TOWIE star James Lock has hit out at Stephanie Davis and Jeremy McConnell's romance, insisting they are rushing into things.

The reality star has had plenty of experience when it comes to seeing and having relationships played out in the public eye and he's not so convinced when it comes to the Celebrity Big Brother stars.

Stephanie and Jeremy controversially found love in the CBB house, despite Steph having a boyfriend on the outside. Since the show, the pair have continued to flaunt their blossoming romance, but it seems not everyone is a fan of their loved-up tweets and Instagram posts...

Speaking to The Daily Star at the launch of his new restaurant, Lockie's Kitchen, James shared his opinion on 'Jephanie.'

He said: "The public may love reality TV, but they're not stupid, they're no idiots. You can't just push something on them and expect them to bite. Jez and Steph have rushed things. Coming out and looking at rings straight away... Who are they kidding?"

Lockie may have had a point...

Stephanie had gushed about Jeremy on social media, showing off a diamond ring that he had bought her just weeks into their relationship. Last Friday, she said: "My beautiful ring of my baby @JezzaMcConnell a day without you feels like a year.You make me so happy. I love you."

However, just two days later, Jeremy sparked speculation the pair had split. He had tweeted: "My beautiful ring of my baby @JezzaMcConnell a day without you feels like a year.You make me so happy. I love you."

He and Stephanie were scheduled to appear on Loose Women for their first joint interview as a couple on Monday, but reports revealed the pair had cancelled on the show and Jeremy confirmed his split with Steph in an official statement.

He claimed there was too much pressure surrounding his and Steph's relationship.

Many fans were shocked to hear about the break-up as they believed Steph and Jez really were smitten. Stephanie then said "everything had changed" between herself and Jeremy, before confusing us all and declaring the couple were still together.

She tweeted that she and Jeremy are "madly in love" - leading fans to question the sudden change in their relationship status in 24 hours.

One commented: "Stephanie and Jeremy's relationship is the most confusing thing ever." Some claimed the pair were 'attention seeking' while others said they 'no longer care.'

We, meanwhile, are pretty baffled by it all. Jeremy has now confirmed he and Stephanie are back together and has released another statement to say that actually he and Stephanie are "fine."

He also hit out at rumours doing the rounds that he has been 'unfaithful' and insisted he and Stephanie "love and trust each other."

So was their split just a minor blip, then? We can't keep up!
