Jailed rape suspect Jack Tweed has reportedly claimed his innocence,while he awaits trial.

Jade Goody’s widower has been put behind bars after a 19-year-old clubber claimed that Tweed raped her as his pal joined in.

The 22-year-old is said to have attacked the girl at a party at his home after inviting the teenager and two of her female friends back to his rented house from a London nightspot in the early hours.

Tweed,who has apparently confessed he had been with the girl at the centre of the claim,purportedly made a tearful phone call to his pal from Pentonville prison in London,insisting he is innocent.

“His friend asked him if he was OK. Jack said,‘No,I’m f***ing not. I’m in Pentonville jail and I can’t believe that I am here. It’s all a nightmare,” the Mirror quoted a source as saying.

Tweed apparently added to the friend: “I can’t believe a girl has made an allegation like that against me and I have ended up here. I am totally innocent and that will be shown in time.”

He also reportedly said: “This is all so ridiculous…I have done nothing. I was with the girl,but no way did I rape her. When the police came to the house I could not believe it. I feel drained and really low. I haven’t slept since I was arrested.”

Tweed would be remanded in custody until September 21.
