Stephanie Davis breaks silence after Jeremy McConnell is released following assault allegations

According to The Sun 27-year-old Jez is forbidden from contacting Steph, 24, due to the ongoing police investigation following his arrest and the Irish model has returned home after staying in Liverpool near Steph and Caben for the past few weeks.

‘Stephanie and Jeremy have not been in contact since the arrest last week,’ a source says. ‘Jeremy’s gone back to Ireland as he needs to focus on himself before reuniting with Stephanie.

‘But it wasn’t long before Stephanie made contact with Jeremy by liking a photo of him with Caben on Instagram.

‘She’s since unliked the post but her olive branch didn’t go unnoticed by Jeremy.

‘They will talk over recent events when the time is right and the dust has settled.’

It comes after Jeremy was arrested as he arrived back in the UK from Ireland on 10 March following allegations he assaulted his former girlfriend and mother of his child.

A spokesperson for Merseyside police told MailOnline at the time: ‘A 27-year-old man arrested earlier today on suspicion of assault and criminal damage has been released pending a disposal decision.’

Steph was said to be ‘shaken and distressed’ after calling the police. Jeremy has denied any wrongdoing but a rep for the star says he’s ‘fully cooperating’ with the police in their investigations.

Since the news of the arrest Steph has been keeping quiet on social media but returned to Instagram earlier this week to share a cute new photo of two-month-old Caben.

‘My Ray Of Sunshine☀️Love waking up to this little face,’ the actress captioned the snap. ‘Makes me smile 💛 What Sundays are all about’
