Big Brother winner Jordan Sangha has finally addressed his feud with fellow former housemate Trish Balusa.
Jordan bonded with previous fan-favourite Trish during their time in the house when the show made a comeback on ITV2 in October and November this year.
But it seemed the pair were no longer close as the lawyer, 26, appeared to take a step back from the stay-at-home mother, 33, after the show.
It was reported that Jordan did not follow Trish on Instagram after being crowned champion and Trish was said to have unfollowed him in return, leading to speculation the pair ended their friendship.
And Jordan addressed any difficulties between the pair this week after he was quizzed by his fans on social media.

He said: ‘Re the stuff between Trish and me: Trish is a good person but it’s something we’re going to work out in our own time – it’s a private matter.’
Jordan appears to have the support of his boyfriend Henry Southan, who he met on the show, as Henry appears to also have now unfollowed Trish on Instagram.
It comes after Trish’s old ‘racist and homophobic’ social media posts resurfaced following her shock eviction last month.
Her historic tweets referring to minority groups, in which she made homophobic, racist and ableist comments, were uncovered after her exit.
She was subsequently removed from the spin-off show Big Brother: Late & Live and was the only housemate not to be invited to the final.
In addition producers are investigating the third party hired to trawl over housemates’ social media before they enter the show to search for problematic posts, to discover why the tweets were not found.
At the time, a spokesperson for Big Brother told The Sun of the investigation: ‘This weekend, we have been made aware of concerning historical tweets.
‘We are currently looking into why they were not identified by the independent supplier we engage to review the digital footprint of potential Housemates as part of our pre-checks.’

Trish then broke her silence after the scandal, posting an apology statement to her social media feed.
The ex housemate wrote: ‘I’m aware that some very concerning old tweets of mine have re-surfaced, and I would like to sincerely apologise for the harmful stereotypes I perpetuated and the pain I have caused to the marginalised communities and groups of people mentioned.
‘There are no excuses for the ignorance that I showed and I am deeply disappointed, embarrassed and ashamed that I once made such comments. I have come a very long way since by educating myself and being educated by others on the impact and harm those views cause.’
The comments were especially impactful to viewers as Trish accused the other housemates of micro-aggressions during her time in the house.
She added in the statement: ‘It is part of the reason why I am so passionate about standing up for others and holding myself to a high standard of responsibility and accountability for my actions.
‘I appreciate the support you’ve all given me on the show and I understand you feel disappointed.
‘I know apologies can seem convenient but I mean it from the bottom of my heart: I am truly sorry. I hope it is possible for you to offer me grace and believe people can change.

‘I am committed to being the person I am now, the person you have known my as – someone who speaks up, stands for what they believe in and always open to growth and accountability.’
The posts from 2012 were only discovered following Trish’s exit as during their time in the house all contestants set their social media profiles to private.
She wrote following her exit: ‘Going on big brother was actually one of the best decisions I’ve made. That experience has taught me soooo much.’
Her original Twitter account has since been deleted – although the statement has now popped up under another username as has been posted to her Instagram profile.
