Ferne's boyfriend is wanted by police
Merely days ago, Ferne McCann declared her belief that boyfriend Arthur Collins was ‘the one’.
How quickly things change – because as of Wednesday morning (19th April), Ferne has deleted all trace of him from her Instagram profile, amid the shock announcement that he is wanted for questioning in relation to an acid attack in Hackney.
Arthur, 25, is being urged by police to visit a station as soon as possible after 12 people were injured in an acid attack in Hackney club, Mangle, over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend.
Among the party-goers at the night in question includes TOWIE stars Jamie Reed, Jade Lewis and Chloe Meadows, as well as Jamie O’Hara’s cousin Sadie, who was one of the victims and suffered burns.
However, 26-year-old Ferne was not present, and has stated, through a spokesperson, that she wants Arthur to co-operate with the police. Amid the controversy, she has also removed a recent photo of them on holiday from her social media…awkward!
There’s no word as of yet about the status of their relationship – but this is undoubtedly a difficult hurdle for them to overcome together.
‘Ferne is aware that the police wish to speak to Arthur Collins and the nature of the accusations against him,’ a statement for the ex-TOWIE star reads.
‘Obviously these are highly shocking and Ferne has co-operated with the police in their inquiries.
‘She was not with Arthur on Sunday night, was not at Mangle, and has no direct knowledge of the events that unfolded.
‘As much as anybody she wants to know the truth and urges Arthur to co-operate fully with the police and attend a police station immediately.’
