Jeremy McConnell's father has died

Jeremy McConnell has been left devastated after his father died on Friday following a short battle with cancer, just weeks after Jeremy found out that he is the father of Stephanie Davies’ baby.

The Irish model had previously revealed that his mother, brother and sister died within months of eachother when he was a teenager.

Jeremy’s devastated following the sad news.

Speaking to The Sun, Jeremy’s rep confirmed: “On Friday 3rd March 2017 Jeremy McConnell’s father passed away after a short battle with cancer.

“We ask that Jeremy is given space and privacy at this incredibly sad time.”

Opening up about the tragic deaths of his family as a teen, Jeremy previously shared: “When I was 15 I was at my cousin’s and my mum fell asleep.

“I got back about two hours later and she was gone – she had a brain haemorrhage.

Jeremy shared the first photo of himself with Caben.

“Shortly after that my brother broke his neck in a motorbike accident.

“After that, my sister had a heart attack – she suffered with epilepsy. All in the space of 15 months.

“Of course I miss them, I loved them dearly, but I think that’s what levelled me out a bit – I express myself the way I want to. I just grew up really fast.”

The news of Jeremy’s tragic loss comes just hours after the 27-year-old star shared the first photo of himself with his newborn son, Caben-Ali.

Stephanie and Jeremy met on Celebrity Big Brother.

Jez posted a photo of himself cuddling the tot alongside a heart emoji caption.

The Celebrity Big Brother star had denied that he was the father of ex-girlfriend Stephanie’s baby throughout her pregnancy but after a paternity test confirmed that he is the dad he relocated to Liverpool so that he can be close to his son.

Jeremy is yet to publicly comment on the loss of his father and we are sending him all of our love at this incredibly sad time.

    Russia finds 1,000-times normal level of radioactive isotope after nuclear incident claims

    Russia’s meteorological service said on Tuesday it had measured pollution of a radioactive isotope at nearly 1,000 times normal levels in the Ural mountains, the first official Russian data supporting reports that a nuclear incident had taken place. The data appears to back up a report by the French nuclear safety institute IRSN, which said on Nov. 9 a cloud of radioactive pollution over Europe had indicated some kind of leak had taken place at a nuclear facility either in Russia or Kazakhstan in the last week of September. Neither Russia nor Kazakhstan has acknowledged any accident.

    Britain to detail Brexit bill when EU agrees to move talks forward

    LONDON/BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May will only detail how big a divorce settlement Britain is willing to pay the EU when the bloc gives a commitment to moving talks forward, according to a plan rubber-stamped by even her most pro-Brexit ministers. In Brussels, British media speculation that May has won the backing of Brexit hardliners to offer more cash prompted talk among EU diplomats that a deal to unblock talks on future trade relations could be in the making ahead of a crunch Brussels summit in three weeks. At a meeting on Monday, May's Brexit committee - made up of some of her top ministers - backed the long-held strategy that Britain would honour commitments made when it was a member of the European Union.

    Britain's most notorious prisoner Charles Bronson refused parole

    Notorious prisoner Charles Bronson has been refused parole - consigning him to at least another two years behind bars. The 64-year-old, serving a life sentence for robbery and kidnap at Wakefield Prison in West Yorkshire, will have to wait until 2019 for another review of his case after the Parole Board recommended that he not be released. Bronson, who was born Michael Peterson but is now called Charles Salvador after changing his name by deed poll in tribute to artist Salvador Dali, has earned public notoriety because of a history of violence both in and out of jail - including an attack on a prison governor in 2014.

    Witness: Men accused of bribes negotiated sale to Qataris

    A sports marketing company whose owners have been charged with bribing top soccer officials tried to negotiate a sale to an entity associated with Paris Saint-Germain team president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, a witness testified Tuesday in federal court. Santiago Pena, a former executive of the Argentina-based Full Play Group, testified that he spent a lengthy period of time on secret negotiations called the "New York project," given the name because the deal for 51 percent of Full Play was valued at $212 million — 212 is a New York City telephone area code. Pena said the talks with Al-Khelaifi and the sovereign wealth fund Qatar Sports Investments ended on May 27, 2015, when U.S. prosecutors unsealed indictments against Full Play's controlling principals, the father and son Hugo and Mariano Jinkis, for racketeering conspiracy, wire fraud conspiracy and money laundering conspiracy.

Hundreds of organisations working in sectors such as overseas aid, research and conservation are likely to be hardest hit unless the Government replaces the revenue stream, experts have said. Research by the Directory of Social Change (DSC) found that a no- deal Brexit with the EU could see "an even sharper shock to the system" if currently awarded funds are suddenly cut off.

    After Juli Briskman gave Trump’s motorcade the finger, her employer sacked her, citing her re-posting of the ‘obscene’ image on her Twitter account. In situations where people are taking sides, offence is met with counter-offence, the coarser the better. In public, especially in the US, attitudes towards offence have grown correspondingly prim, and the long-established boundaries between offence and free speech are being redrawn.
