The gossip mill was in full drive on last night's The Only Way Is Essex after Georgia Kousoulou revealed she'd heard a rumour that Courtney and Lockie, who are both single, had slept together.
Georgia decided to ask Courtney directly, saying she didn't want Lockie's ex-girlfriend Danielle Armstrong to get hurt by the speculation.
Courtney burst into tears as she denied the gossip and defended herself, saying she didn't even have Lockie's number and had been clubbing with him once.
Now, her BFF Chloe has backed her up, telling the show's official website: "It's so ridiculous and unfair how it's gone from Courtney saying a boy is good looking, making a comment and observation, to people turning it into she's slept with him.
"It's so ridiculous how it's gone from here up to there. Zero to 100. It's ridiculous."
Courtney chimed in: "I've just never heard a rumour like that about me that is not true whatsoever, it shocked me. I was speechless, like, where did this come from!? I have so much respect for myself that I don't just sleep with anyone."
She reiterated that she hasn't even kissed him and doesn't have his phone number: "The most I do is follow him on Instagram!"
The girls agreed they need to find out where the rumour started, and for Courtney, her first stop will be asking Lockie himself.
