London, Nov 2 : TV personality Jennifer Ellison has admitted that she has fallen for a convicted drug dealer.
After dumping two-timing Tony Richardson, the ex-Brookside star says that she's so 'madly in love' with Robbie Tickle that she wants to marry him and have his kids.
Tickle, 29, was sentenced at Liverpool Crown Court in 2004 for possession of class A drugs with intent to supply, after being found with 10 wraps.
He met Hell's Kitchen winner Jen Ellison months ago when she was on a night out with friends.
Ellison and Tickle, who is a car valet boss and boxer, are now said to be on a romantic break in Mauritius.
"Rob would never do anything terrible to me-I've got no doubts about that," News of the World quoted Ellison, as saying.
"He's changed me as a person. I was so tense before, as Tony left me feeling insecure. But I'm so happy now.
"We haven't been together long, but when you fall madly in love with someone you don't need to wait five years to take it to the next level. We'll get married next year. I only want an intimate affair with family and friends," she added.
