Stephanie Davis Breaks Down On Loose Women As She Recalls The Moment She Attempted To Commit Suicide
The CBB runner-up also revealed how she broke up with Sam Reece...
We can imagine it’s been a whirlwind couple of days for Celebrity Big Brother runner-up Stephanie Davis with the star now opening up about her struggles in the past - and how CBB has helped her.
This afternoon (Tuesday 9th February), the ex Hollyoaks actress was a guest on ITV’s Loose Women, giving her first interview since leaving the Celebrity Big Brother house.
When asked if she had looked at any of her antics on the Channel 5 show she admitted that most of what she had heard made her cringe. She said: “Quite a lot of things I’ve been like ‘I can’t watch.”
The Loose Women ladies picked up on her low self-esteem when talking about her past which led to Stephanie opening up about the time she tried to commit suicide.
She revealed: “A few years ago I didn’t have a lot of self worth and didn’t really believe in myself, and got taken advantage of a lot. It all got too much and I ended up taking an overdose, thinking I couldn’t see myself getting out of this.”
Visibly upset by recalling this situation, the CBB star was choked up as she continued: “It was really tough, it’s taken me a lot to realise I deserve more.”
When prompted to elaborate on what had happened, she added: “I took it at home because I lived on my own. I didn’t have anyone at home. Then I panicked so I called an ambulance. But then I couldn’t see and I don’t remember what happened.”
“The hard part was when I realised when I was alright and I wanted to be here they were like ‘well you could be in organ failure and you still might…’ and I was just so frustrated and angry with myself.”
Stephanie also went on to reveal how she’d been treated badly in previous relationships while admitting she already knew her ex-boyfriend Sam Reece had allegedly cheated on her.
She said: “I know Sam cheated on me time and time again, I was only staying with him because of what happened in my past. Yes, it’s definitely over and I’m with Jeremy now.” Meanwhile, Sam denies ever cheating on Stephanie.
The 22-year-old also revealed how she finally ended it with Sam, saying: “I sent a text the next day [after the CBB final] at some point and just said, ‘it’s nice to see you’ve making money off the back of it.”
She continued: “Now you’ve got your own money I don’t have to pay for everything. Good luck with everything and I’ve finally met someone who really does love me for me.”
And apparently, Jeremy is flying over from Ireland to see her this evening, maybe it is true love?
