But Sophie Kasaei thinks the suggestions are *total* rubbish...
Lewis Bloor has been pretty keen to prove his feelings for Marnie Simpson since leaving the Celebrity Big Brother house.
As you may have noticed, the 26-year-old has been gushing about his lady all over the shop since he was evicted last Friday.
While on the Loose Women panel yesterday, he revealed: ‘If we are still together in five years time, I would be surprised if she didn’t have a ring on her finger.
And when pressed on those ‘showmance’ rumours, he explained: ‘You spend every waking minute together. If you don’t know your feelings in that time, then when will you?
‘This is a new feeling for me and I understand now the way people look at it but I just can’t wait to see her.’
So there’s absolutely no way Lewis would start flirting with a member of Marnie’s family, right?
But unfortunately for the ex-TOWIE star, that’s exactly what he was accused of doing last night. Eep.
When Geordie Shore‘s Sophie Kasaei – who also happens to be Marnie’s cousin – shared a snap of herself on Twitter, Lewis replied: ‘U look lovely here soph ?.’
Sweet, right? And we can imagine Lew is keen to impress his lady’s loved ones.
However, others saw it a little differently. Comments included: ‘Hitting on her cousin already jeeeeeez,’ and: ‘Creep.’
Hmmm. We think that may be a little unfair on Lewis…
And Sophie, 26, agrees, lashing out on her page: ‘R come on! How the f*** is this flirty? People can’t say you look good these ?.’
Let’s hope Marnie has the same opinion when she leaves the house this week, eh?
