But is the Calvin Klein model telling the truth about his past?
A TOWIE rep confirmed to OK! Online Jamie had a meeting about starring on the show – and was shortlisted to appear on the reality show.
However, he was apparently turned down after previously taking part in E4 series, Taking New York.

“Jamie auditioned for Towie last year but wasn’t cast in the final line-up,” an insider told The Sun.
“Bosses didn’t believe he was right for the programme despite his reality show past.”
The source revealed Camilla’s pals are worried over the hunk’s intentions, after the pair got very close in the Hideaway recently.

“Jamie has always wanted to be on TV – it’s no surprise that he latched onto Camilla as soon as he entered the villa,” they added.
“He would do anything to further his chances and prolong his time on the show.”
The news comes after the lovebirds took their romance up a notch – and spent the night together in the Hideaway.

However, despite convincing their fellow Love Island stars they had been intimate to celebrate Camilla’s birthday, the pair revealed nothing had happened between them during their evening of privacy.
Speaking in the Beach Hut the following morning, the beauty gushed about her night with her new beau, explaining: “We had a really nice chat and a little cuddle, more than one cuddle would be the better way of describing it.
