Celebrity Big Brother star Jeremy McConnell has stayed silent on social media following his ex-girlfriend Stephanie Davis' pregnancy interview on Loose Women.

Yesterday, Stephanie appeared on the ITV daytime show to give her first televised interview since finding out she is expecting. On the show, the 23-year-old spoke candidly of how she has found her pregnancy so far, as well as opening up about her relationship with Jeremy and responding to his paternity claims.

Steph had accused Jeremy of being unfaithful throughout the chat, and contested his claims he couldn't be the father of her unborn baby. While Jeremy did provide a response when contacted by Loose Women (that was read out live on air), he has not added any further comment about Steph or her pregnancy on his social media accounts.

Instead, Jeremy seemed to put his mind elsewhere, only taking to Twitter to tweet about the sunshine. He shared a love heart emoji and told his followers: "This weather."

Both he and Stephanie have been known to like tweets about each other in the past, but Jeremy hasn't liked anything since 17 July.

Fans will know that he and Stephanie had bitterly fallen out, following their fourth and final split back in May. Their break up came before Stephanie found out she is pregnant and since then, Jeremy has claimed he can't be the baby's father.

In an interview with Ireland's TVNow, Jeremy said: "Look, if she is pregnant it's not my kid. She had her period. We had been broken up."

However, Stephanie insisted Jeremy is the father of her child. She told the Loose Women panel that the pair had been trying for a baby before they broke up: "He is 100 percent the father. He knows that. Jeremy wanted a baby with me... looking at it now, it wasn't the right thing to do considering the relationship. I never would have got pregnant to think I was going to be doing it alone."

Stephanie then revealed that she had said to Jeremy to take a DNA test, adding: "I've asked him to do a DNA test, if he really cared he would have... I think Jeremy has made it very clear where he stands. He doesn't want to believe it."

She explained she had looked into pre-DNA testing, but was hesitant to do so after learning it could put the baby at risk of miscarriage.

Jeremy, meanwhile, sent a response into the show. Reacting to Stephanie's infidelity claims he said the couple had split after "numerous fights and arguments over insecurities and work schedules."

He then added that the reason he has questioned if he is the father of Steph's baby is because he had seen photos posted online of her in bed with other guys. When it came to a DNA test, Jeremy added: "A pre test could be fatal, that's the reason why I wouldn't want to do a test until the baby is born."

Stephanie said she found Jeremy's response "predictable" and said: "It's nice that he is actually acknowledging that there is a baby there now."

Following Stephanie's baby bump reveal last week, she is now 14-weeks gone, Jeremy tweeted: "Everything will be dealt with accordingly and mature, but a baby doesn't fix a toxic relationship, end of discussion."

He and Stephanie began dating after appearing on Celebrity Big Brother together in January.
