Curtis Pritchard has denied he is dating Kimberly Hart-Smith, after accidentally making it sound like they’d been waking up in bed together.
The former Love Island star, 24, had been starring alongside the Coronation Street actress in Celebs Go Dating, where the pair struck up a good friendship.
Curtis had sparked dating rumours when he posted a snap of the two of them together, writing: ‘@kimberly_h_s is the best!!!
‘Waking up and not seeing your face in the bed next to me this morning just didn’t feel right.’
However, he has since clarified that the post was ‘dyslexia at its finest’ and came out sounding quite different to what he’d intended.
Speaking on the AJ vs Curtis podcast, Curtis explained: ‘I’ve just done an Instagram post and I’ve messed up.
‘This is dyslexia at its finest. My whole press team has just come on to me asking… Kimberly was in the bed next to me and we’d always wake up and have a quick conversation in the morning.’
His brother AJ Pritchard then added: ‘But you haven’t written that in that post. To anybody else that is sleeping in the same bed as the person.’
Curtis revealed he had apologised to Kimberly for the furore, but thankfully she’d seen the funny side.
‘Yeah, that is genuinely my bad. I wrote it completely wrong. In my head it sounded right,’ he said.
‘I messaged her saying, “I’m so sorry, I’ve completely worded this wrong.” And she just put, “[Laughing face], well we’re married now, it’s all good. Don’t worry.”
‘We actually look really good in the photo on Instagram as well.’
Curtis and Kimberly, who plays Nicky Wheatley on the ITV soap are both looking for love on Celebs Go Dating along with Geordie Shore’s Chloe Ferry, Wayne Lineker and former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Karim Zeroual.
The latest episode of the AJ vs Curtis podcast features Saffron Barker and is out now.
