We have to admit, we weren’t too sure about Jess when she and Eve first entered the villa as Day 1 bombshells back in mid-January. However, after weeks in the villa, the blonde beauty grew on us all – as we’re sure Eve would have done too if she’d managed to stay in longer! - and we’ve all been rooting for her budding romance with Casa Amor’s Ched Uzor.
However, it’s been rumoured that Jess and Ched have split up already, just weeks after they left the villa together. Ched hasn’t appeared on Jess’ main Instagram page in the last two weeks despite her posting regular sexy selfies and pictures with her twin sister – and fans have been getting worried for their relationship!
Jess addressed the concerns in a Q&A on her Insta story, saying: ‘Yeah, me and Ched are still together. About the whole posting thing, I feel like we are maybe quite private and I don't feel the need to plaster him all over social media whenever we do something or whenever we go out. We put our phones away and enjoy each others company.’
In further proof that there are no problems between Jess and her man, Ched posted a picture to his own Insta with his arms around both Jess and Eve just yesterday – cheekily captioned ‘I’m the real third wheel’, although to be fair he really didn’t look like he was feeling too unhappy about the situation!
But Jess and Ched are definitely not moving as fast as some of the other Islanders, like winners Paige and Finnley who’ve already been talking about marriage and babies, as Jess admitted that they’re still not ‘official’. She said: ‘I feel like it hasn't been that long. We've come out the villa and we're getting to know each other in a different way, like you get to know what they're really like. We're taking it chill.’ Fair play!
