TV presenter Vogue Williams played down romance rumours with friend Laurence Fox.

The pair were linked after Fox, whom she starred with on Bear Grylls: Mission Survive, posted a picture of the two of them at dinner in London on Twitter.

Fox recently split with wife Billie Piper after eight years of marriage, while Vogue split with ex-husband Brian McFadden in July 2015.

"We went out for a drink, but that was it. It's very weird that people are putting us together and it's very untrue. I don't even know where it came from, it's been sly, " she told Closer magazine.

"I don't want to be dragged into something like that, but I suppose it always happens when someone's going through something like that."

Vogue, who shot to fame on RTE reality show Fade Street, and her ex have been back in the headlines yet again as McFadden recently revealed he and the model no longer speak.

They were known for their amicable post-split relationship as they remained living together for several months in Dublin and London following news of their impending divorce and they also spent Christmas and Valentine's Day together. Vogue flew to Austria to cheer him on during his turn on ITV's The Jump.

But it looks like those days are behind them as he told the Loose Women panel last week: "I'm not in contact with Vogue. Not anymore. I think before there may have been some unfinished business but we have both now moved on.

"I can switch straight off away. Instead of mourning somebody, I train my head to imagine they don't exist. Simple things like unfollowing them on social media, getting rid of all pictures, anything that would remind me of them and just carry on with life."

Meanwhile, Vogue said she is consciously pulling back when it comes to dishing on her personal life in public, saying: "I'm not going to talk about relationships any more, because it just backfires on me all the time. It's giving too much of myself away and leaving me open to more opinions when I don't particularly want them."
