Jorgie Porter may have been flirting up a storm with George Shelley, but it looks like the former soap star is already off the market. According to Mail Online, the Union J singer's efforts to woo are in vain as the ex-Hollyoaks actress is dating England rugby player Luther Burrell.

Andi Peters let the cat out of the bag during Thursday night's episode of companion programme I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! Now!, when he told presenters Laura Whitmore and Joe Swash that the pint-sized beauty has a new beau back in the UK.

"They are all after Jorgie but I know the bloke who she is stepping out with in the UK at the moment," he said. "He's an England rugby player who is 6'3'', they all better watch out."

A shocked Swash replied: "Little Jorgie is going out with a rugby player? I'd love to see that!"

Peters' revelation comes two weeks after Porter shared a snap of her cuddled up with Burrell, who plays for Northampton Saints , on her Instagram account. Burrell, 27, also has pictures of Porter plastered blonde on his social media accounts, one is even captioned: "My fav," alongside an emoji of a kiss.

Despite romance reports, the couple are remaining coy about their budding relationship. A rep for Porter told the MailOnline. "Jorgie and Luther have been on a couple of dates recently but they're not in a relationship."

In an awkward twist, the Manchester native has made no reference to her love interest during her time in the jungle, and has spent her time in the jungle cuddling up with Shelley. He even offered his shoulder when she broke down while opening up about her emotional truth behind her difficult road to stardom.

Ahead of the launch of the new series executive producer Tom Gould confirmed that show bosses were hoping to recreate Katie Price and Peter Andre's jungle romance with the installation of a "private area".

"Before, the treehouse was an area where they could go and have some private time as a couple – but it never really felt like they were out of the camp there," he said. "Down at the bottom of the creek is completely out of the way."
