He was dressed in jeans, a basketball vest and looked super tanned.

Talking to the Daily Star Online, a source said: “Jeremy left his mates partying as he set off back home on Sunday afternoon.”

His rep said: “I can confirm Jeremy cut his holiday short and arrived back into Dublin airport this morning.”

Last Friday, Stephanie Davis gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. It is the first ever Celebrity Big Brother baby.

Steph’s ex Jez came under fire over the weekend for filming drunken Snapchats on his holiday, but it looks like he’s finally stepping up.

Tweeting on Saturday, a day after the little one was born, he wrote: “I am delighted that Steph has safely had the baby, of course if he is my son I will absolutely step up and do what I can to support him.”

He still seems adamant that the baby might not be his…

Last week, an insider told The Daily Star: “He has told friends he really wants to sort the situation out and find out if he is the father once and for all.

“Regardless of the media circus which surrounds him and Steph, if he is the dad of her child, then he is determined to step up to the plate and support her.”

Whether Steph will want him to be part of her son’s life is another story!

The 23-year-old has already shared her first photo of the tiny tot, and teased her Twitter followers with a glimpse of his tiny hand.

Alongside the intimate black and white snap, she wrote: “The day my world became complete. I’ve been overwhelmed and so in love with you. Words could never describe.”

The former Hollyoaks actress added: “Thank you for all your support.”
