It seems Celebrity Big Brother personality Jeremy McConnell may have celebrated the end of the series a little too hard over the weekend.

The 23-year-old reality TV star was due to guest present Xpose on TV3 on Monday evening but was forced to pull out having had a whopper weekend of partying in Dublin.

Jeremy was reunited with Big Brother love interest Stephanie Davis (22) at the CBB final on Friday night and the housemates celebrated their first night of freedom together.

On Saturday he flew to Dublin to appear on The Ray D'Arcy Show after which he partied until the early hours of the morning at the Wright Venue in Swords.

Unfortunately, he was still recovering from his exploits on Monday. 

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."

However, there are no hard feelings at TV.

“It was unfortunate that Jeremy couldn’t present Xpose on this occasion. Peter was looking forward to having another man on set! We hope he feels better soon!” they said.
