Jordan was part of the original lineup of the first series of Love Island and fans watched on as the tattooed hunk found love with fellow contestant Zoe Basia Brown. 

He and Zoe – who bares a similar resemblance to Sheridan – were notoriously known for getting steamy away from the cameras in the bathroom of the hideaway, with Jordan appearing to seduce his ex-flame by boasting about a ‘big blue spider’ that he had wanted her to see. 

Speaking to The Sun about his tryst with Sheridan, Jordan claimed that the duo had watched scenes of him making a move on Zoe on the show, before retreating to The Moorside star’s bedroom.

‘That was when I made my move… I could tell she fancied me,’ he insisted.

Jordan claims he first made contact with Sheridan in July 2015 after she contacted him through social media. 

He alleged they watched re-runs of his time on Love Island, and ‘starstruck’ Jordan had asked to watch a clip of Sheridan accepting her BAFTA in 2013 for her role in Mrs Biggs.

He claimed he was ‘fascinated’ with the star and eventually ended up sleeping with Sheridan, adding: ‘We started to kiss and undress each other – we had sex just the once.

‘I was just starstruck and a bit nervous talking to her as she’s a big deal and I’m a fan.’ 

Despite their dalliance, he admits that while he had enjoyed a handful of phone conversations with Sheridan after meeting, their paths had never crossed again. 

MailOnline have contacted a representative for Sheridan.

After striking up a romance with model Zoe onscreen, Jordan had dated her for just five months following their time together on Love Island before going their separate ways. 

While she has stepped out of the limelight and removed her presence from social media, Jordan appears to have become a club promoter over in Marbella. 

Sheridan, meanwhile, has been starring in West End musical Funny Girl, with the theatre production currently touring across the UK. 

She appears as Fanny Brice in the show, but last month was forced to pull out of the hugely popular show as it landed in Bradford, following her mumps diagnosis.

Sheridan previously pulled out of shows during its West End run at London’s Savoy Theatre in May 2016, with ‘stress’ and exhaustion’ cited as causes for her absence, but had returned to the stage two months later on July 8.

The acting talent is next due to reprise her role in August at the Manchester Palace Theatre.
