Big Brother stars Chanelle McCleary and Raph Korine reunite blasting rumours they wouldn’t remain friends

REALITY TV star, Chanelle McCleary has blasted rumours that her and Big Brother runner-up, Raph Korine, are no longer friends.

McCleary posted to her 263,000 followers that she’s catching up with her “bestie”, attaching a glammed photo of her and a casual looking Raph.

Channelle said: “f*ck the people that said we wouldn’t stay mates.”

McCleary broke onto the TV scene during an early episode of ITV’s Take Me Out and Channel 4’s Dinner Date.

The Reality TV star is mostly known for her appearance on MTV’s Ex on the Beach, where she was kicked off the show for starting a fight with another contestant.

Raph hit our screens last year on Channel 5’s social experiment show, Big Brother – which is how the stars connected and quickly bonded.

Fans warmed to the duos relationship, with some fans suggesting they were more than just friends.

Chanelle and Raph became fan favourites of the 2017 series.

Some viewers said their friendship was ‘fake’ and ‘just for TV’.

After leaving the infamous Big Brother House, fans suggested the two would drift apart.

Since they’ve been out Chanelle and Raph have connected several times and always remind fans they are “still mates”.

One fan tweeted: “You two are so sweet!” and another labeled the stars “iconic”.
