‘Celebrity Big Brother’ host Emma Willis has denied reports Stephanie Davis’ boyfriend is set to enter the house to confront her over her relationship with Jeremy McConnell Cooke, claiming it would be “inappropriate”.
The former ‘Hollyoaks’ star has confessed her romantic feelings towards her housemate, and the pair have been flirting on the show, despite her being in a relationship with model Sam Reece in the outside world.

Speculation has been rife that he would enter the house to address the situation, but Emma has claimed the reports are “untrue”.
Speaking on Nick Grimshaw’s Radio 1 Breakfast Show, she said: "I can't confirm that that is true. I believe that is very untrue.
"[Stephanie and Jeremy have] both been housemates, and I think to put in someone's boyfriend that's been watching the whole carry-on... as much as it's kind of compulsory TV for people that are ‘Big Brother’ fans and love that kind of thing, it would also be slightly inappropriate.
"Even we have boundaries, believe it or not."

However, it wouldn’t be the first time that Big Brother has pulled such a stunt.
Long-term fans of the show will remember that producers brought in civilian housemate Noirin Kelly’s boyfriend Isaac Stout, after she grew close to fellow contestant Siavash Sabbaghpour in 2009.

Sam has been left shocked by Stephanie’s behaviour with Jeremy in the house, and has already withdrawn his support for her.
He tweeted last week: “I will no longer be supporting Stephanie Davis... Thanks for all your support and love you have given me!!”
Sam later clarified his comments, adding: “I would never end a relationship over text or social media. I want to talk to Steph face to face.”
‘Celebrity Big Brother’ continues tonight at 9pm on Channel 5.
