Celebrity Big Brother star Megan McKenna is fully behind Stephanie Davis and Jeremy McConnell's budding romance.

While Megan did initially think that Stephanie would drop Jeremy after CBB, she has since had a change of a heart. Stephanie originally entered the house with a boyfriend, Sam Reece, but later realised she wanted to be single and see what could happen between herself and Jez.

The couple have controversially kissed in the house, but have won the support of their fellow housemates - Megan included. She recently revealed: "I wish them good luck."

Speaking to The Daily Star about her new pals, Megan said: "Jeremy said he wants to wait for her when she gets out and that hopefully things go well [between them]."

"He is a lovely boy," she added. "We all knew from the beginning that they fancied each other, but I think Jeremy genuinely likes her. He's a real gentleman, too."

Megan admitted: "I did originally think Steph would drop Jeremy and go back to Sam, but I think she genuinely likes him too."

Megan's comments come after viewers watched Stephanie tell her housemates she instantly fell for Jeremy.

Despite being taken when she made her CBB debut, Stephanie admitted she saw Jeremy and knew she was in trouble. She said: "I thought, 'Oh s**t, I'm in trouble'. When he first came down them stairs, I just thought, f**k this is going to be hard.

"Then he spoke and I thought, I'm f**ked. It was literally instant when he locked eyes with me coming down the stairs. I thought, 'oh f**k, we are definitely going to get together, aren't we?"

Stephanie has since confessed she is worried Jeremy won't want to make a go of things when CBB wraps up, but Jeremy has suggested his feelings haven't changed by showering Steph with support on social media.

He recently tweeted: "So proud of her. She's killing it." And he has constantly been urging his followers to vote for Steph to win.

Jeremy was the sixth celebrity to be evicted from CBB and since leaving the house, he has apologised to Steph's beau Sam.

He said: "I meant everything I said. I wasn't in there for a showmance. I followed my heart. I never went in there with an agenda to wreck people's lives, I followed my heart and stand by it.

"Obviously those circumstances, I wouldn't like to be in that situation, nor would anybody. I like to think I have a bit of integrity but obviously to Sam, I'm sorry the way it worked out."

Jeremy has since met Stephanie's parents and her dad, Roy, has given the model his seal of approval.

Stephanie's dad revealed: "I met Jeremy over the weekend and he seemed very sincere. We will need to let Stephanie tell us what happens next on that front but from the first meeting he has our seal of approval and was incredibly charming."
