Jorgie Porter's best friend has ruled out a romance between the Hollyoaks star and her I'm A Celebrity campmate George Shelley.

Ahead of their arrival in the jungle, Jorgie and George had been pinned as this year's I'm A Celeb couple. Show bosses had hoped for a romance to develop between the pair and as the two celebrities started growing closer, fans began to think it was on the cards.

However, news came to light that Jorgie is actually dating someone on the outside and now her BFF has revealed that she is so smitten, she won't be looking elsewhere.

Jorgie is reportedly dating England rugby player Luther Burrell and according to her pal, Gemma Pinkey, she is totally loved-up.

Speaking to The Daily Star, Gemma revealed Jorgie and Luther are definitely an item, and despite her currently being in Australia, Jorgie is so smitten with her new beau.

She said: "They've only been on a few dates and it's really early days, but I haven't seen her like that in a really long time and she won't mind me saying that."

Gemma went onto add that she has been in touch with Luther since Jorgie landed in Oz and he told her he has been tuning in to see how the 27-year-old is coping with jungle life.

"We've exchanged a couple of texts," she added. "I think he's been watching"

Jorgie's friend Gemma's comments come after Andi Peters revealed Jorgie is not single during his appearance on spinoff show I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Now!.

After seeing George strike up a close friendship with the blonde beauty and Spencer Matthews (who has now left the jungle) admit he has the hots for Jorgie, Andi said: "They are all after Jorgie but I know the bloke who she is stepping out with in the UK at the moment."

"He's an England rugby player who is 6'3''," he teased. "They'd all better watch out."

It later came to light that the guy in question was Luther. Fuelling rumorus he and Jorgie were dating, he had posted photos with the starlet to his Instagram account just a matter of weeks ago.

And Jorgie had previously gushed about Luther in the past, insisting he was "definitely her type".
