The 29-year-old glamour model hit headlines last week when it emerged that she had been texting the tv presenter - six years after he was originally involved in a sexting scandal with her and four other women.

Rhian is engaged to former Coronation Street actor Oliver Mellor and hit out at reports he had dumped her this morning. It as reported that the the soap star "didn't speak for the majority of last week" and called quits on their relationship. But Mellor hit back at the claims this morning posting a defiant selfie of them in bed together.

"If your 'story' is true then who the f##k is this in my bed," he wrote.

Kay, who is married to presenter Tess Daly, said his wife knew about the texts to the glamour model, which he described in 2010 as "foolish and stupid."

Posting on his public Facebook page, the 41-year-old said: "Regarding today's story: I was contacted by Rhian out of the blue back in December regarding the story in 2010 claiming she had information she wanted to pass on.

"I recognise how it may look when messages are pulled out of context but there was never any inappropriate intent to our communication, I was merely trying to find answers to questions that I've had since 2010.
