Stephanie Davis lashes out at Jeremy McConnell
Stephanie Davis has hit out at her ex-boyfriend Jeremy McConnell for challenging her to a DNA test live on television
Stephanie Davis can't believe Jeremy McConnell would "stoop so low to challenge" her to a paternity test live on national television.
The 26-year-old Irish hunk appeared on 'This Morning' on Wednesday (08.02.17) to have a DNA test done in order to find out once and for all whether he's the father of her three-week-old son Caben-Albi but, less than an hour after his on-screen appearance, the former 'Hollyoaks' star has lashed out at him for airing their dirty laundry in public so soon after she's given birth.
Taking to her Twitter account, the 23-year-old beauty uploaded the statement from her representatives that was read out on the brunchtime show and added: "It is upsetting to think that Jeremy would stoop so low to challenge the mother of his baby to a DNA test live on television when it was already in hand.
"This shows how little concern he has for Caben and this is already being dealt with privately. Caben and Stephanie have only been out of hospital for a few weeks, however after spending nine months denying that he is the baby's father, we cannot believe Jeremy has the audacity to turn the situation around and bring all of this very much into the media circus, on his terms only."
The brunette star also uploaded a series of screengrabs from tweets Jeremy sent out last year in which he denied he's the father of little Caben-Albi after he spent most of the interview today pleading that he's "never once" denied he's the little one's dad.
Jeremy wrote at the time: "She's not pregnant with my child, come on."
To which a fan - who goes by the handle Leann Lewis - replied: "Do you know that for definite as your child will be able to read press stories and things that have been said one day."
The heavily-inked heartthrob then added: "It's all lies. I've been told by her friends."
ITV carried out the paternity test this morning, which saw Jeremy's mouth swabbed, and the sample will now be sent off to the lab.
Host Phillip Schofield said: "ITV use a very reputable company so we've acted as a mediator here. We don't want to know the results, we don't want anything to do with it other than the fact you can say you've had the DNA test. The nurse came in this morning, that will now be sent off to the lab and will be held there securely."
However, Jeremy may still be kept in the dark as Stephanie - who wanted the hunk to sign an "unreasonable" contract in order to have the test done on her terms - still has to agree to have her newborn swabbed by the nurse at ITV to get the results.
The pair first started dating in January last year after they met in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house but, following a series of blazing rows once they left the abode, they decided to call it quits and have been at loggerheads ever since.
