Jeremy McConnell launches vicious attack on Scarlett Moffatt

Reality stars worked together on MTV show in 2014

We liked his cheeky Irish ‘bants’ in the Celebrity Big Brother house, but Jeremy McConnell really needs to keep his trap SHUT.

The reality wannabe sure is chatting a lot of rubbish at the moment.

But he’s gone a step too far now, slating the nation’s sweetheart, Scarlett Moffatt, in a completely unprovoked attack.

The mega-inked model told heatworld:  “I hate her. I just think she’s manipulative.

“I don’t think she’s a genuine person. I think she knows how to play certain situations.

“If you were there for six weeks in the jungle, you’d be found out. But luckily she’s playing a very clever game.”

Blimey, Jezza, who do you think you are – Katie friggin’ Hopkins?!

Scarlett had the misfortune – as it turns out – of brushing paths with Jeremy back in 2014 when both appeared on MTV reality show Beauty School Cop Outs.

And, put it this way, Jeremy didn’t seem to hate the Gogglebox star back then. The pair even locked lips after Scar declared of her ex co-star: “He’s the sexiest Leprechaun I’ve ever seen!”

Hmmm. With that in the knowledge bank, we can’t help but wonder if there is some jealousy when you compare the stellar success of Scarlett with his mediocre media presence.

This outburst comes in the wake of a frankly disgusting revelation about a former flame of his.

He appeared to accuse his ex Stephanie Davis of “s****ing herself” while out on a date with him.

Jeremy didn’t mention Steph by name, however the description seemed to fit the former Hollyoaks actress.

Jez was asked about the worst date he’d ever been on by Reveal magazine.

He answered: “I was seeing this girl for a while, and when we went for dinner, she s**t herself.

“She was wearing a white jumpsuit and the s**t came through. I won’t tell you who that was, but have a guess.

“I’m the type of person who wouldn’t mind if a girl s**t herself if I liked her.

“But, I didn’t want to sit there with s**t coming out of her a**e.”

Wow, he really is a charmer. Steph, who claims to be pregnant with Irishman’s child, is well shot of him by the sounds of this!

Stephanie’s rep showed good grace and humour, dismissing Jez’s story: “We have had to defend some pretty stupid stories over the past year but this is by far the most ridiculous and the least based on fact we have been approached with,” they said.

Simply put, it’s a load of absolute rubbish and categorically untrue.”

Button it, Jezza, while you still have a hope of a career.
