Tension didn't help Jorgie Porter's DOI comeback

Poor Jorgie Porter and her DOI all-stars partner Sylvain Longchambon were the first couple to be booted off the show last night after reportedly struggling to work up any chemistry.

We hear the actress, known for her role in Hollyoaks, felt torn by her loyalty for BFF and co-star Jennifer Metcalfe, famously dumped by Sylvain for Corrie‘s Samia Ghadie.

‘Of course it’s difficult,’ our insider revealed last week. ‘Jorgie doesn’t want to upset Jen, but she’s a pro and is trying her best to get on with it, as she always does.’

Sylvain, 33, started dating Jen in 2011 after they were paired on DOI – but he gave her the boot in December 2012 after he fell for Samia, 31, in the same way.

At the time, Jennifer, 30, said: ‘It’s like death. I felt gutted. It was the worst Christmas ever.’

Although Jorgie, 26, knew Sylvain from her time on the show in 2012 – she and her actor boyf James Atherton had even been on double dates with him while he was with Jen – it’s still frosty between Team Jen and Team Samia.

Samia was also said to be miffed about her beau being paired with Jen‘s BFF as she thought it was done to get more press for the show.
