Woman jokes about Jeremy McConnell on community service

Jeremy McConnell appears to have been making friends with a convicted benefits cheat while on community service.

The 27-year-old Irishman was convicted of attacking his ex-girlfriend Stephanie Davis this month and ordered to complete 200 hours of unpaid work.

He has been joined by 25-year-old Chanice Bowen, who was found guilty of claiming £22,000 as a single mother – before posting photographs of her wedding on Facebook.

Bowen joked on social media: ‘What a day with them brushes @jeremymcconnell’ and added a laughing emoji.

Bowen later deleted the tweet before adding it was: ‘nice meeting you today, hope your good [sic] @jeremymcconnell.’ 

Chanice Bowen, from Barry in the Vale of Glamorgan, hid her marriage to Lee Mapstone for three years and told the authorities he had moved out.

The 25-year-old was caught out when she posted a slideshow of images from her wedding online with the caption: ‘Best years of my life, loves my husband.’

She pleaded guilty to three counts of dishonestly failing to disclose information after being overpaid a total of £21,696.76 between January 2013 and November 2015. 

Dublin native McConnell, meanwhile, has been forced to trade in his lavish celebrity lifestyle in order to carry out his community service.

The model, who rose to fame on Celebrity Big Brother last year, was convicted of throwing around Miss Davis ‘like a rag doll’ on March 9, leaving her battered and bruised. 

He was handed a 20-week sentence suspended for a year at Liverpool Magistrates Court on September 13. 

Under Government regulations, unemployed convicts must do three or four days of their community punishment a week, while those who have jobs are expected to fit it in outside work hours – on evenings and weekends. 

He narrowly avoided jail, as Judge Wendy Lloyd slammed him for showing ‘no remorse’, despite attacking his ex-Hollyoaks star lover while she held their baby son Caben-Albi in her arms. 

On top of the unpaid work, during which time he works alongside other convicts and wears high visibility clothing, he was forced to pay Miss Davis £1,000 compensation and a further £1,000 in court costs.

Jeremy McConnell’s agent declined to comment.
