Geordie Shore star Scotty T has insisted he is very much single - despite rumours doing the rounds that he is dating former Miss Newcastle Francesca Toole.

Since leaving the Celebrity Big Brother house, Scotty has been linked to Francesca, but has never confirmed if the pair are actually an item or not.

While Francesca has been known to gush about the reality star on social media, Scotty has been keeping quiet. Until now, that is...

Speaking to The Daily Star Sunday, Scott insisted he is officially on the market.

"Let's clarify I don't have a girlfriend," he told the paper. "I'm too busy to settle down and have a girlfriend at the minute - that's when things start going wrong."

He said things between himself and Francesca are just "casual." Scotty added: "We're happy with it like that."

The reality star's latest comments come after Jeremy McConnell hinted Scott had a secret girlfriend while he was still living in the CBB house.

Jeremy had said: "Look, I'm not one to land my mates in it, but this is the way it goes. Scotty has a girl called Francesca on the outside. He's got this girl that he's seeing and he likes."

Since then, Scott has been seen publicly kissing Francesca and he did spend Valentine's Day with her. She shared a picture of Scott with a rose in his mouth to her Instagram, gushing alongside it: "My Valentine."

Scott, meanwhile, has been keeping coy on their romance.

Reports suggested Scott had asked Francesca to keep quiet on their relationship as he is worried it could hinder his career on Geordie Shore, but addressing the claims, Scott simply tweeted: "Oii oii to the rumour mill."

However, he did then fuel rumours he and Francesca were together by sharing a video of the pair kissing to his Instagram page - hence why we're still a little confused.

Geordie Shore returns Tuesday 15 March at 10pm on MTV.
