Roman Kemp has revealed that an ex girlfriend dumped him because she thought he was having an affair with his co-host Vick Hope.
The Capital DJ was accused of cheating on his former flame when she saw pictures of him appearing to be zipping up Vick’s dress at an awards ceremony.
The radio presenter said because his ex-girlfriend was Greek and had no idea he was famous, she assumed he was cheating on her and promptly ended their relationship.
The Mirror reports how the former I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! finalist reveals it is one of his favourite dating anecdotes to tell because he thinks it’s “hilarious” that anyone would think he and Vick were an item.
Roman, aged 27, is currently single and recently revealed he has joined the dating app Bumble in a bid to find love.
He said he was dumped by his Greek flame when she saw a photograph of him doing up the zip of fellow Capital presenter Vick’s dress. The pair had been together on the red carpet of the MTV EMA awards when Vick’s dress burst completely open after a clasp became undone.
“I had a Greek girlfriend; she didn’t read the papers or really know what I did for a living. It was a nightmare. We had to go to the MTV EMAs Vick and I, and on the red carpet, Vick’s dress completely fell open,” he said.
“Obviously, I’ve seen it, so I’ve run over and helped her out, done up the back again. So that’s what all the photos that ended up in the newspaper were, just me helping Vick do her dress up again.
“So, she saw this photo, flipped out and then didn’t really like me again and basically broke up with me because she thought I was having an affair with Vick.”
Despite their close bond, Roman insisted that there has never been a spark between himself and Vick because he simply sees her as a sister and ‘doesn’t think of her in that way’.
Roman became single again in recent months after he and ex-flame Anne-Sophie Flury decided to call in quits on their three-year romance.
The handsome telly star has since been linked to Lottie Moss and has revealed that he’s joined Bumble in a bid to find love again.
