Celebrity Big Brother star Jeremy McConnell continues to deny he is the father of Stephanie Davis' unborn baby, in new quotes from a recent interview.

Former Hollyoaks actress Stephanie is currently expecting her first child, confirming her baby news last month. She admitted her pregnancy came as a "shock," but assured fans she can't wait to be a mum.

Stephanie has said she shares the baby with Jeremy, and at the time, revealed her hopes for him to want to be a part of their child's life. He, however, has denied he is the father and in new quotes from Jeremy's interview with TVNow magazine, he claims there is a reason he can't be the dad.

Jeremy had told the Irish publication: "I'm not going to be a dad. If she is pregnant, it's not mine. If I was a dad, I'd be 100% no, 110%, the best dad in the world. But you'll see in the future that it's not my kid, and she'll look like a mug."

According to The Mirror, Jeremy also claimed that he couldn't be the father because Stephanie had told him she'd had her period since their split.

He added: "Look, if she is pregnant it's not my kid. She had her period. We had been broken up."

When contacted by Reveal, a representative for Stephanie had no comment. At the time, Jeremy's denial had surfaced last week, Steph's rep had told Daily Star: "Our client is categorically pregnant. We do not need to continue repeating this."

So far, she is yet to respond herself and instead chose to tweet about her baby bump in light of Jeremy's claims.

Stephanie took to Twitter and told her 397,000 followers she was enjoying the sunshine. She tweeted: "Nice day in the sun with bump."

We have also contacted a rep for Jeremy.

Stephanie and Jeremy controversially fell for each other while both starring on Celebrity Big Brother earlier this year.

On entering the house, Stephanie had been dating ex-boyfriend Sam Reece, but later realised she needed to be single, after growing closer to Jeremy. Following her exit, she split with Sam and pursued a relationship with Jeremy.

Throughout their relationship, the pair split on four occasions, seemingly ending their relationship for good in May - just before Stephanie confirmed her baby news.

At the time, Jeremy didn't seem to doubt the child was his, saying: "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."

Since then, Stephanie and Jeremy have both hit out at each other on Twitter. While she accused him of missing baby scans and threw drug accusations at him, Jeremy called Stephanie out for having "no shame" and denied any drug use

There is no evidence to support Stephanie's claims surrounding drugs. A rep for Jeremy for had no comment to make.
