Jacqueline Jossa has denied having a personal relationship with Khloe Kardashian after it was reported they had "bonded over insecurities."
The 28 year old was believed to have connected with Khloe, 36, after spending time with her step-dad Caitlyn Jenner, 71, in the I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! jungle in 2019.
Khloe has been seen commenting on the former EastEnders star's posts with love heart emojis and sweet messages in recent weeks.
But it had been reported that she had managed to forge a fully-fledged friendship with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, who was said to have got in touch over one of Jacqueline's body positive posts.

A source told Closer: "Jac really looks up to Khloe and she's always been one of her idols, so when she secretly reached out and directly messaged her following one of her body-positivity posts on Instagram, she was shocked — and admittedly starstruck.
"Having been through similar personal experiences, Khloe told Jac how Caitlyn suggested they connect, and they hit it off immediately," the insider continued.
However, a representative for Jacqueline denied there is a "personal relationship" between the reality stars.
Earlier this month, fans of the former Queen of the Jungle were surprised to find Khloe had commented "Beautiful" under an image of Jacqueline showing off her midriff in a stunning pink two piece.
Just days later, Khloe adorned the comments section of an image of Jacqueline in a sports bra pair of shorts and jacket and a matching jacket with a number of pink love heart emojis.

Khloe's adoration no doubt cheered Jacqueline up after a source told new magazine this week that the star is at "breaking point" as trolls are taking a "severe toll" on her mental health.
The insider said: "Jacqueline says the negative messages have made her unwell. When it's message after negative message, even the strongest people are affected and it can take a huge toll on your mental health.
"Jacqueline is strong, but everyone has a breaking point, and when it comes to her kids, she is extremely protective.

"She's taken steps to protect her mental health now. She's taking a stand, speaking out and blocking websites that contain threads about them.
"Dan also tells Jacqueline to put her phone down, as looking at these horrible comments does nothing good.
"He is super protective, so he finds it frustrating that he can't protect his family from trolling."
