THE Apprentice star Jade English has split from her boyfriend of three years following her ‘steamy fling’ with fellow contestant James White.

Earlier this week The Sun revealed that the budding entrepreneurs had got down to some saucy antics away from the boardroom – despite both being in relationships, both of which have now come to an end.

PR worker Jade, 25, had been with boyfriend and male model Joel Bennett for three years before taking part in The Apprentice, which saw her embark on a short lived affair with James.

A source close to Joel’s family told the Mail Online: “It’s true they are no longer together. He doesn’t want to talk about it and wants to keep it all private.

“He has seen what has been said and does not want to get involved, but I know he and Jade are no longer together.”

The news comes just days after it was revealed that James’ relationship with his fiancee Laura Case had also come to an end following news of his infidelity.

Her mother Gail told Mail Online: “They have split up because of this and it’s so upsetting.

“My daughter has been in bed all day crying her heart out. It’s been an awful day.”

Laura and James got engaged last year and the pair even threw a party for their friends and family to celebrate the news.

Her mum Gail explained how Laura had spent the day in bed after seeing the news on The Sun.

She also admitted James had blocked Laura on all forms of social media and said the 25-year-old was “heartbroken.”

A TV insider said of their steamy behind the scenes hook up: “Tension had been building between James and Jade during filming.

“There was clearly an attraction from the beginning. They’re both young and attractive people and they really got along during the process.

“They couldn’t resist getting to know each other that bit better during their time in the house.

“Afterwards they kept things going for a while, but relations have cooled off between them since ­filming ended.”

Jade and James are among 18 candidates competing to secure Lord Sugar’s £250,000 investment when the show returns to BBC1 at 9pm on Wednesday next week.

Bosses were last night tight-lipped about the fling. A spokeswoman said: “There isn’t any comment from the show or candidates.”

James and Jade aren’t the first contestants to pair off on the show.

Last year’s contestants Jessica Cunningham and Courtney Wood started dating after the show, while former winners Dr Leah Totton and Mark Wright reignited their romance earlier this year.
