Stephanie Davis has been left devastated after her now ex-boyfriend Jeremy McConnell confessed to cheating on her the night before she left the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house last month, having consistently denied doing so until now.
A close friend of the 22 year old former ‘Hollyoaks’ actress spoke to MailOnline on Friday (March 4th) and described Stephanie’s mood as “shell shocked”, and that the news has “smashed her confidence into a million pieces”.
“Jeremy has point blank denied this until his TV appearance and so it was a massive shock to her when he appeared and announced that without giving her any warning,” the source said.
They were said to be moving in together and shopping for rings, but Jeremy McConnell and Stephanie Davis’ relationship has taken a confusing turn.
Are Jeremy McConnell and Stephanie Davis still together? It appears the couple aren’t even sure themselves, as both have given conflicting reports over the status of their relationship.

If at first you don't succeed, dust yourself off and try again. Rylan Clark may not have the talent to write timeless lyrics like that, or even win The X-Factor, but he proved he had what it takes to entertain Celebrity Big Brother views to finally win a reality show.
Speaking to host Brian Dowling, Clark said: "Honestly, through the past year, people have been picking up the phone for me and I really appreciate it." He's not wrong, but given that he's appeared in two high-profile shows, it's not the greatest of achievements. But fair play to Rylan, after the disappointment of an X-Factor boot out, it must have taken a lot to thrust himself back into the public eye. Perhaps a lot of money, we don't know. "They hated me three months ago. I've been the biggest fan of Big Brother." And Speaking about his nemesis Speidi, he said: 'I don't have any ties to Heidi and Spencer, but they're a genuine couple. I wish them the best of luck in life. They are absolutely made for each other.
"The reason I came on this show is to show people who got me wrong. You can call me whatever you want, but don't ever call me fake," he added. "One thing they gave me in the house was a headache."
