Celebs Go Dating's Curtis Pritchard has addressed speculation he is dating his co-star Kimberly Hart-Simpson, admitting the pair are not an item and insisted he simply "messed up" an Instagram post
Curtis Pritchard has clarified he is not dating Kimberly Hart-Simpson, and admitted he accidentally sparked speculation by "messing up" an Instagram post.
The professional dancer fuelled rumours he and his 'Celebs Go Dating' co-star may be an item when he shared a social media post about missing waking up next to her in the show's mansion, but he has now insisted his post was "dyslexia at its finest".
He said: "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 added: "But you haven't written that in that post.
"To anybody else that is sleeping in the same bed as the person."
Curtis admitted he spoke to Kimberly to explain his post, and the 'Coronation Street' actress saw the funny side of it – and joked they are now "married".
Speaking on their 'AJ vs Curtis' podcast, Curtis said: "Yeah that is genuinely my bad. I wrote it completely wrong.
"In my head it sounded right.
"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' initial post read: "@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 (sic)"
