Jessica Cunningham is taking her relationship with Courtney Wood slowly because she has other things to focus on for now
Jessica Cunningham doesn't have a romantic relationship with Courtney Wood at the moment.
The 'Apprentice' finalist dropped jaws earlier this week when she began flirting up a storm with Calum Best in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house because she's meant to be dating her former co-star but she has admitted that she and the hunk are nothing serious at the moment and are going with the flow.
Speaking to new! magazine prior to entering the house, Jessica said: "We have a lot of fun and have an amazing connection and whatever happens, he'll always be in my life. But I don't know how the romantic side will develop and I don't think you should unnecessary pressure on it."
The couple booked a last-minute holiday away together shortly after Christmas because they wanted to enjoy some alone time together without the cameras being on them and Jessica felt it was necessary she had a break from her three children, whom she has from a previous relationship.
She explained: "I'm so busy with the kids and my business and everything that when I see Courtney I love it, because it feels so special. Today is the first time we've seen each other in 10 fays so that why I'm being really hyper. But I still get nervous in case we have nothing to say to each other."
The pair struck up their relationship while competing on the business show earlier this year and, although producers were happy for them to date, they banned them from having sex in the house.
Courtney said: "We were told by the producers that we weren't allowed to have sex, but we certainly weren't told off by anyone else."
