She said: "I love Jeremy to bits, but he knows he's got his own issues. He lost his mum, sister and brother – he thinks everyone is going to leave him.

"I think he loved me that much…"

At this point in the interview, Stephanie breaks down in tears and admits she's getting choked up, before saying: "He pushes everyone away.

"It wasn't me and I understand that now. I think I've been really good trying to stick with him."

At the end of the interview, Steph opened up about Jeremy's supposed Tweet to I'm a Celebrity… winner Vicky Pattison, in which he said: "When are you taking me out?"

She said: "It's heartbreaking. Half an hour after we split up, he tweeted Vicky Pattison. In a weird way, he did that out of love.

"I know he's doing it to try and hurt me. He's done that to try and get a reaction out of me when it's too late."

Vicky has hit back at being mentioned in relation Steph and Jez's relationship woes, writing on Twitter: "It is a horrible situation but nothing to do with me. Ridiculous."

Stephanie and Jeremy met on Celebrity Big Brother in January and began a relationship, despite the fact she was in a relationship with model Sam Reece.
