Jeremy McConnell's friends want him to return to rehab after he was found asleep on a park bench following a wild night out in London
Jeremy McConnell's friends have begged him to return to rehab after he was spotted sleeping on a park bench following a wild night out in London earlier this week.
The 27-year-old hunk - who sought professional help earlier this year for his addiction to drugs and alcohol - sparked fears he'd fallen off the wagon again after he partied up a storm at the Sixty6 Magazine Summer launch party at Dstrkt nightclub on Wednesday evening (21.06.17), and it looks like they were right to be concerned as he was found the next morning looking "dirty and dishevelled" on a random bench in the capital.
A source told the Mirror Online: "We are all so worried about him, the park bench is a new low. He looked dirty and dishevelled, and reeked of booze. We want him to go back to rehab, we are publicly urging him to get on a plane as soon as possible. No one can control him at the moment - and its devastating because he did so well."
Although it's apparent the former 'Celebrity Big Brother' star is struggling with his demons again, his management have refused to comment on his "illness" but are doing all they can to get him the "help" he needs in order to make a recovering.
A representative for Jeremy said: "We will not be commenting on Jeremy's illness. His well-being is our main concern. We are working with the relevant professionals to provide him all the support he needs."
The heavily-inked heartthrob's wild night out comes just two weeks after he relapsed following a blazing row with his on/off girlfriend Stephanie Davis, 24, in Liverpool.
He said just days ago: "It was totally my fault and there are no excuses for what I did. I relapsed. When I pick up a drink or put up a tweet it's self-sabotage, it's self-harming.
"When I sense fear I tend to strike out instead of being able to deal with things.
"I'm very insecure. I'm scared of people leaving me. If I felt like Steph was going to leave me I would do something out of anger, like in the past. There's no excuse, but a lot of my behaviour is irrational and I am working hard to change that."
Jeremy spent six weeks in rehab in March and, upon his release, he vowed never to pick up a bottle again for the sake of the pair's six-month-old son Caben-Albi.
