TV star Ferne McCann has urged her boyfriend Arthur Collins to "co-operate fully" with a police investigation into an acid attack
Ferne McCann has urged her boyfriend Arthur Collins to "co-operate fully" with police following an acid attack at a nightclub in London.
The police are eager to speak to Arthur about the attack at Mangle nightclub, where 20 victims were doused with a corrosive substance.
A representative for Ferne said: "Ferne is aware that the police wish to speak to Arthur Collins and the nature of the accusations against him.
"Obviously these are highly shocking and Ferne has co-operated with the police in their inquiries. She was not with Arthur on Sunday night; was not at Mangle; and has no direct knowledge of the events that unfolded."
Ferne, 26, has implored her boyfriend to go to a police station to discuss the incident with officers.
The rep continued: "As much as anybody she wants to know the truth and urges Arthur to co-operate fully with the police and attend a police station immediately."
Meanwhile, a statement from the Metropolitan Police read: "Arthur Collins, 25, of Hertfordshire is wanted for questioning by police. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to contact with investigators. He should not be approached by members of the public. If seen the public are advised to call 999 immediately."
The drama unfolded shortly after Ferne - who met Arthur on Instagram last summer - admitted she and her partner have already discussed the possibility of getting married.
The 'This Morning' presenter said: "We've spoken about our wedding. We want to get married on a beach. I want it to be a party and a celebration.
"I want these long extensions, mermaid-style hair covering my breasts, with flowers in my hair and no shoes. He can wear shorts and a shirt undone, then we want an amazing DJ with bongos and a saxophonist."
