Arthur Collins, Ferne McCann's boyfriend is currently being hunted by police authorities for allegedly staging an acid attack at Mangle E8 club in Hackney, east of London. Since her name is attached to her boyfriend, the producer of "This Morning" has advised her not to film for a couple of weeks in the wake of the issue.
According to the show's producer, they are a wholesome, family-oriented show and the news carrying her name is detrimental to the show. Future appearances of McCann have not been planned according to a source as reported by Mirror.
The blogger/presenter admitted in an interview that she plans to marry Collins but after the acid attack incident, she is now distancing from him. She unfollowed him on social media.
McCann was not with her boyfriend when the incident happened. An eyewitness said that there was no indication that it was bound to happen. Police authorities are now hunting for him to shed light on the attack that left 20 people injured. According to the police, two groups were in a dispute that resulted in the attack.
According to BBC, the "The Only Way Is Essex" star urged Collins to see the police authorities immediately. She also wants to know the truth about the accusations against her boyfriend. His home was raided and a cannabis farm and illegal firearms were discovered.
Twelve people were brought to a hospital for treatment, at least two people claimed that they were unable to see. A witness said that there were two black people and their faces turned white after acid landed on their faces.
Ferne McCann, unfortunately, has been dragged into the incident. The consequences are grave knowing how she worked to rise to fame. Stay tuned for updates on her "This Morning" show and the update on the manhunt for Collins.
