Former 'Apprentice' Candidate James Hill Denies Selina Waterman-Smith Romance Rumours

‘The Apprentice’ star James Hill has denied claims in the press that he and Selina Waterman-Smith were spotted flirting at an event.


The rumours began on Thursday, when James, who won the most recent series of ‘Celebrity Big Brother’, was reportedly spotted “chatting up” Selina at a charity bash in London on Wednesday night, with the two ending their flirting session by exchanging numbers.

An insider told The Sun: “They were both at a bash in central London. Selina was wearing a revealing red dress which attracted a lot of attention.

“James spotted her as soon as she walked in and liked what he saw. He’s a real ladies’ man and usually fancies his chances when it comes to chatting up women."

The source continued: “They spoke for about half an hour and it’s fair to say they weren’t really paying attention to anyone else in the room.

“They got on really well and swapped numbers. James is planning on giving her a call in the next few days.”

However, he's now insisted this is not the case, setting the record straight on his Twitter page, later claiming he was "still looking for Mrs Hill":

Selina hasn’t been far from the headlines since she made her first appearance on the current series of ‘The Apprentice’, earlier this year.

She’s since repeatedly spoken out against the show, accusing it of being a fix and refusing to take part in spin-off show, ‘You’re Fired!’.

More recently, she raised eyebrows when she said she would be up for following in James’s footsteps by appearing on the next series of ‘CBB’, claiming she wants to show the public the nicer side of her personality.

Other stars tipped to be taking part include Gemma Collins, Vanilla Ice and Darren Day.
