While her would-have-been campmates were flying over to Australia, a smitten Stephanie enjoyed a night out with her beau Sam Reece instead, heading to the launch of Turtle Bay in Liverpool's city centre.
For the event, Stephanie cut a low key figure, but still looked just as glamorous as she dressed down in a plunging black top. The starlet wore her glossy dark locks in an effortless top knot and was seen smiling as she cuddled up to her boyfriend Sam inside the venue.
She and Sam have been dating for over six months now, and Stephanie is often seen gushing about her other half on social media. So much so, that the pair recently got matching 'S' tattoos on their wrists and sharing a snap of their new body ink, Steph told fans her bond with Sam is "unbreakable".
Looking pretty loved-up, the couple also joined a slew of Stephanie's former Hollyoaks co-stars at the launch.
Her appearance in Liverpool comes after she recently revealed to fans she has been forced to pull out of this year's I'm A Celebrity lineup.
Stephanie had been heavily rumoured to join the show this year, and the actress confirmed she did have a spot in the I'm A Celeb jungle, but after failing to pass medical tests, she hasn't been allowed to continue.
Each contestant has to undergo a string of tests to check their physical and mental health before entering camp, with Steph later finding out she has a nut allergy that could be "potentially life-threatening" if she was to fall ill on the show.
Addressing her Twitter followers, Stephanie admitted she is "absolutely gutted" to be missing out.
Sharing a lengthy message to the social media site, Stephanie explained: "Yes it's true, I was signed up for I'm A Celebrity, but unfortunately due to a severe nut allergy it would be unsafe for me to take part in the jungle.
"I'm absolutely gutted as it would have been a brilliant experience and [I'm] sure I would have had you all laughing your socks off."
Stephanie has since been replaced by her former co-star Jorgie Porter. Last night, fans watched as Jorgie entered the jungle alongside the likes of Susannah Constantine, George Shelley, Brian Friedman and Tony Hadley.
She went head-to-head with Susannah when it came to sky diving out of a helicopter, sparked rumours of a romance after getting quite close to Union J's George and even got voted to take part in the first Bushtucker trial (Disaster Chef) along with Lady Colin Campbell.
Jorgie had said she didn't mind eating all the horrible things Ant and Dec have served to previous campers. Has she spoken to soon on this one?
As well as seeing Jorgie and Lady Colin tuck into a few not-so-nice dishes, viewers are also set to welcome three new arrivals to camp.
Earlier today it was confirmed Ferne McCann, Spencer Matthews and Vicky Pattison will all be heading into the jungle as latecomers.
We. Can't. Wait.
