Jack Fincham axed from show after arrest as he quits Love Island spin-off

Jack Fincham has reportedly been axed from a new TV show after his arrest for alleged drug-driving – despite quitting an upcoming Love Island spin-off to go on it.

The former Love Island winner has denied taking drugs after he was arrested last month for allegedly drug-driving and having false plates on his car, which he has also denied.

But, according to reports, news of the arrest didn't go down well with bosses at MTV, who are said to have cut him from the upcoming series of Ex On The Beach.

To make matters worse for Jack, it was also reported this week that he had already left to film the show, after deciding it was a better fit for him than Love Island: The Games.

"Jack had turned up to filming all ready to take part in the show – but then the news broke about his arrest," a source claimed to The Sun.

"The production team quickly convened a series of crisis meetings behind the scenes and in the end it was decided the best thing to do was to send him home."

Jack, who has not been charged with anything, has denied any wrongdoing in a statement via his solicitor.

His solicitor, Conor Johnstone, of MAJ Law said: "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.

“Mr Fincham does feel as though he has become a target of Kent Police in recent months and is considering lodging a complaint against the force.”

Of the arrest, Kent Police said: "On Saturday 26 August 2023, officers arrested a 31-year-old man from Swanley on suspicion of drug driving, careless driving, driving without insurance and driving while displaying false number plates, on the A2 near Dartford.

"He has since been bailed until 26 November 2023."
