Chantelle Connelly has hit out once more and branded those who still believe that she is dating Anthony Joshua as "gullible".

Last week, it was reported that Geordie Shore star Chantelle had said that she and boxer Anthony had swapped phone numbers after meeting at an event.

However, within hours of the claims being published, Anthony's rep had spoken out and insisted the sportsman couldn't remember meeting her. This was then followed by an angry tweet from Chantelle, who also denied the claims.

Earlier today, Chantelle posted a cryptic message on her social media accounts to assure fans she "never lies". This has now been followed up by a further denial that she is romantically linked with Anthony.

"Are people still actually believing this whole AJ about people being gullible," she tweeted this evening.

Both Chantelle and Anthony have denied being romantically linked

Fans of Chantelle's have been quick to respond, with one saying: "Aww it gives 'em something to talk about chick." Another replied: "Just ignore them!"

Chantelle made her Geordie Shore debut in the MTV show's 12th series. She joined alongside new boy Marty McKenna and soon became a force to be reckoned with in the house!

The reality star soon had Scotty T and Aaron Chalmers fighting for her affections, leading Aaron to get her name tattooed onto his wrist to impress her on their first date. Scott won over Chantelle with his romantic beach picnic, though, and later drunkenly confessed he wanted her to be his girlfriend.

Their romance didn't come without a few hiccups, though, and Chantelle and Scott majorly clashed, after he hooked up with Chloe Ferry. Despite getting things back on track, Chantelle and Scott then hit a rocky patch again when Marty revealed he was going to 'finish with' Chantelle if she didn't sleep with him.

Chantelle also found herself arguing with Aaron and Marnie Simpson, and as the series wrapped up she as 'tashing on' with Scott again!
