MTV bosses have reportedly ditched the reality star from appearing on the show

Jeremy McConnell has faced some pretty turbulent times in his love life over the last year, which is exactly why MTV bosses were desperate to sign him up to this year’s Ex On The Beach.

However after the Irish model was arrested following allegations he assaulted former girlfriend Stephanie Davis, Jez has reportedly been dropped from the show’s line-up.

According to The Sun the programme bosses ‘had no choice’ but to axe the CBB star following accusations that he had assaulted the mother of his baby son Caben-Albi, as a source revealed: ‘MTV bosses wanted to get Jeremy onboard for years and finally managed to sign him up.

‘But his legal troubles have left them no choice but to axe him from the cast. The show will now go ahead without him.’
