Jamie Lomas hits Kym Marsh's boyfriend?
'EastEnders' star Jamie Lomas has been accused of punching his ex-wife Kym Marsh's latest boyfriend Matt Baker during a nightclub row
Jamie Lomas has been accused of attacking ex-wife Kym Marsh's latest boyfriend.
The 'EastEnders' actor faces police questioning over claims he punched personal trainer Matt Baker - who recently ended his relationship with 'Coronation Street' star Kym - in Manchester nightclub Panacea on Saturday night (05.04.14).
According to eyewitnesses, Matt, 24, was taken "completely by surprise" as Jamie, 33, confronted him and hit him. Matt then retreated upstairs in a bid to diffuse the situation, but the former 'Hollyoaks' star is accused of following him and tried to start another fight with Matt before security and staff intervened.
An onlooker told The Sun newspaper: "Jamie seemingly came from nowhere and managed to blindside Matt and hit him straight in the eye.
"Matt's a tough guy but it caught him completely by surprise. When he went to retaliate a group of guys stopped it.
"Matt decided to remove himself from the situation, but Jamie quickly followed and tried to punch him again. However staff stepped in and prevented it, reminding Jamie they had CCTV. Jamie seemed to disappear after that. Matt is still embarrassed and shaken and it's clear Jamie is not over Kym."
Jamie divorced Kym, with whom he has two-year-old daughter Polly, earlier this year.
'Corrie' star Kym, 37, called off her brief romance with Matt last week, insisting she wasn't ready for a serious relationship.
