Anne Hegerty’s secret US boyfriend revealed after she addresses lesbian rumours

Anne Hegerty’s love life is something of a mystery for fans of The Chase.

She is regularly forced to turn down flirty messages from fans wrongly assuming she’s a lesbian.

But the I’m A Celebrity star has revealed one clue about her secret boyfriend.

The 60-year-old previously revealed that she once dated an American man.

"I did use to have a Californian boyfriend whose mother was a DAR. Naturally he was pro-immigration!" she tweeted in August 2017.

She also became fed up of correcting fans about her unmarried status.

Not particularly. Is it still claiming I’m married to someone called Jake Hester? I’ve given up trying to correct it," she tweeted in July 2018.

Anne, who is currently single, said she finds new relationships difficult due to her Asperger syndrome.

"[I] need to have a lot of space to myself," she explained.

Anne is one of the ten celebs currently battling it out to be crowned King or Queen of the jungle this year.

Anne and John have yet to meet on the show as they’ve been placed in rival teams with separate living quaters.
