In an interview with The Sun, her ex Scotty said: "Oh yeah, I knew that. Yeah, I know Danny well. Me and Ashleigh are pals. Whatever she does she does. I've got nothing against either of them."

Ashleigh and Scotty appeared as exes on the fourth series of Ex On The Beach. Ahead of filming, Ash had said: "Me and him were together for a couple of years and he broke my heart. Everyone looks at Scott and they think, 'he's this lad that sh*gs all these birds' and stuff like that, but he actually isn't like that, he has got a good heart."

During the show, the former couple addressed their past, showing there was still a lot of love and respect between them – particularly when they were sent on a date down memory lane, featuring photos of them in happier times.

Scotty had said: "We did have a very strong relationship. Before Geordie Shore came along, I met her and I got on so well with her. I didn't get with anyone else, I literally saw her everyday. Once this Geordie Shore party boy image came about, we drifted apart. I'll always respect her and I'll always love her... I wouldn't want to hurt her again. As long as she's happy, then I am happy."

And Ashleigh added: "Me and Scott were literally best friends. We were like soulmates," she said. "He's the only person that I've proper, proper loved and he'll say the same about me.

Since then, Scotty has been dating Francesca Toole, but told The Sun they weren't putting a label on their relationship right now.
