Jeremy McConnell cools things off with Stephanie Davis on CBB

Stephanie Davis and Jeremy McConnell's relationship came to an end on Thursday night's 'Celebrity Big Brother' (21.01.16).

The former 'Hollyoaks' actress and the Irish model have formed a close friendship since entering the house, and have even ventured into the romance field - despite Stephanie having a long-term boyfriend in model Sam Reece on the outside.

But things came to a head on the latest episode of the show.

It all kicked off when Stephanie speculated that Sam could be making a surprise entrance to the house, with Gemma Collins then asking her: "Is Sam your boyfriend? He's fit!"

When Gemma continued to wax lyrical about Sam, who she had met during a night out at the Sugar Hut in Brentwood, Essex, she advised Stephanie: "You should definitely marry him!"

Seemingly unconcerned about the fact that Jeremy was just metres away, Stephanie replied: "I'm going to", before walking out of the room.

Holding his head in his hands, Jeremy then went to speak to John Patridge about the situation, with the ex 'EastEnders' actress telling him that he was being "mugged off" by Stephanie.

Jeremy then turned to his closest friends in the house, Scotty T and Megan McKenna, to ask their opinions.

Clearly pulling no punches, Megan replied: "Jeremy, I'm not going to lie, as soon as you're out of this house she is going to drop you like a sack of s**t."

Following the conversation, Jeremy decided to seek more advice in the Diary Room, explaining he was entirely confused by Stephanie's behaviour.

After having realised she had upset her beau, Stephanie sat on a cushion outside the Diary Room and waited for Jeremy to come out.

When he exited back into the main house, he asked a tearful Stephanie: "What are you doing?"

The actress told him she thought he had left, before going on to blame her fellow housemates for exacerbating the situation.

At that point, Jeremy snapped: "It's not them Steph, it's you."

He then told Stephanie he needed to have a cigarette and some time away from her, and would talk to her in the morning.

However, Stephanie still didn't give up and requested a goodnight hug from Jeremy - which he declined.
