Jeremy McConnell is reportedly set to get the ultimate grilling on his 'abusive' relationship with ex-partner Stephanie Davies in a one-off episode of The Jeremy Kyle Show.

The reality star was given a suspended sentence of 20 weeks in prison for assaulting his former partner Davies last year and slapped with a three-year restraining order banning him from contacting her.

McConnell’s TV appearance will see him questioned on his and Davies’ volatile relationship and his spell in prison over Christmas after breaking the terms of conviction.

A source told The Sun: “Jeremy is looking forward to filming the show and having the chance to talk about his problems in full.

“The last two years have been chaotic and Jeremy has suffered the loss of several family members while becoming a dad for the first time.

“His on-off relationship with Stephanie hit rock bottom last year and he served time in prison after he breached his community service.

“There is a lot to fit into an hour-long special and Jeremy Kyle will no doubt want Jeremy to face up to his issues and apologise for his wrongdoings.”

Earlier this week Davies appeared on Lorraine to discuss her relationship with McConnell, who is the father of her 11-month-old baby Caben-Albi.

She told host Lorraine Kelly McConnell’s restraining order gave her “a chance to sort [herself] out once and for all.”
