STEPHANIE Davis has made her feelings clear - Jeremy is the one for her.

The Prescot actress has caused a stir in the Celebrity Big Brother house with her flirtations with Irish-born Jeremy McConnell despite having a boyfriend, Sam Reece, on the outside.

Obviously Sam’s not right for me and I need to sort it when I get out

After declaring her love for Sam, saying she wanted to marry him, she has realised how strong her feelings were for Jeremy.

Health guru Gillian McKeith entered the house on Tuesday night to purify the housemates and she slapped a Jeremy ban on Stephanie.

But she could not keep away, running straight into her housemate’s arms for a cuddle and, later, yet another fumble under the covers.

Breaking down in tears the 22-year-old revealed earlier she needed to be single and to end her relationship with Sam, as he was “not right for her.”

She told Jeremy: “Obviously Sam’s not right for me and I need to sort it when I get out.”

Housemates were disappointed that the former Hollyoaks actress could not keep away, as she would fail the task.

Gillian scolded the star, saying: “If you have a boyfriend, you can’t really expect to be carrying on with someone else and feel good about it. You need some self-discipline.”

Stephanie admitted that she felt trapped in the situation and didn’t know what to do, adding: “I don’t want to hurt anyone. I’ve just wanted to be loved.”

But Sam still appears to keep a dignified silence.

The only reference Sam did make to the split was in reply to a Twitter message that congratulated him on his “dignity and silence”.

A friend wrote: “dignity and silence during adversity are not easy but you manage it. Good chat today brother! You lucky man LA.”

To which Sam replied: “Thanks for the support brother!!”

I’m a Celebrity winner Vicky Pattison, who is Sam’s friend, has also revealed she believed he won’t be at the live eviction shows to greet her.
