Caitlyn Jenner’s friend Sophia Hutchins DENIES romance with I’m a Celeb’s star and says they’re ‘family’

Sophia Hutchins has insisted she and I’m A Celebrity star Caitlyn Jenner are more like “family” and nothing “romantic” is going on between the pair.

As she opened up about her relationship with 70 year old Caitlyn on Loose Women, 23 year old Sophia said the age gap between the two means they are more like “family” than lovers.

Speaking to Ruth Langsford and the other Loose Women panellists on the ITV show via video link, she said: “I would say that we are partners in every way.

“We do business together, I still manage her career while running my own company. We have dogs together, we live together, really I think it comes down to that we are family at the end of the day.

She continued: “I think that’s been a really special connection, I don’t think you’ll find that with a lot of people and we were both really lucky to find that family connection.

“Obviously we have such a big age difference so there’s not really a romantic sense to that relationship.

“I would say it comes down to a really good partnership in business and when it comes down to personal it really is family.”

Despite the pair not being romantic, Sophia admitted she “didn’t know what she would do” if she was alone in their shared home.

She said: “I travel a lot for my work so I haven't really even been home much, which is quite nice because I haven’t really noticed, but I’ve been home the last three days and it’s like, ‘Oh my goodness I don’t know what I would do if I was here alone all the time, it’s kind of scary’.”

But, Caitlyn’s “closest friend” Sophia wishes her nothing but luck while she is in the jungle.

She didn’t reveal if she had plans to fly over to Australia to greet Caitlyn when she eventually leaves the jungle.

When asked by Ruth Langsford if we can expect to see her flying over to Australia along with the other celebrities’ friends and family to greet the campmates when they live she said: “I can’t tell you that, my goodness!”

Ruth then replied: “You can’t blame a girl for asking!” And Sophia quipped: “Good try!”

She’s yet to get on a plane Down Under just yet, as the business owner said she’s got every faith her friend will win the series.

“I have money on Caitlyn winning the show, I have no doubt Caitlyn will win the show, absolutely,” she said. “I think she just needs to keep it up, keep it going, tough it out.”
