EXCLUSIVE 'We only met once!' Swedish model Isabella Cirnski hits back at claims she's dating unlucky-in-love TOWIE star Liam 'Gatsby' Blackwell
Last week it emerged that he'd moved on from his doomed romance with Chloe Sims on TOWIE and was instead dating stunning Swedish model Isabella Cirnski.
But unfortunately for Liam 'Gatsby' Blackwell, this has been slammed by the woman herself.
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Isabella hit back at the original titters - which initially came from a source speaking to The Sun - and set the record straight.

'No - we are NOT dating!' More heartache for TOWIE's Liam 'Gatsby' Blackwell as model Isabella Cirnski blasts rumours they are dating insisting she 'just met him once'
'No - we are not dating,' the striking Swede insisted. 'I just met him once at a video shoot where he asked to take a picture together!'
Gatsby's original Instagram post, featuring him sat next to Isabella at an unknown location in Mayfair, now known to be a shoot, put the wheels in motion for the gossip to begin.
Despite the fact that the pair looked rather dour and unfriendly in the image, an eager source ran straight to The Sun with some un-supported claims.

Love lorn? The reality personality's heartbreak doesn't seem to be on the up following Isabella's vehement denials
'It's very early days between Liam and Isabella but they get on really well and are seeing how it pans out,' the source said.
Indeed, as Isabella has asserted, it's such early days that they've not seen one another since; and from her remarks, the encounter appears to only have been a one-off chance meeting.
Nevertheless, the ill-informed source had gushed: 'It's about time Liam had some happiness and Isabella is the perfect woman. It's not hard to see why Liam's keen on her - she's gorgeous.'
Isabella also cleared up the apparent confusion over where she is based.

Onwards and upwards: This crushing news is simply the next chapter in Gatsby's unfortunate 2017 where romance is concerned
'I don't live in America , I live in the UK,' she said, although had just returned from a trip to LA when she spoke to MailOnline.
This crushing news is simply the next chapter in Gatsby's unfortunate 2017 where romance is concerned.
He's been on the receiving end of heartbreak recently, thanks to a short-lived relationship with TOWIE co-star Chloe.
Should have been the first clue: Both Gatsby and Isabella's Instagrams are littered with pictures of themselves with pals, but there's very few of them together
The ex: Chloe recently told her friends Bobby Norris and Gemma Collins that she thought their romance had now ruined their friendship because their split was somewhat awkward
Everyone's at it: In recent TOWIE episodes, however, this storyline seems to have fizzled entirely, and Chloe has instead been accused of coveting Megan McKenna's ex Pete Wicks
Before Isabella set the record straight, it was thought that the news would unlikely sit well with Chloe as just three weeks ago Liam was saying how 'no girl compares' to her and expressing how determined he was to get her back.
In recent TOWIE episodes, however, this storyline seems to have fizzled entirely, and Chloe has instead been accused of coveting Megan McKenna's ex Pete Wicks.
Again, both are adamant that they are friends and nothing more, leaving more downtrodden romantics trawling the streets of Essex.
