Arthur Collins, a former boyfriend of Farney McCann’s prison, found love with the Take Me Out contestant.
Arthur, 29, is currently serving 20 years in the Woodhill Prison in Milton Keynes after an acid attack at a London nightclub in 2017, in which sixteen people suffered chemical burns and three were temporarily blind.
But according to a new report, this hasn’t stopped dating show star Gemma Elliott, 29, from starting a new relationship, which he is said to have known for years.

Tough times: Ferne was pregnant with her daughter on Sunday, then boyfriend Arthur threw corrosive acid on the dance floor at the mangle E8 in Dalston in April 2017, just weeks after announcing her pregnancy
Ferne was pregnant with her daughter on Sunday when her boyfriend Arthur threw corrosive acid in the weeks following the announcement of her pregnancy.
Last year, the former TOWIE star admitted she had previously struggled to be a single parent as she reflected on the challenges she faced raising her own child.
Farney said: ‘I think I’m one of those people who has the wrong idea about single parents, because I didn’t want to be called a single parent when I was pregnant.
‘I don’t want to be labeled with it because I haven’t come to terms with the fact that I’m still going to be a single parent. As long as I am starting to live and be, I am really proud.
Ferney recalled doing ‘360 overnight’ as he described it: ‘Now it’s perfectly fine to call myself a lone parent because the reality is I am. The misconception is not that you failed, but obviously you do not plan to be a single parent – although I know some people do.
