Jessica Wright has laughed off claims she's smitten with Celebrity Big Brother winner James Hill.

The former TOWIE star, 30, was in the news today after an insider claimed she'd been secretly romancing businessman James and he'd even met her parents, indicating things had become serious.

But Jess, who is currently in the US, rubbished the reports this evening.

"Waking up to the most hilarious stories," she tweeted, alongside a string of laughing face emojis.

"Where do they actually get this from ?!!!!!!"

A rep for Jess also dismissed the report, telling Mail Online it was untrue and false. James has not yet commented on the rumour.

It had seemed feasible the pair could be dating, as James did admit to fancying Jessica in an interview earlier this year.

James previously namechecked Jess as his dream woman in an interview, prompting her to reply: "He's definitely a good looking guy. I didn't really watch CBB, so I don't know too much about him - except that he's been linked to a few girls.

"But I'll have to have a little look online and check him out!"

Jess, who is currently over in LA attending a string of business meetings, was previously in a relationship with TOWIE co-star Ricky Rayment, and enjoyed a string of dates with Pete Wicks.

She quit The Only Way Is Essex ahead of the current 17th series.
