Stephanie Davis' mother has branded Jeremy McConnell a "malicious scumbag" after he called her daughter a "manipulative f**k" and accused her of cutting up his clothes.

The 24-year-old actress' mum Pauline - who has never liked the heavily-inked hunk - has jumped to her child's defence after the Irish heartthrob, with whom she has four-month-old son Caben-Albi, bad-mouthed her in a since-deleted post on Twitter last night (11.06.17).

She hit back: "Finally after 16 months of hell the scumbag has shown his true colours! #beyondevil #malicious #noexcuses. (sic)"

Pauline's outburst, which she has since deleted, came just hours after the 27-year-old star took his own social networking site to state their relationship was over and Stephanie was "dead" to him after she allegedly slammed his late parents and tore up his wardrobe.

He wrote: "Cuts up my whole wardrobe slags my dead parents that girl is dead to me manipulative f*** . #over. (sic)"

Jeremy's decision to end their romance came just days after his ex-girlfriend Savannah Kemplay, who he dated for two years after meeting her on 'Beauty School Cop Out' in 2013, urged him to put his "toxic" relationship to bed for good after she heard the pair had been squabbling again.

Taking to her Twitter account, Savannah - who is currently living in Australia - said: "Right... am I genuinely getting the blame for ANOTHER argument between Jeremy and steph? That relationship genuinely needs to be put to bed (sic)"

Stephanie and Jeremy sparked rumours they'd had another argument after last week after the former 'Hollyoaks' star blocked her on/off beau on her social networking sites just before she left for her agony aunt job on the 'Big Brother' spin-off 'Bit On the Side' in London.

A friend said: "Things were already quite tense between them, but Savannah's comments have reopened a lot of old wounds. Steph is desperate for them to be a proper family - as is Jez - but she is struggling to deal with Jeremy's past. Just when she thinks everything between them is OK, another skeleton comes falling out of the closet. She was devastated reading Savannah's comments about her relationship, even though Jeremy told her they were totally ridiculous."

It's thought their row stemmed from Stephanie's insecurities because she doesn't like the fact that Savannah and Jeremy, have so much history together - even though they have a son together.
