Ferne McCann 'dumps' boyfriend Arthur Collins as police continue to hunt him over a nightclub acid attack

Ferne McCann is believed to have ‘dumped’ her boyfriend as he is wanted in relation to an acid nightclub attack.

The TOWIE star has deleted all traces of Arthur Collins from her social media accounts, fuelling speculation the couple have split.

‘She is sending a clear message that their relationship is over,’ a source close to Ferne said.

‘It’s like she’s wiping him from her life by erasing any trace of their time together.

‘The past few days have been devastating, and this is a way of showing Arthur he is no longer part of her life.’

Detectives want to speak to Collins and two other men over a row at Mangle nightclub in Dalston, East London, on Easter Monday.

The incident left 20 people – two seriously – injured with chemical burns.

Ferne’s spokesman has confirmed she was not at Mangle nightclub at the time of the incident.

She has also urged Collins to give himself up.

Meanwhile, police have since confirmed that they raided Collins’ £1 million family home in Broxbourne, Herts.


Officers allegedly found cannabis, drug-farming equipment and illegal firearms at the home.

As the police investigation continues, Ferne is ‘taking time off’ from her presenting role on ITV’s This Morning.

‘In light of recent events, Ferne’s management have asked if she can take some time off filming,’ reported MailOnline.
