Jessica Cunningham's boyfriend has reportedly given her a "hall pass" on Celebrity Big Brother.

The Apprentice 2016 candidate Jessica revealed she was seeing fellow contestant from the BBC One show, Courtney Wood, before joining the CBB house.

The pair had been linked while filming the series in 2016 and speaking to The Sun newspaper before Christmas, Jessica confirmed they were together.

"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."

Since entering Celebrity Big Brother, Jessica has been seen flirting with Calum Best and admitting to fancying the single model.

But taking to Twitter this week, Courtney insisted he didn't mind.

He tweeted: "Nah Callum Best doesn't count, everyone fancies Callum best, even I fancy Callum best 😬 #cbb"

According to The Sun newspaper, Courtney has in fact "gave her the go-ahead to have fun with the male housemates" before Jessica joined the show last Friday night.

A source said: "He essentially granted her a hall pass and told her he doesn’t mind any flirting.

“But we all know he will be secretly devastated if she does end up bedding someone.”

Celebrity Big Brother 2017 continues nightly on Channel 5.
