Jeremy McConnell has poked fun at a new report comparing him and ex-girlfriend Stephanie Davis to Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil.

The Irish model, 25, took to Twitter after reading the Daily Star Online's interview today with a source who claimed Steph's friends and family had been worried about her relationship with Jeremy.

A source had told the newspaper: "She looks up to Amy Winehouse in terms of the music, but we were worried as we could see her mirroring Amy and Blake with Jez, and we were scared it would turn into that. Things just got so intense she needed out, she's a fighter though she will be fine."

Now Jez has responded via Twitter, saying: "You know there's something wrong if the papers are comparing you to Amy Winehouse ex Blake."

He added a crying with laughter emoji and the hashtag 'behave'.

When one follower replied to Jeremy, "What are they thinking… he ain't got a patch on u", the model sent another string of crying with laughter emojis.

Jeremy and ex-girlfriend Stephanie have been in the headlines ever since they met in Celebrity Big Brother back in January. While things were brilliant between them at first, it soon turned sour and they split for a fourth time this month.

Then, Stephanie shocked fans by announcing she was pregnant in a swiftly-deleted Instagram post. She hasn't made reference to the pregnancy since and her rep has not commented.

Jeremy has since commented: "Just to be clear, if what is circulating is true, I'll always be responsible for my actions, and I explained to Steph I'll speak to her, and do everything for her, if she stops drinking and partying knowing she's "pregnant". I'm sick of tit for tat but I won't let anyone slander me.

"I haven't been ideal in the relationship whatsoever, I'm trying to move on peacefully, it's a shock to most, but a kid can't fix a broken relationship."
