The Dublin model was due to launch the new series of Big Brother on TV3 on Wednesday but had to pull out due to illness.

The 26-year-old only recently took to social media to share a snap of himself enjoying the summer so it looks as though the sickness came on overnight.

He previously pulled out of presenting Xpose on TV3 after a whopper party weekend in February.

He was due to guest present on the Monday but flew in to Dublin on the Saturday, following the Big Brother finale on the Friday night.

He appeared on The Ray D'Arcy Show on the Saturday night and partied until the early hours of Sunday morning at the Wright venue in Swords.

By Monday he had not recovered enough to make the trip to Ballymount.

At the time a statement released by Jeremy's management company reads, "Jeremy has been totally overwhelmed by the response since he came out of CBB, he didn't get back to Ireland until Saturday after over a month away and I think celebrated a bit too hard.

"He's gutted to have let Xpose down in the way that he did but he was ill and in no fit state to present the show."

Former Mr Ireland contestant Jeremy appeared on the Celebrity edition of the Channel 5 show in January where he struck up a romance with Hollyoaks star Stephanie Davis.

The former couple have since had a tumultuous relationship in the spotlight, with many of their troubles aired on social media.

Stephanie is currently said to be pregnant with his child. However, Jeremy has remained quiet on the topic.

Big Brother kicks off on TV3 on June 7 at 9pm.
