Jack Maynard and Love Island star Danielle Sellers have reportedly been seeing each for around seven months.

Maynard appeared on Tuesday night's show, but presenters Ant and Dec confirmed his removal half-way through the programme. The 22-year-old YouTuber and DJ had his stint on the British version of I'm a Celebrity...

Then came another blow in the form of "inappropriate" messages, sent when the YouTuber was 17 to a 14-year-old, where his representatives finally chose to remove him from the popular ITV show to allow him to have a say about the allegations made against him.

He was removed from the show after his history of homophobic and racist tweets were exposed, including using the n-word and repeated use of the slur "faggot".

He also wrote: "Your boobs are so nice!" It was something that happens to everyone.

"This is a video that I've never wanted to make, I've never wanted to make anything like this", he revealed. Since I was 16 obviously I was a kid. It's in the past.

He has also been hit by more shocking allegations that he begged a 14-year-old fan to send him nude pictures online. "I can not stress enough that the messages were harmless". Check out Jack's video below...

Following a number of damaging stories in the press, Jack broke his silence on the scandal by releasing an emotional YouTube video.

"I'm so sorry to anyone that I offended, anyone that I upset, anyone I made feel uncomfortable". I've grown an incredible following so now, through that social media has led to being my job, my entire job is this online and everything that comes with it.

"I've been really stupid in the past, I've tweeted some bad things, some terrible things, some pretty disgusting things that I'm ashamed of".

"I was so careless and inconsiderate to other people, I was young I was stupid I was careless I just wasn't thinking and this was back when I was in school". Get Me Out of Here! cut short after The Evening Standard unearthed several inappropriate tweets from his teenage years.

Maynard posted his offensive tweets between 2011 and 2013 and has since deleted many of them.

In another post he tweeted pics of people with deformities with comments "in his prime" and "Ahahahaha!"

A spokesman said he had departed "due to circumstances outside camp". "He would never use that language now and realises that, as someone who was bullied himself, this kind of retaliatory, insulting language is completely unacceptable".
