Reports surfaced yesterday (March 13) that the former Skins actor had spent time with Contostavlos in Derby, before being photographed outside a London nightclub.

O'Connell took to his Twitter account to dismiss the rumours, describing them as "bulls**t".

"Laughable these headlines are, pure bulls**t the lot of 'em," he wrote.

"Boyfriend?? ME!? Kids please settle down. How old are these ppl? Slap ya selves. (sic)"

Contostavlos had previously hinted that she had started a new relationship, tweeting: "I am seeing some1!! Cus Im a bloody human being. Like my men a bit ruff around the edges!"

She was also rumoured to have had a fling with The Only Way is Essex star Mark Wright in Miami, but both she and Wright have denied the reports.
