The 27-year-old reality TV star has been thrown behind bars for just under five months after he appeared at Cardiff Magistrates Court this morning (23.11.17) because he failed to stick to the terms and conditions of his suspended sentence by going off to Turkey without permission to get a hair transplant and new teeth.

However, the heavily-inked hunk didn't seem too bothered about going to prison as, before he stood in the dock this morning, he took to his Instagram account - which has since been wiped of any content - to wish his followers a happy festive period.

He wrote: "If I don't see yas, have a great Christmas. (sic)"

Jeremy was slapped with 200 hours of community service in August - narrowly missing out on prison - after he was found guilty of assaulting his ex-girlfriend Stephanie Davis while she was holding their now-10-month-old son Caben.

But he hit the headlines just days after he started the unpaid work in Glasgow as he allegedly refused to scrub off some graffiti as he believed the spray-painted wall was created by famous artist Banksy.

A source said previously: "He has refused to scrub graffiti because he believes the artwork is a Banksy - and he's told officials.

"A decision is yet to be made about Jeremy and how he will continue his community service going forward. He could end up in real trouble over it."

As well as his community service, Jeremy was also ordered to pay £1,000 in court costs, £1,000 in compensation to Stephanie and a victims surcharge of £115.

He's also been told to stay away from Stephanie, 24, for three years and any communication regarding Caben has to be done via social service or the family court.
