Reality TV Star Jeremy McConnell is rumoured to appear on the upcoming Celebrity Naked Attraction that is supposedly going to air as part of a Stand Up to Cancer special. The Irish celebrity has recently suffered a massive career setback after he was convicted of assaulting his ex-girlfriend Stephanie Davies. The 27-year-old was sentenced in August 2017 to twenty weeks in prison for the crime, although the sentence was suspended for 12 months and he was ordered to carry out 200 hours of community service in its place.

The result is that the star’s career has hit a new low. One source told The Sun:
“He's hit rock bottom and thinks that doing this show for a good cause could help turn his public profile around, even if it does mean getting naked.
“He's not ashamed of his tackle.”
Jeremy first gained some fame after he appeared in MTV’s Beauty School Cop Out’s and went on to appear on Ex on the Beach and Celebrity Big Brother. Now he’s looking to reinvigorate his flaccid celebrity status by getting it all out on Naked Attraction, a Channel 4 show whose gimmick is that people choose dates based on their naked bodies. The show garnered a fair bit of controversy and viewership with its unflinching portrayal of full-on frontal nudity, complete with labia, foreskins, and infected hair follicles for all to see.
Channel 4, however, are adamant that Jeremy isn’t going to appear simply because “We have not commissioned Celebrity Naked Attraction.” At least that’s what they’re saying, but so far leaks and rumours have incessant in saying that the show is real and will be announced pretty soon. That didn’t stop Jeremy McConnell from denying the rumours either.
“False,” he tweeted in response to the breaking story.

Jeremy recently appeared on Jeremy Kyle where he discussed his recent behaviour, including troubles with drinking and violence that led him to the unfortunate position he’s currently in. According to previous lovers Jeremy is pretty well endowed, so who knows? Maybe he has sufficient length to go all the way and get back on the screen in a big way.
Or… it’s a sad attempt by a flailing celebrity to gather some attention before slowly fading away into obscurity forever and ever.
I guess we’ll just have to see.
