Jeremy McConnell could end up "begging on the street" as his worried pals point out he has no life skills – after he vows to quit showbiz and focus on seeing his toddler son Caben-Albi.
The shamed Celebrity Big Brother star has nothing to fall back on after giving up the spotlight, telling Jeremy Kyle on today’s show that the only way to resume contact with his boy is to get out of the fame game now that the job offers have dried up.
But friends warn he could end up homeless and begging for money as he’s so useless.
"Jeremy has no qualifications or profession, he can’t even use the washing machine," a pal exclusively reveals to Mirror Online. "He can’t make the bed – let alone do a 9 to 5 job.
"Look at his community service, he was completely useless.
"We are all so worried he will become homeless as despite what he said on Jeremy Kyle we know if he has any savings they are running out fast."
The 28-year-old tattooed thug had previously burnt bridges with friends who gave him a roof over his head while he was doing community service in Cardiff for violently beating his ex, Stephanie Davis – and he repaid them by smearing his own excrement over his bedroom during a five-day bender.
"He betrayed pals by leaving their flat in a state, he can’t cook or clean. Everyone is so worried he is going to end begging in the streets, which is such a shame as it’s a huge fall from grace for the model who could have cut glass with his jawline," our source continued.
"Now he’s just a former drug addict with a criminal record. We all want the best for Jeremy but he needs some serious life skills."
However, a separate source claims Jeremy has had job offers.
Jeremy had previously dabbled in semi-professional football before turning to modelling and fame.
His first TV stint was on MTV’s Beauty School Cop Out, where he starred opposite Scarlett Moffatt (and even snogged her for a dare.
His next brush with public attention came in January 2016 when he entered the CBB house – and met Stephanie, who fell pregnant with their child just three months later.
Since then, Jez’s life has gone from bad to worse, as a cocaine addiction left him spiralling out of control and becoming increasingly paranoid.
He was convicted in August 2017 of attacking Steph at her home in Liverpool while she was holding Caben, then eight weeks old, in her arms.
The court heard how he furiously accused her of having affairs with friends and neighbours while inflicting bruises and a bite mark on her skin.
The shamed reality star showed a glimmer of remorse today as he broke down on the Jeremy Kyle Show under questions from the presenter about his future.
The ex- CBB star admitted that there were legal channels available to him to establish contact with his son, but that he hadn’t got round to doing so.
Asked how he was going to provide a future for Caben, he said: "I think the best way to do this is to get out of the game. Obviously the job offers – I’m not coming on here for damage control, I know my career’s over on TV, no-one’s going to touch me with a 10ft pole.
"My name is tarnished, I accept that."
A statement from Jeremy claimed he would no longer be speaking about Steph as he takes his bow from the public stage.
"Thank you to Jeremy Kyle for allowing me to speak on the show," he said.
"This is the last time I am going to speak publicly about my previous relationship, it is a line under this part of my life and hopefully everyone can move on.
"My focus is getting my self on track so I can see my son," he added.
Mirror Online has contacted Jeremy’s rep for comment.
