Stephanie Davis is "so proud" of Jeremy McConnell for seeking help in rehab.
The Irish heartthrob is set to check into a treatment facility on Monday (03.04.17) for six weeks in order to beat his addiction to drugs and alcohol, and his on/off girlfriend has admitted she's got faith that he'll be able to tackle his demons once and for all and is so happy that he's finally decided to do this for her and their two-month-old son Caben.
Taking to her Twitter account this morning, she said: "Today is the day. I'm so proud of you for finally doing this. Do it for me and Caben but most importantly... Do it for your self. I know you got this now.Say goodbye to your demons &start a new lease of life with happiness.I have every faith in you (sic)."
Jeremy announced he was leaving to seek help on his Instagram account on Sunday (02.04.17) afternoon and blamed his behaviour on his inability to handle fame.
He wrote: "I want to leave this last message here for people to maybe get a better understanding of who I am as a person. I know a lot of people are sick of reading stories etc about me and my life and have a huge dislike for me, for the record nobody dislikes myself more that me. I never once have used my misfortunes in life for sympathy or excuses as a lot of people have had really tough lives, the fact I'm in the public eye just exposes them a lot more than others.
"I'm not perfect and I acted in a way that has been irresponsible a lot of which I feel was self-reflection. I've let family, friends, management and work down. I just hope I can wipe a clean slate and come back with a second chance.
'Sometimes in this world when you're low and you don't really feel like you have anyone and people's opinion on you are not really who you are. It's tough to try and survive. I punished myself more than anyone could. I always said I never cared what people thought about me but deep down it's been that supportive comment or Instagram or Twitter that's made me feel a lot better.
"The people who know me know I'm a good guy and have a massive heart. I just never handle fame, money or actions very well and got lost in a downward spiral. It's something I'm about to fix and never look back on. But I've learnt from my mistakes, this will be my last message for a while. I've decided to take the appropriate action for myself and my new family and that you for everyone's support and to a new lease of life (sic)"
Jeremy and Stephanie - who got together last January after they met in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house but split shortly afterwards following a series of blazing rows - rekindled their relationship a few weeks after their little one was born into the world in January 2017.
However, although everyone was hoping their reunion was good this time, the pair seemingly split again earlier this month when Jeremy allegedly assaulted his former flame while he was residing at her home in Liverpool.
The model was taken into police custody at a Merseyside police station in North West England a few days after the alleged incident for questioning.
A spokesperson for the station said: "Following a report of an assault at an address in Stephenson Grove, Rainhill, a man has this morning (16.03.17) been arrested.
"A 27-year-old man from Liverpool city centre has been arrested on suspicion of assault and criminal damage after voluntarily attending a police station on Merseyside. He remains in police custody for questioning."
Jeremy was later released from custody but it's not yet known whether he was charged with assault and criminal damage.
