Jessica Cunningham's Apprentice 'boyfriend' has laughed off her Celebrity Big Brother flirting.
And he's also insisted that the pair aren't actually "officially together".
The pair had been linked while filming the series in 2016 but both played down the rumours ahead of the final last month.
But speaking to The Sun newspaper before Christmas, Jessica confirmed they were seeing one another.
"To be fair we did have a romance on the show. It is early days now. We are seeing how everything goes. He is a good-looking lad," she told the tabloid. "He is charming and considerate.
"We do like each other though and we are just going to take things slowly."
Jessica has since entered the CBB house and has already been getting flirty with fellow housemate Calum Best in her first week on the show.
And in tonight's episode the pair were seen getting cosy as they massaged one another.
But taking to Twitter, Courtney insisted he didn't mind.
He posted in a message online: "Nah Callum Best doesn't count, everyone fancies Callum best, even I fancy Callum best 😬 #cbb"
And Courtney also revealed just how last minute Jessica's entrance into the house was, saying: "When your dinner date cancels as they are going into the #cbb house."
Courtney has since gone on to play down the pair's relationship.
He tweeted: "Just to clear everything up, me and Jessica have been dating since the apprentice but are not officially together. It's as simple as that"
