Reality TV show ‘confirms’ it won’t be using disgraced Jeremy McConnell in new series

Fans had reportedly reacted badly to rumours he would be taking part

It’s been revealed that Jeremy McConnell will not be appearing on the upcoming series of Ex On The Beach.

The Mirror is claiming that it has seen emails from MTV which confirm the Irish model will not be taking part.

Rumours had begun to circulate that he would have a part in the show following his split from on-off partner Stephanie Davis.

However, this is not the case.

Fans of the show had reportedly reacted badly to rumours that the tattooed reality star was heading to the new series in March.

Some were shocked that he would do it after becoming a dad to son Caben-Albi.

One fan said: “I don’t understand how new dad Jeremy can go on TV. It’s a disgrace.”

“Why would a new dad leave his baby in the most precious time?” another added.

Last week, Jeremy was back in court for another incident – he was found hiding in a stranger’s home.

The troubled model had entered the woman’s house while drunk after allegedly being chased by two men from a party.

He pleaded guilty to trespassing.

Next week he begins 200 hours of unpaid community service , as part of his punishment for assaulting Steph.

He will also complete a Building Better Relationships course with the Probation Service and 15 days of Rehabilitation Activity Requirements.
