Casey Batchelor may have been embroiled in one of the biggest love triangles on the box with Lee Ryan and Jasmine Waltz in Celebrity Big Brother last year but she took the moral high ground recently and happily spoke to him at a showbiz party last month.


When Closer caught up with the star at the Malibu Rum suite at Olly Murs’ gig at the O2 this week she revealed she bumps into the former Blue singer regularly but isn’t one to harbour bad feelings for her ex.

Casey and Lee grew close in the CBB house last year

Casey told us: “Can you believe I bumped into Lee the other night? But then it happens all the time. I’m happy to speak to him I’m not going to be horrible, that’s not me.”

The single star who has previously dated Peter Andre and has had more than her fair share of heartache and was happy to give her advice on getting over someone.


She says: “When you’re feeling upset over a guy and are tempted to message him, tell yourself if you hold out without replying for two weeks you’ll stop thinking about him. Be strong, don’t get in touch and I promise you’ll feel better in time.”

And if that wasn’t enough reason to give Casey a “high five” Closer witnessed the size 8 star tuck into pizza and chips, busting the myth that models don’t eat carbs.

She says: “Of course I eat pizza and chips. I’ve had the flu all week so can finally enjoy food, but I work hard, I go to the gym four times a week.”
