Jeremy McConnell found GUILTY of assaulting Steph Davis

The pair began a relationship after appearing on Celebrity Big Brother previous year but Ms Davis told Liverpool magistrates' court that it had been the worst 18 months of her life.

"Stephanie and her family would like to thank everyone for their support throughout this process which has been stressful and has put them all under massive pressure".

Judge Wendy Lloyd said in her ruling at the Liverpool Magistrates' Court: "This is a sad story, like many of this sort there is much emotion on both sides".

She also thanked her friends, family and team for helping her to rebuild her life and said she'd now work to prevent other women being abused.

It comes after the former Hollyoaks star accused Jeremy, 27, of "throwing her like a rag doll" during the incident at her home on 10 March when she gave evidence at her former boyfriend's trial this week.

She shouted back "Jeremy can you stop talking over me when I'm trying to talk?" as arguments continuously interrupted proceedings.

Steph claimed that during the assault, Jeremy had a "psychotic episode" after celebrating Steph's birthday.

"I couldn't find my mobile phone, but he always used to take my mobile in those times, so I was searching everywhere and I couldn't find it and I started to panic".

"He was booting my glass doors with his foot, and I thought the glass was going to shatter. I thought, "this is it, he's going to kill me".

When the court gathered again, Jeremy, who had originally pleaded guilty to a charge of criminal damage but had denied assault by beating, admitted to snorting a bag of cocaine with plans and had downed three double vodkas and diet coke.

Stephanie appeared happy with the verdict as she left court earlier today.
