The love fest continues in Celebrity Big Brother as Jeremy McConnell has confessed his true feelings for fellow housemate Stephanie Davis.
The two have become up close and personal during the show despite the former Hollyoaks star being in a long-term relationship outside the house.
In tonight’s episode, the former MTV star declared his love for the actress to her face and to Big Brother.
“I’m not a player, I’m a gentleman, despite flirting with his fellow contestant who he knows is in a relationship,” he said.

“I fancy you, I fancy her and what? What you going to do about it?”
Getting swept away with his feelings, the model admitted he recognises the controversy surrounding Stephanie’s beau, Sam Reece in the outside world.
“And I’ve been a **** and so what, I’ll get over it. It’s a f**king game show,” he explained.
“You put us in this s**t house and I find someone attractive. Yeah, I’ve fallen in love with her.”

Changing his tone, the 25-year-old got serious about his attraction to the 22-year-old – insisting the pair will look back on the experience admitting they “fell in love on TV”.
“You fall in love in a certain, weird place and you have a connection with people, it’s good. It makes you stronger. It’s something that we’re not going to do ever again,” he said.
“We’ll look back on this and say, ‘yeah, we fell in love on TV’. That’s what happened with me any way. It’s just another chapter in my life, innit?”
Close to tears after his emotional heart-to-heart, Stephanie pleaded with Jeremy to stop but he continued to tell her his true feelings.

“[The fact I’ve fallen in love with you on TV] is true though. I don’t care what people think,” he said.
“You know when you look at someone, your eyes don’t lie. I look at you and I want to look at you more.
“I’m like a ten-year-old kid looking at you now. Now that’s not normal. I’m 25 years old, do you know what I mean?” he explained.
“There’s something in you just like… I don’t know. And it’s not horny, it’s not like that. It’s literally just going on what your heart is talking to you, isn’t it?

“I still gravitate towards you. The worst day was when I wasn’t speaking to you,” he added.
The Sutton native finished their conversation insisting he’s thankful his true personality has been portrayed on the show – proving he’s not the player he was made out to be.
“A lot of people thought I was a player coming in. That’s not the case, I’m a gentleman,” he divulged.
The very honest confession comes days after Stephanie declared her love for him.
