Love Island’s Jack Fincham is ‘arrested on suspicion of drug-driving and using false number plates on his car’
Jack Fincham has been arrested on suspicion of drug-driving and using false plates on his car, according to reports.
The reality star, 31, who won the 2018 series of Love Island, is said to have been stopped by police on August 26 as he travelled at high speed on the A2 near his home in Swanley, Kent.
Jack was given a blood test and held on suspicion of careless driving and driving without insurance, reports The Sun.
He was then released under investigation until November 26.
Jacks solicitor Conor Johnstone, of M.A.J Law, told the publication: ‘Mr Fincham has not been charged with drug driving and denies any drug consumption whatsoever.
‘There is no evidence at this stage that Mr Fincham drove whilst over the legal limit and we are hopeful that his blood results will prove the same.’
A source close to Jack added the reality star denies taking drugs and was using private plates rather than false ones.
MailOnline has contacted Jack Fincham‘s representatives and Kent Police for comment.
Jack is reportedly set to fly out to Fiji to appear on Love Island Games, the spin-off series where contestants enter a villa in their quest to find love.
Back in July, Jack revealed he had split from his girlfriend Jodie Ella.
Speaking as part of the Original Penguin X Campaign Against Living Miserably Under The Surface podcast, he alluded to a villa return in the wake of Adam Collard and Kady McDermott’s explosive comebacks.
When asked about Kady, Jack, who was recently linked to Chloe Brockett and Frankie Sims before his romance with Jodie, said: ‘Oh yeah of course I’d go back on the show. I’d love to. It’s like a perfect environment to meet someone…
‘You haven’t got to worry about your phone or going to work or cooking! I’m not just trying to get out of work but yeah, I’d go back on the show in a heartbeat.’
While he admitted he ‘gets a lot of attention’, Jack confessed he is ready to find lasting love, saying: ‘But actually I’m kind of ready to find someone…
‘[I want to] spend time with them. My little brother is 28 and he’s been with his girlfriend for nine years and I think wow I’d love that now.’
In 2019, Jack shockingly confessed that he doesn’t know if he’s ever been in love, despite dating Dani for nearly a year.
On Celebs Go Dating, Jack broke his silence on their split, as he explained that he thinks they moved too fast after they left the Love Island villa.
As dating agents Anna Williamson and Paul C Brunson asked if he’d ever been in love, Jack admitted: ‘I don’t know now’.
He added: ‘I had three serious girlfriends long-term… and you know, being with them, I’ve said “I love you” to all of them. Did I? I don’t know’.
He said: ‘If we had lived in Love Island forever, we’d have been fine. We rushed it straight away, we moved in together. I did want to [move in with her] but I wish we had waited.
‘I let her rush me a little bit. We had a genuine connection in there and I think anyone can see that. Honestly, and I mean this, I wish her all the happiness in the world.
‘I’m not a bitter person. Oh, 100 per cent I’m over Dani and now I want to go and meet someone. I’ve missed out on so much dating. I haven’t done it on over a year.’
