She was spotted sporting the marks after being released on bail after allegedly assaulting her on/off boyfriend Jeremy McConnell following a row at the Royal Chace Hotel in Enfield, north London.

After leaving the police station Stephanie was driven to a friend’s house clutching her stomach while wearing oversized grey tracksuit bottoms and a ‘blood stained’ jumper. 

Pictures have also emerged of Jeremy with two bruised eyes and a cut on his nose.

Friends claim that her ‘toxic’ boyfriend Jeremy McConnell went for her first in the brawl that led to her arrest for assault.

The former Hollyoaks actress, 24, has been bailed over the alleged attack on model McConnell at a London hotel following a drinking session.

Steph was taken to hospital by police yesterday after she became ill during questioning. Scotland Yard today confirmed she has been bailed until late July.

But explaining the circumstances leading up to Sunday’s fight, a friend of mother-of-one Steph said self-confessed alcoholic McConnell had picked the fight with her after he had fallen off the wagon.

The actress clutched her stomach as she left the police station at 3am in the morning following her arrest 

They told MailOnline: ‘Jeremy relapsed again on Sunday. He and Stephanie had a major bust up and he went for her first.

‘Stephanie has to go back to hospital today for another follow up appointment and has to be checked over by medical professionals.

‘Her friends and family all want her away from toxic Jeremy and the distress and trouble he has caused her since they met,’ they added. 

McConnell, 27, was seen nursing two black eyes and a scratched face yesterday as he boarded a flight back to his native Ireland in the wake of the row.

It came as a witness to the bloody aftermath of the incident at the four-star Royal Chace Hotel in Enfield said more than 10 police officers were brought in to deal with the couple.

A guest who was staying on the same floor as the pair said she returned to her room after the incident and feared a terrorist attack had unfolded due to the number of emergency services at the scene.

The woman, who asked not to be named, told MailOnline: ‘Steph was walking away with a woman police officer, being held up because she was stumbling, and he was in a room. Hotel staff were bringing ice to him. There was lots of bloody towels and things around.

‘She was taken to an ambulance and I think later arrested. It was a terrible thing to see. They are just kids really and had too much alcohol, I think.’

Earlier in the day, the pair are said to have clashed outside a Wetherspoon’s pub in Enfield after spending hours drinking in the lead-up to Steph’s arrest.

One pub-goer said: ‘They were in the pub for almost the whole day and being incredibly hard to deal with. Jeremy then vanished in a taxi leaving Steph on her own. Her phone was smashed to pieces.

‘From what I saw it doesn’t seem to be a healthy relationship but I didn’t think it was any of my business.’

Pub regulars said Jeremy got into a cab around 9.30pm and Davis stayed at the bar for more beer before heading back to their hotel, where she was arrested around 11pm over claims she assaulted McConnell.

Black cab driver Roger Osborn, 68, had gone to the pub for a quiet drink with his friends after a long weekend of work.

He said: ‘I got here at about 9pm and they were already here and they had had plenty of drink. It looked like he was bullying her and she was shouting at him as well.

‘At one point he had a go at us and started swearing at some of the other customers. We didn’t get involved. We just wanted to come down to our local and have a drink and we didn’t want any trouble.

‘He was being aggressive but she was giving it back as well. They were both pretty drunk and they were as bad as each other.’

On Saturday, the day before the alleged attack, Steph had told her 400,000 followers she was planning to let her hair down when her aunt looked after her baby. She later deleted the tweet

McConnell told of his ‘explosive’ relationship with Stephanie Davis days before her arrest

Jeremy McConnell spoke about his ‘explosive’ relationship with girlfriend Stephanie Davis in an interview just days before her arrest for GBH.

Speaking to Closer Magazine‘s therapist Emma Kenny for this week’s magazine, which went to press last week before Stephanie’s arrest on Sunday night, Jeremy admits that the Celebrity Big Brother couple both struggle to contain their emotions.

Of his tumultuous relationship with Stephanie, Jeremy says: ‘It’s really up and down. We love each other, but we are both very insecure people and have a lot of arguments.’

‘A couple of weeks ago I had a big argument with Steph and locked myself in a hotel room and cried for hours. I desperately wanted her to come and hug me and tell me I was going to be alright,’ he says.

He ended the interview by agreeing that he and Stephanie should seek couple’s counselling, admitting: ‘I know we need to handle our emotions better.’ 

Pub witness Mr Osborn said McConnell left for ‘about ten minutes’ before returning and shouting at a man talking to Davis. 

He added: ‘Then he left and it wasn’t much longer until closing time and she left. He was being a bully and it was getting nasty, but she was shouting back at him as well.

‘You just don’t want to see or hear that when you want a quiet drink, everyone in the pub was getting angry.’ 

Davis has reportedly been dropped from her role on Channel 5’s Big Brother‘s Bit On The Side in the wake of her arrest, although Channel 5 have refused to comment.

Police said McConnell’s injuries were not serious and the Irishman was treated at the scene by paramedics and did not need hospital treatment. He flew back to his home town of Dublin yesterday.

But pictures show him with two black eyes, a scratch to his nose and face a blood-shot left eye.

Another woman who apparently witnessed the fight later tweeted the couple, telling McConnell his behaviour was ‘awful’ and telling Steph: ‘I hope your ok.’

A Scotland Yard spokesman said yesterday: ‘Police in Enfield were called to a hotel in The Ridgeway, EN2 at 11pm on Sunday, 2 July following reports of an assault.

‘Officers attended and arrested a 24-year-old woman on suspicion of GBH. She has been taken to a north London police station for questioning. 

‘She was subsequently taken to hospital after becoming unwell where she remains at this time. Her condition is not believed to be serious.

‘The victim was treated at the scene and did not attend hospital. Enquiries continue.’ 

The couple’s rocky relationship began after they starred together on Celebrity Big Brother in January last year.

But they then became embroiled in a toxic romance which first ended a month before she announced she was expecting his baby. 

McConnell initially denied paternity of the child, but was proved to be the father and moved to be with Davis in Liverpool.

They became parents in January when Steph gave birth to son Caben-Albi. It is understood the youngster was not with them on Sunday.

The pair were staying at the Royal Chace Hotel while Davis films Big Brother’s Bit On The Side.

Whilst Stephanie has found renewed fame this year as a ‘relationship expert’ on Big Brother’s Bit On The Side, while sources say Jeremy is in ‘self-destruct mode’.

His friends and family are said to be very concerned about him, after an evening out two weeks ago ended with him leaving a club and sleeping on a park bench.

MailOnline was told he was escorted out of ‘Dstrkt’ nightclub during the Sixty6 Magazine Summer launch party, but was later allowed back in.

Sources close to couple have said that, before Sunday’s incident, the couple were planning to move to the country together.

Insiders told MailOnline: ‘Stephanie and Jeremy have told friends and family of their plans to move to the countryside and have begun looking at properties in Norfolk. 

‘Stephanie and Jeremy have both earned well so are going to put their money into a country cottage, Stephanie has previously been to Norfolk for work and loved how remote it was’.

Sunday’s alleged attack comes less than a week after Davis’ mother, Pauline, posted cryptic messages online after labeling McConnell a ‘scumbag’.

She shared a quote reading: ‘Who you spend time with will have a great impact on what kind of life you live’. Another said: ‘You can either let your heart rule your mind or your mind rule your heart.’ 

MailOnline has contacted both Stephanie and Jeremy’s representatives for comment.
