He continued: “Whenever I see Paige I am going to speak to the girl. I’ve got nothing against her. She's a lovely girl and I'm always gonna care for her. It's as simple as that.

"Once you have feelings for someone it doesn't just go, you're always going to care for them no matter what, so that's how I see Paige right now."

Jacques went on: “She's getting a lot of hate and bad press, but if we've got each other to look out for each other why would we not, because we're actually good people. So it's just normal to be nice to each other.

"She's been done over badly by you know someone, so I'm going to have her back when she's been treated badly by a bloke like that."

Despite the pair looking cosy during their recent night out, Jacques insisted that they are currently just friends.
