Stephanie Davis has flown to Dublin to meet boyfriend Jeremy McConnell's family and friends as their CBB romance goes from strength to strength.

The former Hollyoaks actress fell for Irish model Jeremy in the most-recent series of Celebrity Big Brother, which sparked major controversy as she had a boyfriend, Sam Reece, at the time.

But since leaving the house, things between Stephanie and Sam are over, and she's blissfully loved up with Jeremy… so much so... she's off to meet the rest of his family!

She tweeted yesterday: "On way to Dublin with me new amazing perfect imperfect family. Buzzing! #valentines."

Steph also said: "So happy, so lucky."

And, just to make sure everyone knows she's really, really loved up, she added some Ed Sheeran lyrics form the track 'Thinking Out Loud': "People fall in love in mysterious ways maybe at the touch of a hand, I just want to be with u everyday, take me into ur loving arms (sic)."

Jeremy's already met some of Stephanie's family: her mum and dad. He was introduced to them following his eviction from the house the week before finale night as they were all staying in the same hotel.

Her father Roy told The Mirror at the time: "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."

And Stephanie said of her parents: "I think they just want me to be happy so they have been fine. I think a big thing for me was make mum and dad proud but let them know I'm okay on my own. They see this, and they get me for being me now, they understand."

Stephanie and Jeremy are now officially boyfriend and girlfriend, having sealed their relationship on the night of the CBB finale, where Stephanie finished in second place.

I kissed him straight away," she said on Loose Women. "As soon as I came out I was looking for him. I'm seeing him later on today, he is flying over [from Ireland] which is really exciting. I can't wait. We are going to talk about things. It's hard everyone has opinion whether we marry or break up. Who knows what will happen in the future but for now I can't believe I have found someone who loves me."
