Love Island star Jess Hayes denied she had received a ban from the races, but that was before she had been made aware of the ban herself.

Jess and fellow Love Island star Katie Salmon had come under fire for flashing their boobs at Cheltenham Races, back in March earlier this year. It has since been reported that the girls had received a 'life ban' from all of the UK's racing course by the British Horseracing Authority, and Jess had taken to Twitter to hit out at the claims.

She dismissed such reports, that had claimed she had received a letter from the BHA, advising her that appropriate action would be taken in response to their "unacceptable and offensive" behaviour at Cheltenham. Jess had tweeted in response: "Seriouslyyyyyy there was no letter received so it's not true."

Katie, meanwhile, didn't dismiss the reports, but did appear to shrug off the claims, tweeting: "Who wants to go the races anyway."

However, a rep for Jess has told Reveal that she was previously unaware of the ban and has now "received correspondence" which she will be responding to.

Jess had been caught exposing her boobs on camera, alongside Katie, while attending the races five months ago. Following pictures being published online of the girls exposing their boobs at Cheltenham, Jess had hit back via Twitter after receiving criticism online.

Some had claimed she should have had 'more class', prompting Jess to reply: "It's called being drunk young we all make mistakes its banter and I'm sorry but I used to do page 3 so nothing new. Nothing to do with class."

She added in a second tweet: "We all get drunk, we all have banter and make mistakes I'm the first to admit but the vile comments keep to yourself you don't know me."
