Jeremy McConnell to appear in court today charged with assault

Reality TV star, Jeremy McConnell will appear in court today charged with assaulting his on-off girlfriend and mother of his child, Stephanie Davis.

The former Celebrity Big Brother contestant will stand trail at Liverpool Magistrates' Court and this will be the first time the infamous couple have been face-to-face since June this year.

The alleged incident took place at a property in Rainhill, Merseyside, on March 10.

At a previous court appearance on May 10, Jeremy, 27, pleaded guilty to charges of criminal damage but denied assault by beating.

Originally from Swords, Co Dublin, the Irish model first met the Hollyoaks actress when they both appeared as contestants on Celebrity Big Brother in 2015.

Since then, the couple have made headlines for their rocky on-again off-again relationship.

They also welcomed a baby boy, Caben-Albi, in January 2017.
