Stephanie Davis tells Celebrity Big Brother housemate 'I need to be single'

Updated: 

Celebrity Big Brother's Stephanie Davis has declared that she needs to be single.

The former Hollyoaks star is the girlfriend of model Sam Reece, but has enjoyed a flirtatious relationship with former Mr Ireland Jeremy McConnell in the house. 

She told McConnell: "Obviously Sam's not right for me and I need to sort it when I get out."

Reece is watching Celebrity Big Brother on television and - unbeknownst to Davis - has tweeted about the future of their relationship.

On January 11 he wrote: "Hi everyone, I will no longer be supporting Stephanie Davis ... Thanks for all your support and love you have given me!!"

But a day later he clarified: "I would never end a relationship over text or social media. I want to talk to Steph face to face."

Davis was picked by television nutritionist Gillian McKeith for the latest task, which involved the four most "toxic" housemates being segregated for a detox.

McKeith chose Davis as she was "emotionally toxic".

Reece tweeted: "Good luck Gillian McKeith". 

During the task, in which the four "toxic" housemates slept in a separate room, Davis told McConnell: "We are septic to each other as we both want to be with each other. I can't stay away!"

After the detox, she decided: "It's made me realise what I'm worth and that I need to be single."

Elsewhere, McConnell told Scotty T that he loves Davis.

Post-detox, Davis and McConnell talked about their future together. 

He said: "If things work out after we get out of here, I'll book us a holiday somewhere nice, I want to. I think I need to show you what my idea of treating a lady is like." 

During the detox task, health guru McKeith lived up to her "Dr Poo" nickname as she asked her four "toxic" housemates - Davis, Tiffany Pollard, Scotty T and John Partridge - to defecate for her inspection. 

She is best-known for her Channel 4 series You Are What You Eat, during which she examined participants' faecal matter to see how healthy they were. 

Speaking to Big Brother in the diary room, Pollard said: "I can't take a dump unless I have incense burning.

"My head is in the game. I see the other toxic housemates are excited to take a c*** for her. I don't want to be the odd one out all the time, so I will give it my best effort to take a s***."
