Jeremy McConnell And Stephanie Davis Split: Model ‘Went Awol For 24 Hours' Shortly Before Break-Up

Details of Jeremy McConnell and Stephanie Davis’s apparent split have begun to emerge, following his hints that they’re no longer love’s young dream.

The couple enjoyed a whirlwind romance in the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house, and even spoke about marriage and kids before their current social media silence.

Now, a source has told the Mirror that Jeremy’s behavior played a role in the split, claiming that he “went AWOL for a day”, leaving former ‘Hollyoaks’ star Steph in a panic.

"She couldn't get hold of him for 24 hours and was really worried, especially with the recent rumours he cheated on her after a night out,” they said.

“He was at a personal appearance in Fife at Kitty's nightclub and she panicked when she couldn't reach him."

Just last week, shortly after a super cringey, loved-up OK! magazine spread, Jeremy hinted that things weren’t going too well, by tweeting - and then deleting - a cryptic message.

“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,” it read.

On Sunday, numerous outlets noticed that the duo had unfollowed each other on Twitter.

Steph has remained silent on the matter, and her most recent post on the social-networking site is a retweet of a quote card, with the words: "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.”
