Jeremy McConnell has admitted he feels bad for Stephanie Davis' boyfriend Sam Reece, saying: "Any lad would feel bad, I'm not laughing about it."

The Irish model , 25, appeared on Bit On The Side last night to talk about his time in the house, which included falling for Stephanie despite her having a boyfriend, Sam, in the outside world.

When Rylan Clark-Neal asked if he had any regrets, Jez replied: "Not that this stage. It's a really tough question because it's like being caught between a rock and a hard place. The situation with Steph and the boyfriend, of course, even Stevie Wonder could see it's a bad thing to do.

"I still went with my feelings. Of course I feel bad for Sam, any lad would feel bad, I'm not laughing about it. I respect the girl and feel she could be respected more as a woman."

Jeremy added that he thinks Stephanie, 22, could now be starting to win over the public, saying: "I think people are warming to the Steph situation. I understand it was done in a mad way but it's what is thrown at you.

"We did try to separate in the house and do our own thing, but in the house there is no getting away. I'm a genuine lad, I wouldn't do stuff for a showmance and I know she wouldn't either. There is no point her sacrificing things. It is what it is."

Sam has yet to directly comment on Stephanie and Jeremy, other than to deny the suggestion he was using the situation to gain publicity, agreeing with a Twitter user who pointed out Sam's a well known and successful model in his own right.

CBB continues tonight at 9pm on Channel 5.
