Reality TV regular Amy Childs has said she is not "involved in a relationship" with former England cricketer Darren Gough after they became "good friends" filming a celebrity winter sports show.

The pair, who were among the cast in Channel 4 show The Jump, have been linked after reports that Gough had separated from his wife.

A spokeswoman for Childs said: " Amy and Darren met while filming for The Jump, they became good friends during filming and remain so, they have never been involved in a relationship."

Gough, who played for Yorkshire and Essex, now works as a broadcaster on the radio station talkSPORT.

Childs, who found fame in ITV's The Only Way Is Essex, has also appeared in Celebrity Big Brother.
