A devastating car crash in Hornchurch, Greater London, involving Love Island contestant Kem Cetinay, has sadly left a motorcyclist dead and Kem incredibly 'shaken', according to eye witness testimony. The accident is reported to have occurred after the biker crashed into Kem's Mercedes G-Wagon 4x4.

It is said that the reality star has been helping police with enquiries and is not at fault. A representative for him told the press: "Kem was involved in a road traffic accident close to his home in the Brentwood area at approximately 11.30am. Tragically, a motorcyclist died in the collision. Kem has been assisting the police and is being treated purely as a witness to the incident.

"Kem will be making no further comment on this matter aside to offer his deepest condolences, prayers and sympathies to the motorcyclist's family and friends."

An unnamed person who witnessed the collision told The Sun, "I feel for him. He watched someone die in front of his eyes. We all recognised him. He was talking to someone on the phone saying that there had been a smash and that he was worried.

"He was completely in shock."

The man who witnessed the crash added, "He did nothing wrong. There were about six witnesses and we all saw what happened. The biker had overtaken us all and ended up on the wrong side of the road when he smashed head-on into Kem's car at about 60mph on a 30mph road.

"The driver of the motorbike flew about 20ft into the air before landing on the road."

Kem found success on dating show Love Island back in 2017 when he went on to win the series with Welsh theatre performer, Amber Davies. Following the show, he went on to open his own bar, Array, which he has described as his "greatest achievement" – the accident took place just 800 yards away from it.

Our thoughts are with all those involved in the tragic accident (and their loved ones who may be impacted).
