After reality-star-turned-television-presenter Ferne McCann revealed that she had recently rekindled her romance with her former boyfriend Arthur Collins after posting loved-up selfies and discussing wedding plans, we of course wanted to know everything about him.

Buton Tuesday evening (19 April),it was revealed that police wanted to speak to Arthur Collins over the acid attack that took place in an east London nightclub, an incident that left 20 partygoers with burns.

Police say he should not be approached and anyone who sees him should call 999 immediately,and Ferne has since released a statement urging Arthur to go straight to the police.

In a statement, the rep said: "Ferne is aware that the police wish to speak to Arthur Collins and the nature of the accusations against him.

"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."
