Celebrity Big Brother's Chad Johnson and Sarah Harding are still together.
Sarah has spoken out in a TV appearance to deny claims they had split.
Last week there was social media drama for the pair after Chad removed all traces of Sarah from his Instagram account.
"Things are hard – they’re so far apart, and there’s the time difference too," a source told The Sun newspaper. “When they do speak things are tense.
"She’s worried he could be using the relationship for fame, he’s talked about ending the relationship a couple of times – it’s really difficult.
“Things are hanging by a thread right now.”
A rep for Chad didn't comment on the report to the tabloid.
However Sarah has denied the suggestion of a split in a new interview.
Celebrity Big Brother winner Sarah joins ITV2's Celebrity Juice tonight alongside top actor Larry Lamb and popular presenter George Lamb, chart topping singer Paloma Faith and comedian Jimmy Carr.
In the episode, Sarah speaks out about her Celebrity Big Brother relationship with Chad.
Sarah says: "I didn’t actually go in there looking for anything at all, I didn’t look at him like that at all"
Paloma quips: "She fell on him and just fell on it, it was an accident"
Sarah reveals: "He’s from the bachelor"
