She caused quite the stir during her stint on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! after popping a painful pimple on Colin Fassnidge’s bare bottom.
But on Thursday, Jess Eva revealed she received a strange reaction to the incident upon leaving the jungle – with many women bizarrely seeing the move as an act of ‘seduction’.
Speaking on Studio 10, Jess, 36, said: ‘I didn’t realise that Colin was going to be somewhat of a sex symbol on the show.
Bizarre: On Thursday, Jess Eva revealed she received quite a strange reaction to popping a pimple on Colin Fassnidge’s bottom upon leaving the jungle – with many women bizarrely seeing the move as an act of ‘seduction’
‘I got DMs from women telling me to stay away from Colin, because they thought that I was trying to seduce him by popping his bottom pimple.’
Through laughter, she added: ‘I don’t know if that’s seductive… I always thought it was lingerie, but it turns out it was pimple popping!’
Jess shocked the nation last month as she poked around Colin’s backside to remove the pesky pimple after the chef called upon her for help.
‘OMG Jess popping the pimple in Colin’s a** crack,’ tweeted one viewer, while another wrote, ‘Oh god that pimple is all the way in there huh’.

Others were left disgusted by the scene, and branded it ‘unhygienic’.
‘Jess just popped a pimple on Col’s bum. Must be time to do the dishes?’ wrote one turned-off viewer.
After Colin, 45, was left unable to sit down, an enthusiastic Jess had volunteered to burst the pimple herself, saying: ‘Honestly, you’ll make an old woman very happy.’
But as Jess struggled to find the offending spot in the dark, Grant Denyer and Abbie Chatfield came over and held lights on Colin’s bare bottom.

‘Oh, it’s a beauty… Hang on, nearly finished… ‘Cause it’s so close into your crack,’ Jess told Colin as she got to work with her hands.
A bemused Grant, 43, began to laugh, prompting Colin to tell him: ‘Denyer, you shouldn’t be taking so much pleasure in this.’
But after Jess managed to pop the pimple, a clearly appreciative Colin planted a kiss on her forehead.
‘There’s people in here that have seen more than my actual family. Nothing in here is sacred. But look at this – I can sit down now. Problem solved,’ said Colin.
