Jeremy McConnell has been released from prison.

The former "Celebrity Big Brother" star was put behind bars for 18 weeks after he breached his community service order, but it appears he behaved himself while he was locked up as he been released in time for New Year - after serving just 34 days.

After leaving prison this week, he told followers on Instagram: "Thanks for all your messages. I've read so much lies and it's incredible. Have a good New Year."

Jeremy, 28, was slapped with 200 hours of community service in August - narrowly missing out on prison - after he was found guilty of assaulting his ex-girlfriend Stephanie Davis while she was holding their now-11-month-old son Caben.

But he hit the headlines just days after he started the unpaid work in Glasgow, Scotland, as he allegedly refused to scrub off some graffiti as he believed the spray-painted wall was created by famous artist Banksy.

A source said previously: "He has refused to scrub graffiti because he believes the artwork is a Banksy - and he's told officials.

"A decision is yet to be made about Jeremy and how he will continue his community service going forward. He could end up in real trouble over it."

He then jetted off to Turkey without permission - breaching the terms and conditions of his suspended sentence - to get a hair transplant and new teeth.

He appeared at Cardiff Magistrates Court at the end of November regarding the breach and was slapped with an 18-week prison sentence.

As well as his community service, Jeremy was also ordered to pay £1,000 in court costs, £1,000 in compensation to Stephanie and a victims surcharge of £115.

He's also been told to stay away from Stephanie, 24, for three years and any communication regarding Caben has to be done via social service or the family court.
