Ferne McCann 'shocked' over boyfriend's alleged involvement in nightclub acid attack

She's reportedly urged him to go to the police 'immediately'

TOWIE star Ferne McCann has reportedly warned her boyfriend, Arthur Collins, to 'co-operate fully' with the police after being named in connection with an incident at Mangle E8 nightclub over the bank holiday weekend.

It's been reported that 20 people were injured, two seriously hurt, in the attack in the early hours of Monday morning at the club in Dalston, which saw party-goers hit with a corrosive liquid.

Metropolitan Police released the following statement yesterday: "Arthur Collins, 25, of Hertfordshire, is wanted for questioning by police.

"Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to contact with investigators.

"He should not be approached by members of the public. If seen the public are advised to call 999 immediately."

While a rep for Ferne has confirmed she was not at the event on Sunday night, according to The Sun they have 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."

The news comes shortly after Ferne gushed about wedding plans with Arthur.
