Ricky Rayment has vehemently denied claims made by an X Factor hopeful that he slept with her behind girlfriend Jess Wright's back.

TOWIE favourite Ricky was quick to express his fury at what he described as a "bulls**t" story via Twitter, saying his legal team were looking into it.

X Factor contestant Lottie Lou was quoted recently claiming she bedded Ricky weeks into his relationship with Jess.

She's said to have told The Sun: "I didn't really know he was with Jess. I'd seen them on TV but they say that on TOWIE scenes are created for the show. So I didn't know if they were together or if it was just for TV."

But Ricky has insisted this isn't true.

Ricky branded the singer "fame hungry" and a "vile desperate piece of scum" in a flurry of tweets and went as far as to say he wouldn't "touch [her] with a bargepole."

A statement from Ricky's agent on his behalf to Daily Star Online added: "I would like to confirm that I've never had an affair or in fact slept with this fantasist, this story is entirely false and untrue."

Lottie Lou has not yet responded.

Ricky's girlfriend, Jess, meanwhile, isn't letting the drama get to her. This morning, she showed everyone that she and Ricky are blissfully happy together by posting a sweet photo of them on a recent family holiday to Spain.
