Dan Osborne has been suspended from 'the Only Way is Essex' amid claims he threatened to stab his ex-girlfriend
Dan Osborne has been suspended from 'The Only Way is Essex'.
The 24-year-old hunk - who welcomed daughter Ella, his first child with girlfriend Jacqueline Jossa, into the world last month - has been told to stay away from the show while bosses investigate footage of a foul-mouthed rant against former lover Megan Tomlin, in which he apparently threatened to stab the mother of his 14-month-old son Teddy.
A show spokesperson told The Sun newspaper: "We will be speaking to Dan about this. In the meantime he will not be taking part in filming."
The decision comes after a recording was published at the weekend of Dan apparently threatening 23-year-old Megan if she found another man, despite them splitting over a year ago.
It is believed the recording dates from last November, when Dan was arrested for assault but later released without charge.
Last month, the reality star voluntarily underwent police questioning after Megan alleged he physically and verbally abused her during arguments over the holiday period.
A police spokesperson said: "A 23-year-old man from Barking voluntarily attended a pre-arranged police interview on February 23. The investigation remains ongoing."
Referring to Megan's complaint, a spokesperson said: "Police were contacted at around 12.30pm on January 30 with reports of historic domestic incidents. Investigations are ongoing."
