Stephanie Davis is missing her Celebrity Big Brother housemate Jeremy McConnell and counting down the days until they are reunited.

The lovebirds hadn't seen each other for a week when they met up during Friday night's live finale, but already they've been separated as they go about the usual post-show publicity and frenzy of work commitments.

Jeremy flew to Ireland at the weekend to appear on local TV show Ray D'Arcy, while Stephanie is still in England.

Tweeting overnight, former Hollyoaks actress Stephanie said: "Missing a certain someone like crazyyyyy roll on tuesday."

She then retweeted a follower who commented: "Aww the next romeo and juliet. what a love story and wishing u both the best and a lifetime of happiness! Luck of the Irish X (sic)."

Stephanie and Jeremy's blossoming romance was the most talked-about storyline of the entire CBB series, because Stephanie fell for Jez despite entering the house in a relationship with model Sam Reece.

So far, Sam has not given any interviews on the situation or said anything, other than to deny the "hurtful" suggestion he had cheated on Stephanie, and dismiss the claim he is "cashing in" by doing PAs, agreeing with fans who pointed out he's a successful model who has always done PAs.

Meanwhile, on The Ray D'Arcy Show, Jeremy said he and Stephanie are "working towards a relationship" but he understands she needs some space, as her one-year relationship with Sam ended in the house.

"We are both still single. Like I said, she's come out of a relationship in the house, basically, so there's no point jumping straight into it. Take two weeks, take a breather, see your friends and family. You need breathing space after that."
