Ferne McCann’s jailed ex boyfriend Arthur Collins has allegedly found love with a Take Me Out contestant.  

Arthur, 29, is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence at Woodhill Prison, Milton Keynes, after carrying out an acid attack at a London nightclub in 2017 which saw sixteen people suffer chemical burn injuries and three people left temporarily blinded.

But according to a new report, this has not stopped him from embarking on a new relationship with dating show star Gemma Elliott, 29, who he is said to have known for several years.

She previously lived and worked in Dubai for two years as a PR events coordinator for night club Cirque Le Soir.

More recently, she has also created her own clothing brand and is now based in Manchester.

Mother-of-one Ferne, 31, dumped Arthur, with whom she has four-year-old daughter Sunday, after ­learning he had thrown acid over an East London nightclub crowd. 

Sources informed The Sun that Arthur and Gemma are ‘officially a couple’ despite his two-decade jail sentence.  

Several days before Christmas, Northern Ireland native Gemma shared a photo of the pair before he was jailed, tagging an account thought to belong to Arthur with two hearts.

A comment penned by the aforementioned profile read ‘My Girl ❤️❤️❤️❤️’ to which Gemma replied ‘love u ❤️’. 

The source told the publication: ‘Arthur might be banged up but that hasn’t stopped him sweet-talking her from the inside. They became romantic last year and are officially a couple.’

As reported by The Sun, Woodhill chiefs ordered a search of Arthur’s cell after learning of the posts but no phone was found. 

It is not known if he has access to a phone or whether someone is active on the account on his behalf. 

MailOnline has contacted Woodhill Prison for comment.

Ferne was pregnant with her daughter Sunday when then boyfriend Arthur threw corrosive acid over a crowd on the dance floor at Mangle E8 in Dalston in April 2017, within weeks of their pregnancy announcement.

Last year, the former TOWIE star confessed she previously ‘struggled to come to terms’ with being a single parent as she reflected on the challenges she has faced raising a child on her own.   

Ferne said: ‘I guess I was one of those people that might have had a misconception about single parenting, because I didn’t want to be called a single parent when I was pregnant.

‘I didn’t want to be labelled with it, because I hadn’t come to terms with the fact I was going to be a single parent yet. Until I started living and being it, that was when I felt really proud.

Ferne recalled doing a ‘360 overnight’ as she elaborated: ‘Now I feel totally fine being called a single parent because the fact is, I am. The misconception is not that you’ve failed, but obviously you don’t plan to be a single parent – although I know some people do.’
