FOOTBALL superstar Jack Grealish and Love Island alum Ellie Brown set tongues wagging when they were seen together on a night out in Manchester.
After onlookers claimed the two “seemed really into each other”, here’s what’s really going on…
Are Ellie Brown and Jack Grealish dating?
Despite the pair setting rumor mill alight, it doesn’t look like there’s any potential for romance here.
A source close to Ellie Brown told the Sun: “There is nothing between Ellie and Jack. She merely bumped into him outside the event. They have mutual friends.”
Jack is reportedly still dating his long-time girlfriend and childhood sweetheart Sasha Atwood, a 25-year-old aspiring influencer and make-up guru.
However, it was reported earlier this month that the 25-year-old football superstar had updated his profile on elite celeb dating app Raya.
At the time, Jack’s spokesman simply said “we don’t comment on these matters, whether they are correct or incorrect.”
Who else has former Love Island contestant Ellie Brown dated?
Ellie appeared on series 4 of the hit reality show in 2018 and now works full time as an influencer after racking up an impressive 1.3 million Instagram followers.
She’s also worked with major fashion brands including Shein and Boohoo.
Ellie has revealed that she prepared extensively for the show and spent thousands on plastic surgery to ready herself for a career in the spotlight.
During her time in the villa, she found a spark with socialite and richest contestant ever Charlie Brake who she stayed with for two months after leaving Love Island.
After her split from Charlie in September 2018, Ellie began dating The Only Way Is Essex star Joey Essex.
She shared a video of them kissing in November 2018 but their romance ultimately proved to be short-lived.
She was later linked to series 5 contestant Michael Griffiths after they both appeared on MTV reality show Ex On The Beach – where Ellie came face to face with Joey Essex once again.
It’s thought that 23-year-old Ellie is currently single.
