…
He’s a fellow Geordie
Having appeared on Geordie Shore, Vicky’s provenance is certainly a big part of her character.
So it makes perfect sense that the man she’ll marry is also a fellow northerner who hails from the same city: Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, of course.
This means they’ll likely have the same cultural values and a similar sense of humour, which means they’ll enjoy similar social lives.
It’ll also means their respective families will be within close proximity, suggesting the couple will probably have a local ceremony in the area where they grew up.
He’s a businessman
Although Vicky is a businesswoman in her own right, John is also a self-made man.
He runs a clothing retailer called ‘Little And Large’, which – as the name suggests – claims to cater for all sizes by stocking only two, big and small.
“The clothes are manufactured locally by hand, using one of Newcastle’s top seamstresses,” the company website reads.
“We only use local suppliers to ensure the best quality at all times, as well as supporting the local community.”
He’s no stranger to the gym
Anybody who follows the hunk’s Instagram profile will now that John and Vicky share a common love of exercise.
The Geordie businessman likes to work out and has a killer body to show for it.
He regularly posts pictures of his ripped chest on social media and even managed to squeeze in regular gym sessions while he was in Australia for Vicky’s stint in the jungle.
He’s an animal lover
Although he may look like a man with no visible soft side, he has a pet pooch whom he adores.
Handsome John, 31, regularly posts pictures of the Great Dane on Instagram and is said to be protective of his canine companion, even refusing to let dog-walkers near it.
Moreover, Vicky and John might have to make room for one more in the marital bed – the dog is often spotted cosying up to John as he sleeps.

They’ve known each other for years
The pair are both key members of the Newcastle social scene, with John counting Vicky’s former Geordie Shore co-stars Gary ‘Gaz’ Beadle and Scott Timlin as friends.
But they also had a brief fling ten years ago.
“I used to go out with him when I was about 20, so we were going out then,” she told Celebrity Juice, earlier this year.
“I thought he was very good looking, but a little bit of a t****r, so we broke up, split up amicably, he grew up into a very nice man and then we bumped into each other last year on a train.”
He’s met Vicky’s family
John has definitely met the family, which will be important to a family lass like Vicki who previously said: “To me, my family is everything”.
It also looks like John has been given the seal of approval.
He’s met her sister Laura when Vicky and John joined her for a double date, and he’s so close with Vicky’s mum Carol he flew out with her to Australia.
