Celebrity Big Brother star Jeremy McConnell has been jailed for breaching a community order by flying to Turkey for a hair transplant.
The star was told he will spend 18 weeks behind bars over Christmas as Cardiff Magistrates’ Court activated his suspended jail term.
McConnell posted on his Instagram Story, before entering court “If I don’t see yas have a good Christmas” shortly before attending court.
The court handed McConnell a suspended sentence in August after hearing he had thrown the mother of his child Stephanie Davis “around like a rag doll” as she held their baby son.
He had been sentenced to 20 weeks in prison, suspended for 12 months, and told to attend a Building Better Relationships course,as well as carrying out 200 hours community service.
The Sun reported that he had stopped turning up to his community service to get a hair and beard transplant at Hair of Istanbul in Turkey.
A source told the paper: “Jeremy has been reckless and stupid to think that the law wouldn’t catch up with him.
“He skipped dates so he could go out partying with his mates in Turkey and now it’s caught up with him.
“He’s had a hair transplant but the price could be a stint behind bars.
“He’s put his hands up though and will face the music on Thursday.
“Jeremy doesn’t seem that bothered about going back into court but that could all change depending on what the judge decides.”
