The pair appeared to go public on social media...
Let’s face it, former Celebrity Big Brother star Jeremy McConnell has faced a very rocky love life in the past.
Following a turbulent relationship with ex Stephanie Davis on CBB, the pair welcomed their son Caben-Albi in February 2017 before eventually splitting for good just a few weeks later.
But after various flings with other women, Irish model Jez reportedly sparked up a new romance with none other than his lawyer.
According to The Mirror, the reality star had been getting close with Katie McCreath for a while now but things have recently been kicked up a notch with Jez announcing their relationship to his friends.
But on Wednesday the reality star has flat out denied that he’s got a new girlfriend, assuring his 528,000 Instagram followers: ‘I am 100 per cent single regardless of any articles’.
Jez’s statement comes after it was reported that he took Katie over to Ireland to meet his friends.
‘Jeremy’s mates were shocked’, an insider told The Mirror.
‘Katie is really pretty but she isn’t the usual model type Jeremy goes for. They were mates at first but after a few cosy nights in the pair began sleeping together. Now it appears they are officially an item.’
Jeremy recently shared a snap with Katie on social media which sees the pair cuddling up with the letters ‘Qpp1 Qpp0,’ written entirely over their faces. Hmm…
Katie was Jeremy’s lawyer following his arrest for assaulting Steph last year and has reportedly been advising him on his TV comeback following his release from jail in December.
A source told The Sun at the time: ‘Jeremy moved in with Katie shortly after leaving prison. He’s even got a dog with her and knows her family and friends well.
‘They’ve gone to watch Aston Villa and have been on nights out together.
‘He is really close to her and she’s been helping him work out how to build up his public personality again. He thinks of Katie as the person that rescued him and will help make him famous again.’
