They're just friends, okay.

Jem and Bear have had many speculating if they could be romantically linked, after spending plenty of time together recently. The pair have shared a slew of photos with each other on social media and appeared to seem pretty close in their snaps.

In one photo, Bear and Jem are seen cuddling up together with their arms around each other. Bear captioned the shot: "Me and my @jem_lucy." In another, he is seen holding his hand (to show off his skull tattoo) over Jem's mouth.

However, this does not mean that Jem and Bear are an item and stressing that their relationship is purely platonic, Jem took to Twitter to set the record straight.

She tweeted: "Can I please state that bear is my very good friend and that's it! WE ARE NOT DATING why can't two people be close mates without all this."

Jem and Bear are currently both starring on the latest series of Ex On The Beach. While Bear has been reunited with exes Kayleigh Morris and Holly Rickwood on the show, Jem found herself coming face-to-face with her ex-boyfriend Hawley.

Prior to Hawley's arrival Jem had hooked up with Geordie Shore's Gaz Beadle.

She is currently now single, as is Bear. He had been dating Gaz's ex girlfriend Lillie Lexie Gregg after meeting her on Ex On The Beach, but their relationship publicly broke down while Bear was starring on Celebrity Big Brother.

He enjoyed a brief onscreen romance with Chloe Khan while in the CBB house, but fans of the pair are yet to see anything develop between them on the outside. Bear hasn't ruled it out, though, insisting he wants to take things slow with the former X Factor star.

He told the Loose Women panel: "What it is with Chloe is she's the nicest girl I've ever met in my whole life. Who knows what it might bring? I don't want anyone else for now but I will take it nice and slow."
