CBB: Rhian Sugden denies sex texting Vernon Kay

Celebrity Big Brother star Rhian Sugden has denied claims that she sent sex texts to Vernon Kay.

Kay admitted to exchanging “racy” messages and talking to Vernon at the time – which a newspaper deeming them “too explicit” to publish – however the glamour model told fellow housemate, Jasmine Lennard, that the pair were just friends.

“We spoke as friends. We were just friends – but we spoke too much.”

“I never sent a sex text and I never sold a story.”

Jasmine went on to question Rhian about a direct quote she had read in the press. However Rhian was quick to defend herself, insisting that the quotes were taken from a Twitter account that doesn’t belong to her, adding that Kay is “too old” for her.

The glamour model also revealed how she has faced a public backlash over her behaviour, and was nervous about entering the Celebrity Big Brother house because Coleen Nolan is friends with Kay’s wife Tess Daly, who was “extremely upset” about the incident.

She also added that living with Samantha Brick is “awkward” because the journalist wrote a negative article about her prior to the show.
