Geordie Shore star Chantelle Connelly has hit out at the recent romance rumours surrounding herself and boxer Anthony Joshua.

Earlier today, the reality star made headlines after reports claimed she and Anthony are dating. She was quoted by The Sun saying she thinks Anthony is "beautiful" and is "in love" with the IBF heavyweight world champion.

Anthony, however, has dismissed the rumours and said he can't recall ever meeting Chantelle. Now, she has set the record straight revealing Anthony is her "celebrity crush" - she never claimed to be dating him.

Taking to Twitter, Chantelle addressed the reports. She tweeted: "Let's jus say I've never said I dated @anthonyfjoshua or out else. Papers asked who was my celebrity crush n I said him! #howtheytwistthings."

She then added in a second tweet: "Don't believe everything u read In the papers and if u do well Fkn hell ! #dumasf*ck."

Chantelle also insisted the claims were a "bare face lie."

Her tweets come after she reportedly revealed the pair had 'swapped numbers' after meeting at a boxing event recently.

Anthony, meanwhile, reacted to the rumours, with a spokesperson for the 26-year-old telling our friends over at Digital Spy: "We can confirm Anthony is absolutely not dating Chantelle Connelly. And does not even recall meeting her."

So just to clear up then, Chantelle and Anthony are definitely not dating. Got it?
