Vanessa also added: “Anyone who has seen the video will know how vile and disgusting it is. And most importantly that it’s not me.

“It’s quite clear the person in it looks absolutely nothing like me.”

“You know what people can be like - they like to jump on the bandwagon as soon as they hear a rumour,” she continued, reports The Scottish Sun.

The site also adds how Kyle’s older sister, Sonia, said: “I can 100 per cent say this isn’t my sis n law.”
