The former 'Celebrity Big Brother' star may be expecting a baby with his ex-girlfriend Stephanie Davis, but that hasn't stopped him looking for potential new lovers since their split and has admitted he's got a soft spot for the 'Ex on the Beach' babe.

Speaking at Foxy Bingo's Love Lodge event in Soho, London, on Monday (28.11.16), he said: "Lillie Lexi Gregg is really stunning, I kind of have a crush on her actually. I'm done with love for the moment, but there are always friends."

However, it seems the feeling isn't quite mutual for Lillie - who previously dated Stephen Bear - as she's only got eyes for her new handsome footballer boyfriend Josh McEachran.

She explained: "My ideal person to kiss under the mistletoe would be my boyfriend Josh McEachran, I'm hoping to find a French Bulldog under the Christmas Tree! My boyfriend already has one so we need to get another one to keep him company!"

Jeremy, 26, set tongues wagging earlier this month after he deleted all the negative comments he's posted about Stephanie since they called time on their turbulent relationship in May.

Although many eagle-eyed fans thought the kind gesture was Jeremy trying to make amends with the former 'Hollyoaks' star, he's adamant he'll never rekindle his relationship with her.

He said recently: "I will never be getting back with her, to clarify what I've said for months."

Stephanie, 23, has always pleaded that Jeremy is the father of her unborn son, who is due into the world in January, but the Irish hunk isn't convinced and wants a paternity test done.
