Vogue Williams and Spencer Matthews are "very fond of each other" as their The Jump co-star confirmed those persistent romance rumours.

Despite the fact that the Irish tv presenter (31) was forced to pull out of the show due to a knee injury, she has remained close with the former Made in Chelsea star (27) after hitting it off the reality skiing competition programme.

For weeks, the pair have been romantically linked but both have been quick to deny their relationship is anything more than platonic; earlier this week, Spencer described the Howth native as his "best friend".

Comedian Mark Doland said: "I don't think it's a secret that Spencer and Vogue have established a rapport.

"They were very sweet together and I know they're very fond of each other."

Davina McCall, who is hosting the Channel 4 show, also took aim at the rumoured couple during filming earlier this month.

When speaking of her disappointment at having to leave the show, Vogue said she made "really good friends" during her time in Austria.

"Especially with Spencer Matthews," Davina quipped.

Spencer, whose brother James will marry Pippa Middleton in May, said it's "very weird" being on the show without his rumoured other half.

"Vogue and I were best friends and we spent all our time together," he told new! magazine.

"So now she's not here, it feels very weird. Vogue and I are just very good friends. If love were to fall into my lap, then I would be all over it.

"I think any human being would always welcome love. But I don't think that's why I came here.

"Vogue's a lovely girl, she's a very good friend and I think we'll be friends forever."
