Reality star Marc O'Neill has slammed pal Jeremy McConnell's relationship with Stephanie Davis as "f***ing creepy."

The Biochemistry graduate, who featured on TV3's Tallafornia and Big Brother, has known Jeremy, a former Mr Ireland contestant, for years on the Dublin social scene. But he had some choice words for his burgeoning romance with former Hollyoaks actress Stephanie, whom he met in the Celebrity Big Brother house.

"That's not Jeremy, that's him acting like a f***ing f*nny. If it was me, I'd turn my phone off and never see her again. It's the only way," he told New Magazine.

McConnell recently purchased a commitment ring for his new girlfriend - another thing Marc took issue with: "I was nearly sick when I saw it. What an idiot. Is he f***ing twelve? Is he the Jonas Brothers now?”

He also hit out at their close relationship, saying that Stephanie "knows his bowel movements better then he does" and encouraged them to get some space from each other.

Although they've been glued at the hip since first meeting at the CBB house in January, their relationship hasn't been without its ups and downs.

They've reportedly split twice, only to reunite immediately and audio footage of the former Over the Rainbow contestant lashing out at her new beau after the CBB final went viral as he said he wanted to go out with friends, but she said she had "given everything up" for him.

They later appeared together on the cover of Hello! magazine, proclaiming their love for one another.
