She added: 'I'm absolutely fine, we're good friends. I've seen him since he's been back but just keeping it all on the down low for now.

'We've always been so close, we finished things a long time ago so I stand up for everything that's going on but the comments, that's all down to him now.'?

The brief I'm A Celeb star, 23, and Danielle were said to be quietly dating over the last seven months, although this was not something Jack made common knowledge.?

Danielle appeared to have moved on from the scandal, however, as she was seen leaving the bash alongside former TOWIE star, Joey Essex.

The pair looked in good spirits on the outing, beaming broadly as they strolled out of the venue side by side.

Despite her love woes, Danielle put on a brave face as she let her body rather than love life do the talking - opting?to go lingerie free beneath a sizzling gown with a deeply slashed side and perilously high-cut top as she left little to the imagination.

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Jack for comment.

Danielle and Joey's representatives said: 'They are just friends both represented by the same management leaving an event with their agents'. ?

Just hours before the event, it was revealed Danielle had split from Jack , amid claims the blogger 'didn't see her as girlfriend material'.

A source told The Sun: 'Jack and Danielle are no longer together, he said he didn't see her as girlfriend material and never introduced her to his parents.??

Last week reports surfaced claiming that axed Jack and one-time Islander Danielle had been in a secret relationship throughout, with their last sighting together being just weeks before Jack entered the jungle.

The reports came despite Jack giving the impression that he was single on the ITV reality show, from which he was removed last Tuesday for misconduct online.

In pictures obtained by MailOnline, Jack and Danielle were seen on a cosy night out London's Radio Rooftop bar in September.

'Jack and Danielle have spent a lot of time together over the past seven months,' a source disclosed.?

'They'd quietly attended industry events together and made no secret among pals of how close they were. Jack has been making it sound like he's single since he's been on the show but he's been saying different things.'?

Disgraced social media sensation Jack recently came under fire again for making light about sexual assault in a series of deleted tweets.

The YouTube star was axed from I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! earlier this month amid claims of inappropriate behaviour towards an underage girl when he was 16-years old.

Now adding to the furore, Jack is said to have posted on Twitter in 2011 that he would 'rape' anyone who helped him grow his online audience on the micro-blogging site.

Shared when the vlogger was 16 on November 11 2001, the post read: 'If you get me to 1500 followers by tomorrow… I will kiss you……. Most likely rape you though.'

Earlier the same year, the younger brother of singer Conor Maynard posted another tweet which referenced sexual assault again when he replied to a fan with: 'I raped her... haha.'

Since hitting the headlines again, Jack released another statement about his latest Twitter furore and insisted that 'nothing can justify the language' he used.

He added that his 'childish attitude back then' isn't a reflection of his thoughts now.

He told MailOnline: '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.

Adding: '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.?
