‘The physical affection, the flirting made everything easy in there.

‘You know that saying where it’s like – you’re smart, but when it comes to matters of the heart and the people you find attractive, we can do some silly things.’

‘He’s not hard on the eyes!’ Kyle replied, to which Maria said: ‘We all know Joey is gorgeous.

‘I’ll tell you this – like most relationships in life, not everything has to be a long-term thing. He doesn’t have to be my husband, I can just have a nice time in there, that’s fine!’

Maria, who recently came out as bisexual, then discussed with Kyle and his co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson whether she had a preference between a romance with a male or female.

‘It’s just the person [for me], and it’s so interesting when people try and get their head around it like, “Would you do this, would you do that”.

‘Guys, I’m horny for who I’m horny for. There’s not much I can say!’

Maria was evicted from the series on Sunday night.  

Prior to her departure, things were heating up between herself and Joey for days, with the pair even sharing a steamy kiss under the covers.

During her exit interview, Maria didn’t seem too convinced it would materialise into anything more in future.

She told Dr Chris Brown: ‘Joey and I are friends, we’re friends.   

‘We’re flirty friends, and we agreed that the jungle under the microscope, it was just pushing things a little bit.

‘You never know, you never know. So we’ll just wait and see.’
