Stephanie Davis was asked to take part in the forthcoming series of 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The 23-year-old actress caused a stir earlier this year when she cheated on her then-boyfriend Sam Reece with her fellow housemate Jeremy McConnell, with whom she's expecting a baby, while locked inside the abode and, although bosses have seemingly offered her a mega-money deal to return next month for the 'All Stars vs. New Stars' special, she's refused because her little one - who is due into the world in a few weeks' time - won't be old enough.
Taking to her Twitter account on Sunday (11.12.16), she said after rumours began to swirl earlier that day: "Come on now.. I will not be taking part in CBB 2017. It was lovely to be asked but my priorities are my son and being an amazing mummy xx (sic)"
Although she's snubbed the chance for the sake of her unborn son, the former 'Hollyoaks' star - who was left heartbroken in May when she split from Jeremy following a five-month turbulent romance - feels "grateful" for the chance earlier this year because it's helped shape her.
She said recently: "I acknowledge I was young, had a lot of freedom and made some very bad decisions along the way. The thing is I wouldn't change any of it...
"It's made me into the person I am today and for that Im grateful. I have learnt so much on my journey and continue to learn every day (sic)."
Bosses may not have been able to persuade Stephanie to make a return to the series but they're adamant it'll still be "explosive" because they have so many amazing celebs lined up.
Lee Ryan, reality TV couple Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, Katie Hopkins, Jasmine Lennard and former 'Strictly Come Dancing' professional James Jordan, who have all appeared in the flamboyant abode in previous years, and newbies Bianca Gascoigne and Danielle Armstrong are set to join this year's special when it returns to screens on January 3.
