That's just not cool.

He then put on an American accent and said: "Hello guys, David Gest here. I've been in Lanzarote for the last few months and nobody knows."

Jez then captioned the video: "Miss this dude so much" along with a heart and a crying with laughter emoji.

Uh, we don't really find it funny mate.

Twitter users were also quick to take to social media to air their disgust with Steph Davis' ex.

One user wrote: "Can't believe @JezzaMcConnell has posted a snapchat pretending to be David Gest. Some 'friend'. Such a disrespectful waster. Embarrassment."

Another called him "vile" and "disgraceful".
