They’ve both enjoyed equally unsuccessful, fleeting stints on reality TV in the last seven months.
But axed I’m A Celebrity star Jack Maynard and one-time Love Island contestant Danielle Sellers are now believed to have been in a secret relationship throughout, with their last sighting together being just weeks before Jack entered the jungle.
According to The Sun, disgraced YouTuber Jack, 22, is thought to be ‘serious’ about the glamour model, despite giving the impression that he was single on the ITV reality show, from which he was removed on Tuesday for misconduct online.
