Stephanie Davis forthcoming memoir has been axed for the time being because she doesn't have time to finish it
Stephanie Davis' explosive autobiography has reportedly been "scrapped" - for now.
The 24-year-old actress' tell-all memoir was meant to drop in just a few weeks' time but publishers have decided to axe the release after she edited out the details of her turbulent relationship with Jeremy McConnell following their reunion this year.
A source told The Sun Online: "With just weeks to go before the autobiography is due out, Steph's life and relationship with Jeremy has dramatically improved ... With the June deadline looming there was very little juicy detail left, and Steph simply doesn't have the time to rewrite everything, so the publishers decided to scrap it."
The couple rekindled their romance four weeks after the birth of their now-three-month-old son Caben after a paternity test revealed that the heavily-inked hunk was in fact the little one's biological father following nine months of denying responsibility.
Their relationship came crashing down again a few weeks later following allegations of domestic abuse but they've since patched up their differences and Jeremy has now decided to seek treatment in rehab for his drugs and alcohol addiction.
Due to the fact they're giving things another go for the sake of their son, Stephanie decided she needed to erase all the "gory details" she initially included in the autobiography in order to "protect" the 27-year-old heartthrob from criticism.
The insider explained: "It was supposed to be an explosive exposé, however now Jeremy has entered rehab and is keen to make amends with Steph and be a great father to Caben-Albi, she feels that she needs to protect him so has edited out all of the gory details - and in turn all the best bits."
The former 'Hollyoaks' star struck up a relationship with Jeremy while they were both competing on 'Celebrity Big Brother' in January 2016 but things hit the rocks just weeks after they left the infamous abode following rumours of infidelity.
Stephanie then found out she was pregnant but Jeremy refused to believe she was carrying his child until little Caben entered the world on January 13.
Throughout Stephanie's pregnancy, the pair consistently bad mouthed one another during television interviews and on social media but the brunette beauty offered out an olive branch in February when she agreed to have a paternity test done on Caben.
Although publishers have decided to pull the plug on the autobiography, it's not thought it's forever as they want to give Stephanie more time to ensure it's perfect.
A source said: "Steph's a busy working mum and just doesn't have the time she needs to dedicate attention that the book deserves. She is very aware of the size of this project and she is still going through a major part of her own story, so she'd rather let her loyal fans know the outcome once life is slightly more constant.
"Her life is completely different now from when she started writing last year, and while she Jez may be reunited the story is still evolving, so she agreed with the publishers to postpone it's release."
There's currently no new date for the release of her autobiography.
