CBB runner-up on her Irish romance
10 Feb 2016 07:07
Celebrity Big Brother runner-up Stephanie Davis has said that she is trying to take her burgeoning romance with Irish housemate Jeremy McConnell step by step.
-
The ex-Hollyoaks star generated plenty of headlines from her time with former Mr Ireland contestant McConnell in the Celebrity Big Brother house because she had a boyfriend, Sam Reece, on the outside.
-
Speaking on ITV's talk show Loose Women on Wednesday, Davis said she had split with Reece by sending him a text message the day after Celebrity Big Brother ended.
-
She conceded that how she had handled the end of the relationship "wasn't good" and agreed that she had been trying to convince herself that she was happy with Reece and that their relationship was in a good place when it wasn't.
-
"I've always been like a Bridget Jones," she admitted. "I've always just wanted to be loved - that's the top and bottom of it."

-
The 22-year-old, who movingly discussed her struggles with depression and self-worth during the interview, said that McConnell is the first person to love her for who she is and that he also makes her want to be "a better me".
-
Davis explained that she had been drawn to McConnell because of his "great outlook" on life despite having lost his mother, brother and sister within the space of 15 months as a teenager.

She revealed that he was flying over to see her after the show. "We're just going to talk about things. Obviously it's hard because I feel like everybody's got an opinion, whether we've got to get married or we've got to break up," she said.
-
"You know, who knows what's going to happen in the future? But right now I've found someone that, I can't believe I've found someone that actually loves me. I can't believe it."
