Former Love Island winner Kem Cetinay was involved in a fatal road accident.
The reality star, who won the ITV dating show in 2017, is said to be “devastated” after his Mercedes G-Wagon collided with a motorbike in Romford, Essex on Thursday morning.
Despite rescue workers, the motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene.
A source told MailOnline that Kem was “traumatized” by the incident and is cooperating with the police.
“Kem is devastated by what happened. He’s a sensible driver; no one could have foreseen this tragic accident,” the insider said.
“There was no wrongdoing on Kem’s part, he is not at fault and is being treated as a witness by the police. He’s still dealing with the shock along with close friends and family.”
A statement from the Metropolitan Police confirmed: “Police were called at 11:32am on Thursday 4 August to receive reports of a collision at Shepherds Hill, Romford.
“Police and London Ambulance Service [LAS] took part. A car collided with a motorcycle at the scene.
“Despite the efforts of paramedics, the male motorcyclist [no further details] was unfortunately pronounced dead at the scene at 12:04 p.m. An investigation is underway to notify relatives.
“The driver of the car stopped at the scene and is assisting the police in their investigation. He was not arrested.”

And in a statement, Kem’s rep said: “Kem was involved in a traffic accident near his home in the Brentwood area around 11.30am this morning (Thursday).
“Tragically, a motorcyclist died in the collision. Kem assists the police and is only treated as a witness to the incident.
“Kem will have no further comment on this matter other than to offer his deepest condolences, prayers and sympathy to the family and friends of the motorcyclist.”
Kem won series three of Love Island in 2017 with former girlfriend Amber Davies.
The couple quit four months after raising the crown and collecting the £50,000 cash prize but have remained friends since their split.
