I'm A Celeb's Jordan Banjo accused of 'having affair' with jungle campmate

I'm A Celebrity star Jordan Banjo has been accused of 'having an affair' with one of his fellow campmates in the jungle.

Runner-up in the All Stars series of the reality show, Jordan was teased by his friend and Diversity groupmate Perri Kiely during their KissFM radio show about his 'crush' on winner Myleene Klass.

The 30 year old dancer is happily married and has a child with wife Naomi Courts, but it didn't prevent Perri from mercilessly making jokes at Jordan's expense whilst they were on air.

The Mirror reports that on Friday’s show, the Dancing on Ice star said: "Yesterday we addressed the recent I'm A Celeb rumour that Jordan is having an affair with fellow campmate Myleene Klass."

Teasing his friend, he told listeners that his suspicions had started after Jordan saved Myleene from elimination and the two shared a long embrace and were spotted holding hands. Taking the joke even further, Perri then told their fans that dad-of-three Jordan was no longer wearing his wedding ring.

Clearly having a laugh and making the most of winding Jordan up, he shouted: "He's just pointed at me with his left hand. I've noticed something a bit weird this morning.. He's not wearing his wedding ring."

Then, to further make his pal squirm, Peri went on to play some clips of Myleene and Jordan together in the jungle.

Struggling not to laugh, Jordan exclaimed: "You and producer Jake are snakes. You've edited that."

"I went boxing yesterday and had to take my wedding ring off and forgot to put it back on," he told listeners.

To which Perri jokingly asked: "Taking all that anger out? A lot going on at home is there?"

Obviously not offended by the banter, Jordan then told his mate to “shut up” before telling him, ‘there is no rumour. It's you being stupid.’

Myleene Klass was crowned the winner of the latest series, beating runner-up Jordan Banjo to the title - as announced by hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly on Friday night.

But while many viewers were happy for Myleene, calling her a "machine" and saying she deserved to win, others confessed they were "gutted" for Jordan who had been on the show since the very start.
