Earlier today, ex-Mis-Teeq singer Washington said that she was hoping to take former Hollyoaks star Manning out on a date to KFC.
However, despite speculation that they had grown close during their three weeks on I'm A Celebrity..., the actor has now dismissed any spark of romance between them.
Manning, who was voted off the show last night, told GMTV this morning: "Everyone thinks it was a little bit more, but it's not - we're just friends.
"Sorry. I really enjoyed her company, we're at the same age bracket and we had good chats, [but] that's all it was."
