She said that she was single when she headed into the Celebrity Big Brother house earlier this month.
But it has since emerged that Jess Impiazzi married Denny Solomona in a secret whirlwind wedding during their winter getaway to Las Vegas in November 2016.
The reality star, 28, who is currently in the Celebrity Big Brother house, admitted to The Sun ahead of the show that she is waiting for the divorce papers after they decided to put an end to their marriage just nine months later.

Denny had got down on one knee outside the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas following a romantic dinner at Casa Di Amore on the iconic city strip.
Jess confessed she was surprised herself when the former flames decided against a big white wedding and embarked on their trip down the aisle in Las Vegas.
She told the newspaper: ‘I thought we would have a normal wedding, but before I could blink we were walking down the aisle in the same place Britney got married.’
However, the Celebrity Big Brother housemate claimed she couldn’t cope when the sports star returned to his partying ways back at home.
‘I was so happy. But when we got back to England he got back into bad old habits and started going out partying again,’ she told the publication.

The Ex On The Beach star announced their split just days before stepping foot inside the Celebrity Big Brother house – yet she claimed at the time that the pair were just engaged, not married.
It has now been revealed the former flames went their separate ways for good in August 2017 after just nine months of marriage.
Jess was first linked to the Castleford player in 2015 when they were spotted kissing after a romantic dinner together in May.
The pictures confirmed her split from Blue singer Simon Webbe, which was a fleeting romance in 2015.

Things moved quickly between Denny and Jess who later moved in together and even bought a place of their own, before briefly splitting in June.
When they rekindled the flame, Jess said: ‘We were only dating for about six months. I’ve not really met anyone since and that’s really had an affect on my heart.’
Kelly Brook’s ex David McIntosh, Geordie Shore lothario Gary Beadle, Simon Webbe and model Rogan O’Connor have all been linked to Jess since she burst onto screen on MTV’s Ex On The Beach.
