After giving an awkward laugh, she coyly responded: ‘I’ve not met him no. He seems really nice but I can’t spill the beans on my best friend I’m afraid.’

Well, it might not be a confirmation, but it’s certainly not a denial either…

Meanwhile, 25-year-old Chris seems to have temporarily escaped the rumours as he’s now jetted out of the country on a boys’ holiday to Barbados.

Speaking ahead of his sun-soaked trip, the reality star told The Sun: ‘I’m off to Barbados on holiday, which will be nice to get a few days away.

‘It’s my first proper holiday since Love Island where I’ve been able to go away and not actually work. It’ll be so nice.’

But when he was asked about his relationship status, Chris gave much less away simply replying: ‘It’s a tough one. I’m just enjoying what I’m doing.

‘There’s no updates, nothing you haven’t seen. I’m just happy with myself at the minute.’ Hmm…

Before he was pictured hanging out with Little Mix’s Jesy, Chris previously dated fellow Love Island star Olivia Attwood following their stint on the ITV2 show.

While Essex babe Jesy also has a history of getting cosy with men in the public eye as she was previously linked to TOWIE star Chris Clark and recently split from former rapper Harry James.
