Geordie Shore's Scotty T has reacted to *those* romance rumours surrounding his co-star Chantelle Connelly and boxer Anthony Joshua.

Earlier today, reports claimed Chantelle and Anthony are 'dating.' Chantelle had been quoted saying she thinks Anthony is "beautiful", adding that she is "in love" with him and the pair swapped numbers after meeting at a boxing event.

Chantelle, however, has denied the reports and dismissed any rumours of romance, but that didn't stop Scotty T from tweeting Anthony.

He didn't say much, but he did appear to question the claims surrounding the IBF heavyweight world champion and Chantelle. Tagging Anthony directly in his tweet, Scotty said: "....@anthonyfjoshua."

What is Scotty questioning exactly, though? If Anthony and Chantelle are dating? Chantelle's claims that the rumours are a "bare face lie"? Or that Anthony has said he can't 'recall every meeting' Chantelle?

Just as Chantelle has done, Anthony dismissed the reports. A spokesperson for the 26-year-old told our friends at Digital Spy: "We can confirm Anthony is absolutely not dating Chantelle Connelly. And does not even recall meeting her."

She. meanwhile, took to Twitter to set the record straight herself and told fans: "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."

Chantelle later clarified again: "While I definitely think Anthony Joshua is handsome, we are not dating."

Is Scott just trying to stir the pot?

Some of his fans suggested Scott was 'jealous' over the rumours, as he and Chantelle had been linked during the last series of Geordie Shore.

Fans watched the pair strike up a bit of a romance, shortly after Chantelle entered the house. He appeared to be quite taken with the newcomer and drunkenly revealed he had wanted her to be his girlfriend! We're not kidding...

Their romance wasn't exactly plain sailing, though, as Chloe Ferry caused problems for the pair. She had told Chantelle on her entering the house that she was in love with Scott, and was left heartbroken when Chantelle still decided to pursue things with him.

Chantelle and Scott were pretty on and off, but after falling out (thanks to Marty McKenna) the duo were seen kissing again in the series finale.

One fan commented on Scotty's tweet: "Jealous Scott?" Others dared Scott to take Anthony on in a fight...

One joked: "Scotty T Vs. Anthony joshua at wembley? Watch that anyday." Another added: "Lmao Scott, have you seen AJ grafting Chantelle, get Gaz on him to tag team like you did Marty."
