Stephanie Davis to team up with domestic abuse charities

Stephanie Davis is planning to team up with some domestic abuse charities after he ex-boyfriend Jeremy McConnell was found guilty of assaulting her earlier this week.

The former 'Beauty School Cop Out' star is expected to be handed his sentence later this week after a judge declared him guilty of beating the 24-year-old actress during a blazing row on March 9 at her home in Merseyside, Liverpool, earlier this week.

And, following a trying few months, the brunette beauty is ready to "rebuild" her life again and is hoping to front some campaigns to raise awareness about violence.

A representative for the former 'Hollyoaks' star said: "We are delighted with the decision in court and are pleased that justice has been done - we await the decision on Friday and the appropriate sentencing.

"Stephanie and her family would like to thank everyone for their support throughout this process which has been stressful and has put them all under massive pressure.

"Stephanie would like to thank her family, friends and team around her who have stuck with her and helped her to begin to rebuild her life.

"Stephanie now wishes to work with domestic violence and abuse charities to raise awareness and stop what has happened to her happening to other women in the UK."

The former 'Over the Rainbow' contestant broke down in tears in court on Monday (07.08.17) as she recalled how the 27-year-old reality TV star threw her around like a rag doll" because he thought she was having an affair with her pregnant best friend.

She said: "He was convinced I was having a lesbian affair with my pregnant friend, and the fireman across the road. He gets jealous. He was calling me a s**g, that I was fat and that no-one would ever want to touch me again.

"He put his thumb into the side of my gums, and that's when I really started to panic. He was having, what I know and what Jeremy knows as, psychotic episodes.

"He took my phone off me, and I was trying to get it off him and he was ragging me everywhere. He bit the inside of my arm."
