The Only Way is Essex star Mike Hassini has been arrested on a drugs charge.

The former TOWIE cast member has been charged in connection with the supply of Class A drugs, the Metropolitan Police has confirmed.

According to The Sun, Hassini and a friend were arrested earlier in April after a property Hassini had been living at was searched. An unnamed woman was also arrested but was later released pending inquiries.

TOWIE returned to our screens for its 28th series last month, with original series one cast member Harry Derbridge returning to the show.

However, the series lost another of its stars when Yazmin Oukhellou quit after four years on the show, explaining that she had decided to pursue a career in real estate in Dubai following her break-up with fellow cast member James Lock.

The Only Way Is Essex airs on ITVBe.
