The couple have reportedly split - just days after being spotted shopping for rings

Stephanie Davis and Jeremy McConnell were talking about marriage just a week ago but it looks like things might not be so rosy between them now.

The couple – who controversially fell for each other on Celebrity Big Brother when Steph had a boyfriend – sparked speculation of a split when they unfollowed each other on Twitter and their first TV appearance as an item, due to happen today on Loose Women, was cancelled.

Now Jeremy has confirmed that they HAVE broken up, though there’s been no word from Steph’s camp yet.

‘He cares really deeply for Steph however the pressure of the relationship was just too much,’ his spokesperson tells Metro. ‘He really wishes it could have worked out and he wishes Steph the very best for the future.’

To make it all even worse, today is Jez’s birthday. Not the best present in the world, eh?

It comes after rumours that the pair had been arguing and that this had led them to call it quits.

‘They’ve had a row and things have got pretty bad so they unfollowed each other after deciding it is over,’ a source tells MailOnline.

‘They were supposed to be going on Loose Women together to talk about their romance but they’ve had to shelve that for now.

‘They might be able to sort it out and then this will all be a little bit embarrassing but until then it’s anyone’s guess.’

Awkward. Steph, 22, has kept quiet about it all but recently shared a cryptic post on Twitter about love.

The quote reads: ‘When you first fall in love, it’s supposed to be awful.

‘Awful, uncertain, scary, wonderful, confusing, all at once.

‘That’s how you know it’s real. You have to care deeply. Passionately. That hurts.’

Hmmm, intriguing! Meanwhile Jeremy simply Tweeted about his birthday earlier today.

’26 today and off to Leeds,’ the Irish model Tweeted this morning.

It comes after Jez posted a mysterious message on Saturday night which he later deleted reading: ‘I have been the biggest mug. I’m sorry for the people who tried to warn me. But you live and learn. Onwards and upwards.’

Fans of the pair will be sad to hear about their split after watching their romance blossom on TV.

The pair became close friends on CBB before becoming an item after the show ended and Steph had split from model boyfriend Sam Reece.

But is this the end of Steremy for good?! We hope not!
