Jeremy McConnell calls off flirting with Stephanie Davis
Jeremy McConnell has told Stephanie Davis she needs to stop flirting with him out of "respect" for her boyfriend.
The handsome model has had no trouble getting up close and personal with the axed 'Hollyoaks' actress, 22, during their time in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house.
But, after almost two weeks of kissing and cuddling in the infamous abode, the Irish hunk, 23, has decided they need to cool things off between them because it's unfair her beau Sam Reece, who is watching on the outside.
Taking the brunette beauty to one side, in scenes set to air tonight (14.01.16), Jeremy said: "We need to cool off all the touching, it's too much for me. I'll still be there for you, but I'm sick of it, I'm done. I'm bored of the cameras, I'm bored of it. People are watching it."
However, it seems the pair's decision to go their separate ways may have come a little too late as Stephanie's boyfriend Sam seemingly dumped her earlier this week, without informing her, after Jeremy said he was falling for her.
He wrote on Twitter: "Hi everyone, I will no longer be supporting Stephanie Davis... Thanks for all your support and love you have given me!! (sic)."
But it seems the hunk had a change of heart after he watched his naughty girlfriend crying her eyes out in the diary room while declaring her love for him, as he later backtracked and confirmed they're still a "couple."
He said: "I would like to clarify that Stephanie and I continue to remain a couple irrespective of comments on social media surrounding our relationship that I've 'dumped' [her] as she still remains in the house.
"Monday's comment was me withdrawing my support via social media for the time being. I will be talking to her when she leaves the 'Big Brother' house."
