Celebrity Big Brother’s Jeremy McConnell and Stephanie Davis are planning to move in together, marry, have children - and even get matching tattoos.
The two are back together after briefly splitting over the weekend, with the Prescot actress explaining that there had been a “misunderstanding”.
I was having a Bridget Jones moment, he was angry at me because he thought I ended it, which I understand how it came across - a misunderstandingStephanie Davis
The 22-year-old was meant to appear on ITV’s Loose Women on Monday alongside former Mr Ireland McConnell for their first joint interview, but both former Celebrity Big Brother housemates cancelled at the last minute.
At the time, a spokesman for McConnell confirmed the split and said: “He cares really deeply for Steph; however, the pressure of the relationship was just too much. He really wishes it could have worked out and he wishes Steph the very best for the future.”
But appearing together on the panel show on Friday, the couple laughed off the incident.
McConnell, 26, explained that they had a miscommunication after he was out at a PA (public appearance) in Edinburgh and Davis was on a night out in Liverpool.
The former Hollyoaks star told viewers: “I said, basically, ‘I can’t do this any more’. But meaning, like, us being apart, so busy, and then all the press that’s been released about people coming forward to try and sell stories which aren’t true, and about him taking selfies and them trying to say he cheated when he didn’t.
“We’re tired, we’ve not stopped, and I said ‘I can’t do this’ - but obviously because we had both been out, he took it as like I had ended it with him.
“So he was like, that’s it, I can’t believe it, I’ve been mugged off. But I didn’t mean that.
“And then I was having a Bridget Jones moment, he was angry at me because he thought I ended it, which I understand how it came across - a misunderstanding.”
McConnell joked: “If I was looking at that from the outside like everyone is, and they look at us, I would say ‘what a bunch of muppets’. That’s what I would honestly say.”
The two confirmed that they had plans to live together, with Davis saying: “We want to have a base,” and hoped for perhaps three children at some point in the future.
The couple, who met in the Celebrity Big Brother house in January, are also planning to get matching tattoos together the next week.
They will be inked with the lyric from the Oasis song Live Forever.
McConnell said: “I’ve obviously went out, I’ve done the single life. I stand by my word, I mean what I say and say what I mean ...
“People have been saying: ‘showmance’, I’m using her to get famous, she’s using me. But we’re both very matched in what we done.
“We’d probably be doing better if we were single.”
