I'm A Celebrity runner-up Jordan Banjo accused of having 'affair' with his co-star

I’m A Celebrity All Stars runner up Jordan Banjo has been accused of having an “affair” with his jungle co-star winner Myleene Klas s, 45, by his pal Perri Kiely.

Jordan, 30, is happily married to wife Naomi Courts and the couple recently welcomed their third child together.

However, the Diversity dancer was given some playful teasing by his long-time friend during their show on KissFM, which they host together.

Perri, 27, wasted no time in making fun of his mate accusing him of having a crush on the show's All Stars! winner.

During 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.’

I'm A Celebrity fans were a little divided as the winner of the South Africa spin-off series, and the new I'm A Celeb Legend, was announced on Friday night.

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

As the news came in, a shocked Myleene was clearly thrilled as Jordan congratulated his co-star after a tough trial.

It all came down to the final two as they took on possibly the most gruesome eating trial in the show's history, which featured a huge twist to normal proceedings.

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

Jordan did a lot for camp and faced several trials, making him a firm favourite among others for the series champion.
