See how the Celebrity Big Brother stars fell for each other

Stephanie Davis and Jeremy McConnell became the talk of the nation when their love blossomed on screen during their time in the Celebrity Big Brother house.

Right from the start their relationship was controversial – but how will it all pan out post-CBB?


Our gallery charts Steph and Jez’s love story in pictures, from their first flirtations to their shocking intimate antics and life after reality TV.

Stephanie Davis enters the Celebrity Big Brother house on 5 January 2016 as a taken woman.

The former Hollyoaks actress is dating male model Sam Reece and declares that she’s practically married to her man. Meanwhile fellow housemate Jeremy is free and single.

Soon Steph and Jez start to bond and they quickly become inseparable in the house. They even share a bed and shock viewers when they kiss and cuddle between the sheets.

Sam reveals via Twitter on 11 January that he will ‘no longer be supporting’ Steph and it sparks speculation that he’s dumped her. He later clarifies that they’re still together and he simply won’t be supporting her on social media.

Steph gets upset thinking about Sam’s reaction to the scenes with Jeremy but it doesn’t stop the housemates from continuing their flirtation.

Irish model Jez tells Steph they need to ‘cool it’ but shortly afterwards they use the word ‘love’ for each other. Blimey.

On 17 January the pair get VERY flirty and joke about tying the knot during a cheeky bit of banter before ending up in the snug together.

Meanwhile Sam keeps quiet about the controversy on the outside. There are rumours that he’ll confront his girlfriend by entering the CBB house but this doesn’t happen.

Jen tells Steph he loves her on 19 January and adds: ‘I don’t care what people think.’

After continued flirting, Steph says that Sam isn’t right for her during an emotional moment on 26 January and there’s even speculation that they’ve had sex in the house a couple of days later during some noisy late-night shenanigans.

Jez is evicted on 29 January but he and Steph enjoy a romantic reunion when she reaches the final on 5 February.

They quickly become an item, with Steph revealing she’s ended things with Sam by text, and soon Jeremy posts a loved-up selfie of them kissing.

‘Drinking guiness with my girlfriend @Stephdavis77,’ he posts. Awww.

Despite saying they’re thinking about marriage – as well as being spotted shopping for rings – Steph and Jeremy soon have some trouble in paradise.

The pair unfollow each other on Twitter in late February amid rumours of a split and Jeremy then confirms on 22 February that the relationship is over due to the ‘pressure’ of it all.
