Jeremy McConnell looks has shared a fresh-faced picture from his past and thanked his loved ones for his support.

The former Celebrity Big Brother star has been on a bit of a rollercoaster ride since he rose to fame on the Channel 5 show and started his romance with actress Stephanie McConnell.

Taking to Instagram, Jezza posted a picture from his younger days when he his neck was not completely covered in tattoos.

He can be seen standing alongside two friends and smiling with a beer in his hand.

Jeremy wrote: “Crazy looking at the path of growing up I have great friends that know who they are and I may not show them how much I appreciate the help they have given me as well as support from management etc.”

He added: “I’m very grateful and wanna thank everyone who has helped me.”

The news comes after Stephanie Davis, who he shares a child with, confessed she still loves Jeremy despite him not having anything to do with her during her pregnancy.

The reality star has since taken a DNA test which proved he is the father of her baby and has since vowed to stand by her and his child.

However, Jeremy is apparently banned from seeing their son Caben-Albi until he has straightened himself out.

She claims Jeremy has admitted to having a drug problem and is planning on going to rehab for six weeks to get help.

And Stephanie is pleased Jeremy is doing something about the issue, admitting she has always loved him.

She told OK! Online: “It’s not because he doesn’t love me, it’s because he’s totally in despair.

“He isn’t a bad person, deep down, he’s not an evil vindictive person. I’m not an idiot and I’m not a mug. He knows how absolutely lucky he is to have another chance with me. He knows how bad he’s been. But I do love him. I never stopped loving him.”
