Jeremy McConnell was sentenced to 20 weeks in prison, suspended for 12 months after being found guilty of attacking Stephanie Davis.

And hours after he was released on Friday 11 August, Jeremy was seen practicing his 'jabbing' skills in a video captioned "#notguilty" on his friend’s Instagram page – despite being found guilty in court.

Earlier in the day, the 27 year old was spotted heading through the arrival gates of Dublin airport as his friends welcomed him home following his court battle.

Although he was found guilty of assault, his friends also held up a huge "not guilty" banners as he arrived in the capital, with Jeremy flashing a smile at his friends as he headed home.

Prior to Jeremy's sentencing, Stephanie’s lawyers demanded a restraining order for the former Hollyoaks star.

The terms of the order are that the Irish model is "not to contact directly or indirectly, by any means Stephanie Davis, except by solicitors or as directed by the family court for the purposes of child contact and he is not to enter the road Steph lives on".

The prosecution said Stephanie had suffered bruising to her arms and head, as well as a bite mark after the incident. The actress did not attend court.

Representatives for Jeremy said his relationship with Stephanie was "volatile" and that he was willing to pay for any damages he caused during the incident.

During the testimony, Stephanie Davis broke down as she recalled the incident, which took place at her home in Merseyside on March 9.

The court heard that the former Hollyoaks star, 24, "feared for her life" on the night of the attack as Jeremy "grabbed her face and took her phone before throwing her around like a rag doll and getting her in a headlock," The Mirror reports.
