Has she actually made an application yet?
Not yet - she is about to make a visa application under Tier 4 (Student) - she will start to complete relevant forms online next week. The form does not require a UK address/ accommodation details to be given, however I am sure this will be a question asked by the immigration officer. Also the Tier 4 visa application form does have a section at the end to include 'any other evidence/documentation you think necessary to support your application'.
Thanks for your questions.
The immigration officers would be unwise to find against the application on this basis as they have no proof. It is at their complete discretion however so it's conceivable, though not probably, that they could object.
If they did you would have to appeal and submit evidence (ie sworn statements, other corroboratinig evidence) supporting your claim that you are not romantic partners. This would probably suceed given that presumably the UKBA would not be able to produce evidence to the contrary.
I would not even tackle the point by pre-emption, if you do this might raise their suspicions that you are protesting too much.
Make the application, see if they reject on this basis. If they do appeal the decision.
