The rep said: “Merseyside Police can confirm Jeremy McConnell, 27 years, of Boroimhe Laurels, Swords, Ireland has been charged with assault and criminal damage following an incident in Stephenson Grove, Rainhill on 9 March 2017.”

Jeremy and his girlfriend Steph, who share a son, Caben-Albi, together haven’t yet commented on the news, but the former Hollyoaks actress has tweeted about the paparazzi.

“The paps around the house and across the street need to seriously leave! This is disgusting. And the rubbish I’m reading. Absolutely vile!

The couple, who met in Celebrity Big Brother, have since made up and posed together for a family photo on Snapchat at the weekend.

She captioned the sweet photo: “Family Sundays”, alongside a heart emoji.
