Ladies’ man! CBB’s new recruit says he’s slept with ‘every Irish model’

The new series of Celebrity Big Brother kicks off early next week, and the latest confirmed contestant hails from Irish shores.

Former Bohs and Shelbourne player and self-confessed ladies' man Jeremy McConnell will join this year's lot of housemates, it was revealed this evening.

Dubliner Jeremy, who dated Holly Carpenter for over a year in his teens, once claimed to have slept with "all the models in Ireland," so he'll no doubt have a lot to say on that subject on the show.

Jeremy will join Gemma Collins, Spencer Matthews, David Gest, and Kim Kardashian's bestie Jonathan Cheban for the new series of CBB, which kicks off next Tuesday December 5.

He'll be the first Irish contestant to take part since B*Witched's Edele Lynch in August 2014.

As well as his modelling work, the tattooed Irishman also starred in the 2013 MTV reality show Beauty School Cop Outs.

He describes himself as a "flirt and a charmer" and according to his Beauty School Cop Outs bio he hates "judgmental, stuck up, power crazy people and… bitchiness."

Sounds like he'll have a tough time in the CBB house, so…
