Irish reality star Jeremy McConnell jailed for skipping community service
Former Celebrity Big Brother contestant Jeremy McConnell has been jailed for failing to attend court ordered community service.

The 27 year old was told he would be jailed at Cardiff Magistrates Court on Thursday.
He reportedley skipped the community service to get a hair transplant in Turkey.
Before heading to court, McConnell wrote on Instagram: "If I don’t see yas have a good Christmas."
He was found guilty of assaulting Davis at an address in Rainhill, Merseyside on March 10.
