The reality hunk sparked rumours last night that he had called time on their relationship when he posted a suggestive message on Twitter.
It read: “Hi everyone, I will no longer be supporting Stephanie Davis… Thanks for all your support and love you have given me!!”
However, Sam’s spokesperson has now set the record straight, confirming he did not break up with the Celebrity Big Brother star as previously thought.
“We can confirm that Stephanie Davis and Sam Reece remain together as a couple,” an official statement read. “Sam’s post last night related to coming off social media due to the unprecedented amount of attention her storyline is getting in Celebrity Big Brother.
“Sam & Stephanie remain strong as a couple and will address any rumours upon her leaving the house.”
According to a source close to the couple, Sam’s tweet came yesterday evening after he was inundated with cruel messages about his relationship.
“He’s getting so much social media attention and people are saying such awful things,” the source explained. “It all just got a bit much for him and he just wanted to take a back on social media because of that. That’s all.
“It’s difficult when your girlfriend and your relationship are thrown into the public eye like that. But he knows what the score is.”
