Former Celebrity Big Brother star Jeremy McConnell has sparked concern after sharing a photo of a gun cartridge with his 524,000 Instagram followers.
The tattooed star, who recently demanded to see his son Caben-Albi who he shares with ex Stephanie Davis, worried fans with his latest post.
The 28-year-old star took to his Instagram story to share a photo of a gun cartridge laying on his bed alongside his dog, who was sitting nearby.

According to The Mirror, the image has caused pals to worry after Jeremy claimed he was turning over a new leaf in his life.
The photo comes after Jeremy revealed to OK! Online that he was seeking custody of the child he shares wth ex-girlfriend Stephanie Davis.
Jeremy McConnell split with Stephanie Davis for good last year, with the former couple’s on/off relationship turning toxic months after they met on Celebrity Big Brother. Steph gave birth to their son Caben-Albi last January, when the pair were no longer together.

Jeremy, who was handed a three-year restraining order in 2017 to keep away from the Hollyoaks actress, was branded a “disgrace,” by Steph in the past, slamming him for not contributing to his son’s upbringing – but now Jeremy is reportedly desperate to prove he is up to the job.
Speaking exclusively to OK! Online, Jeremy claimed his solicitors have attempted numerous times to contact Stephanie, with Jez adding he first instructed a family solicitor to make contact with Stephanie in April.
“I don’t want Caben for fame, I don’t want to be in the public eye – I’m not a***d,” Jeremy exclusively told OK! Online. “The only reason I’m coming back and doing this is the position I’m in now.
“It’s been portrayed that I’m not a***d with Caben, and that I don’t care. I’ve been trying for months to be able to see him, and before that I was trying to get my life back on track – which is very hard after losing your dad and aunty. I was going through that stage self-destruction, self-loathing, over-eating… I mean, I was eating pizza for breakfast.”
However, sources have exclusively slammed the claims to OK! Online – stating Jeremy had failed to “go down a proper route” to make contact with Caben.
“He’s a deadbeat and a liar. If he actually wanted to see Caben, he would have gone down the proper route,” a source told OK! Online.
