Jeremy McConnell has got fans talking, after posing on Instagram with Simba - the puppy he and his ex-girlfriend Stephanie Davis share.

Jeremy and Steph recently confirmed they have split for the fourth time and in the wake of their split, fans had shared their concerns over what would happen to their dog.

Stephanie had reassured her followers on Twitter that she will be the one looking after Simba, and recently revealed on Snapchat she was getting ready to bring him home. He, however, has now been pictured with Jeremy, leaving fans a little confused.

He was last pictured with the pup two weeks ago.

Jeremy took to Instagram and shared a new photo with Simba. He can be seen with his arm around the puppy and told fans: "Cuddles with my bud."

He also documented their reunion on Snapchat, adding the caption: "Love him."

Is he now the one who will be caring for Simba or are they going to share looking after him, instead? Does this mean he has seen Stephanie since their split?

Signs of trouble first surfaced for the pair when Jeremy tweeted to say he was starting a "new leaf." He liked several tweets alluding to a split, with Stephanie then confirming things were over by posting several screenshots of private messages Jeremy is thought to have sent another girl.

Since then, Stephanie has suggested she is moving on from Jez and told fans recently: "You can't live in the past." However, she did also spark speculation she is pregnant, after appearing to claim so on Instagram.

Stephanie posted and has since deleted a quote that read: "Life will be full of ups and downs. It will be one tough ride. But your love for your child will be the anchor that will see you through it all…"

She had added the caption: "Loved him unconditionally, after a week of hell and late phone calls and pain he's caused I still kept my phone so I could find him, find out I'm pregnant and he says he doesn't love me anymore and blocked. Heartbroken."

Both reps for Stephanie and Jeremy declined to comment when contacted by Reveal.

Stephanie, meanwhile, ignored the stir she had caused and instead returned to Twitter (after taking a one day break) to reveal she has been "under stress."

Jeremy also broke his social media silence following Steph's pregnancy claims, cryptically tweeting overnight: "The loudest in the room is the weakest."

Fans had presumed he was referring to his ex-girlfriend and Jeremy also liked a tweet suggesting he is ready to speak out. It read: "Tired of all the things Steph said about you and deleting the minute after, we need to know your side of the story."
