The former 'Hollyoaks' actress was left heartbroken earlier this year when her ex-partner Jeremy McConnell - who is the father of her 11-month-old son Caben - assaulted her during a blazing row but, despite the drama she's had to endure over the past year, she's now found love again with a man called Jake, the Mirror reports.

The brunette beauty set tongues wagging last night (08.01.18) when she changed her display picture on Instagram to a photo of her new man with her legs draped over his body and a gushy quote about finding someone who makes her laugh.

The quote said: "&&so there's this boy, And the way he laughs makes me smile, And the way he talks gives me butterflies, And everything about him, makes me happy (sic)," and she captioned it with the heart, heart eyes and the smiley face emoji.

Although the 24-year-old beauty is enjoying spending time with Jake, she has made it clear to him that Caben - who turns one next week - is her "main priority."

A source said: "Stephanie has been on dates with someone new and loves having her life back. It is still early days but she has been enjoying being treated again.

"Her main priority is Caben but she's really liked having some new male company - and this time it really feels like a fresh start."

Her new man comes just two months after she was rumoured to be dating Ricky Rayment, but that seemingly came crashing down back in October.

A source said at the time: "They have been seeing each other - and things are going well. They speak a lot and are openly very flirty; it's the start of something new for them and they're both seeing how it goes."

Stephanie met and fell in love with Jeremy, 27, while they were competing on 'Celebrity Big Brother' at the beginning of 2016 but they split in March that year.

The actress then found out she was pregnant but Jeremy didn't believe her until Caben was born in January 2017 and a paternity test confirmed he was the father.

They then attempted to give their relationship another go but split when Jeremy left her covered in bruises in March 2017. He was found guilty of assault in August.
