He hinted that Mel B was trying it on with him, and enraged, she swore back at him.

The drama all started when the show’s host Keith Lemon enquired after Joey’s former Australian model girlfriend Lorena Medina.

Mel B then jumped in and mentioned that Joey was fishing around to see who was single the last time they appeared on the show together.

She said: “I wanted to ask about that because apparently you’re single now.

Awkward laughter

“Because the last time you were on the show and the cameras were turned off, you was telling me how much you were into your girl and this, that or the other.

“But you did keep on asking who on the panel was single.”

This was followed by awkward laughter from the audience.

Keith then turned directly to Joey to ask him if it was true that he was single.

When Joey shyly replied that he was, Mel jumped in again to ask him if it was true that he had stayed at Rita Ora’s house recently.

‘Mel B was sticking it on me!’

Joey looked distinctly awkward as Keith then teased him: “What are you saying?”

He then mumbled: “Nothing really, she a sort. Yeah, she’s a sort.”

Clarifying the situation, Keith asked: “You were round her house?”, and Joey replied: ‘Yeah, no, we’re just friends.”

When Keith suggested that Mel was showing an unusual amount of interest in Joey’s love life, Mel protested her innocence.

“‘Oi, Mel B was sticking it on me, trust!” Joey replied.

It was then that Mel B delivered the four letter riposte.

It looked as if the panel were going to move on to the game – but then Keith joked that it was called “Joey and Mel getting off together, let’s play!”
