Bannerman’s woes continue as police investigate new altercation
Former Eastender Marc Bannerman may well think he would have been better off staying in the Australian jungle.
Following on from a Sunday tabloid reporting that he took cocaine with prostitutes while living with his actress girlfriend Sarah Matravers, Bannerman has now been held by police after being involved in an altercation with paparazzi.
The actor was released on bail along with another man pending further investigation into an incident which took place in the car park of the Ship Inn in Wales.
The altercation came as he tried to leave the country pub with singer Cerys Matthews, with whom he is thought to be having a relationship.
“One minute everything was fine and they were having a meal and when they tried to leave they couldn’t get out,” the landlord of the ship reported.
“There were around 15 photographers around the car blocking them in the car park and they refused to let them out.”
After leaving the jungle set of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!, Bannerman admitted that he had “developed feelings for someone in there and I’ve got a missus at home”.
“I’m a rat,” he concluded.
