The sourced added: 'He only deleted the tweets after a young girl, who was aged just eight at the time, messaged her hero asking him to take them down.'

Jack Maynard's latest statement in full

I have taken some time to reflect on the comments, tweets and ultimately my behaviour in the past, including a tweet sent in 2011 that is the subject of a story today.

I was young, naive and stupid – but as I said previously, age is no excuse. My immaturity meant that I didn't stop for a second to think whether these comments would hurt or harm anyone - something I have learnt is entirely wrong. If I had just thought for a moment, about how stupid they were, then I would never have sent them.

Nothing can justify the language I used, there is no defence – I am truly sorry. My childish attitude back then is not a representation of my thoughts and feelings now.

I take full responsibility and regret my mistakes. As an adult, I understand the effect my words have on people, whether I have a big or small platform to speak from. Again, I am so sorry to anyone I have offended or disappointed.

Jack was sent home to the UK from Australia last week, after being pulled out of the show when his online history came back to haunt him.

Boasting an online following of 1,195,687, Jack was found to have sent out?a string of offensive messages on Twitter - featuring the use of homophobic and racist language - between 2011-2013.?

He was subsequently accused of sending inappropriate messages to a 14-year-old girl when he was 16, persistently asking her to send pictures in her bra.

The younger brother of popstar Conor Maynard apologised for the 'disgusting things' he had done on Thursday in a new YouTube video, and said he felt 'ashamed'.

Jack's agent made the decision to pull him out of the show this week after a number of tweets posted online five years ago containing racist remarks resurfaced.

It has now been claimed by The Sun that Jack could lose up to £20,000 a month in lucrative sponsored deals from high street brands.

Big companies including The Body Shop, Walkers and Snickers are said to be cutting off support for the viral star, while his contracts with Cadbury, Puma, Nike, Schwarzkopf and LG are reported to be under threat.

A spokesperson previously explained in a statement: 'In the last few days Jack has been the subject of a succession of media stories which, given his position as a contestant on I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here - filmed in the Australian jungle, with no contact with the outside world, he has been unable to respond to.

'Since it is only fair that everyone should be aware of any allegations made against them and should also have the right to defend themselves, it was agreed that it would be better to bring him out of the show.

'Jack agrees with this decision which was made by his representatives and ITV and thanks everyone who has supported him in the show this far.'

The accusations have been made by The Mirror on Wednesday, one day after he was ejected from the Australian jungle and sent back to the UK without a televised goodbye, or his £25,000 fee - where he is said to have 'sneaked back home on his 23rd birthday' after going into 'hiding' - The Sun reports.

She responds: 'Secrets are kept secrets...' but he persists, saying: 'You can tell me babe...'

He tries to convince the user that he works as a 'stylist', but when she refuses twice more, he replies: 'You're a bore'.

The woman, who wants to remain unidentified and is now aged 20, has spoken out about the messages she exchanged with Jack and claimed the star had been 'harmlessly flirting' with her, but she found his persistence 'rude and annoying'.

She told the publication: 'I saw it as relatively harmless flirting given the small age gap. He was very immature then, very rude.

'I don't think he was aware I was younger than him. He was just a bit of a d**khead back then... The thing that most upset me about the messages was when he turned on me - I didn't see any need for that at all. I'm glad I didn't send anything.'
