Steph and Jeremy met in the house.

A source told The Mirror: "[Stephanie] finally got hold of Jeremy last night and they are talking things through. It's come to crisis point now where they are battling to save their relationship."

The couple met on the last series of CBB and fell in love on TV. It was controversial as Stephanie was in a relationship with model Sam Reece at the time. To this day he still hasn't publicly spoken about what happened between Steph and Jez or his own break up with Steph when she left the house.

Everything was okay on 18 Feb when this picture was taken.

After leaving the house, Steph and Jez decided to give their relationship a go and had seemed blissfully happy, calling each other boyfriend and girlfriend, meeting friends and family, and Jez even bought a Steph a diamond ring.

So what on earth happened?!

So far the only person we've heard from is Jez, who released a statement via a rep saying: "He cares really deeply for Steph however the pressure of the relationship was just too much, he really wishes it could have worked out and he wishes Steph the very best for the future."

Steph is due to give a statement to Loose Women today at 12.30pm.

The couple had been booked for a joint interview on the ITV show today, but pulled out following news of their split. Instead, the panel will read a message from Steph.
