In a series of tweets she explained this afternoon: "Me and Jez are still very much together. We're working around schedules to be with each other. I'm madly in love with him.

"Thanks for all of the support though. Means a lot."

Anyone else totally confused?!

Jeremy has yet to publicly respond to Steph's latest tweets.

Steph's tweet comes just hours after she broke her silence on her shock split from Jeremy, saying: "I'm very upset."

Steph issued a brief statement to Loose Women confirming the separation and explaining why she had pulled out of today's TV appearance, where she and Jeremy had been booked for a joint interview.

She said: "I'm really sad not to be able to come onto the show today and see all of you Loose Women," said the statement.

"Everything has changed for me over the weekend. I'm very upset and I feel taking a few days to get my head together is the best thing for me to do right now. Thank you for all the continuous support as always. Love you all lots and I'll see you soon. Stephanie."

Meanwhile, a rep for Jeremy had earlier confirmed the split, 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 and Jeremy fell in love in the CBB house.

After Jez's statement was released, a source told The Mirror that they were trying to save their relationship, saying: "[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."

Rumours of a split emerged over the weekend when Jeremy tweeted: "I have been the biggest mug. I'm sorry for the people who tried to warn me. But you live and learn. Onwards and upwards."

He added on Facebook that he was "heartbroken" and he also removed all photos of Steph on his Instagram account.

The pair found love on series 17 of Celebrity Big Brother, which wrapped up earlier this month, but their romance was controversial because Steph had a boyfriend - model Sam Reece - on the outside.

However, after leaving the house, the pair decided to make things official and became boyfriend and girlfriend, and they recently told their love story in a magazine deal where they revealed plans to live together in London.
