TOWIE star Ella Rae Wise is 'dating jailed acid attacker Arthur Collins' brother Tommy, according to a new report.
The reality star, 20, has reportedly grown close to the 25-year-old as they spent the Bank Holiday weekend together.
A source told MailOnline: "Ella and Tommy have been seeing each other for a number of weeks now and they're having a great time getting to know each other.
"They share the same group of friends and originally grew close in lockdown but they're loving being able to meet up and enjoy date nights together outside."
The Sun have contacted Ella Rae Wise's rep for comment.
The pair's romance appears to be going from strength-to-strength as Tommy was pictured with his arm wrapped around Ella, who joined Towie in 2019, over the weekend as they enjoyed cocktails while dining outside.
Ella then posted a photo on Monday to her Instagram Story from inside Tommy's car, which she captioned, 'coffee please' while sitting in the passenger seat.
Tommy is the younger brother of Arthur Collins, the ex partner of Fearne McCann, who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence after carrying out an acid attack in a London nightclub in 2017.
The 28-year-old, who's the father of Ferne's daughter, Sunday, was found guilty of the April 2017 attack after a trial at the Wood Green Crown Court.
Arthur, who was 25 at the time of the attack, was convicted of five counts of grievous bodily harm with intent, and nine counts of actual bodily harm against 14 people.
Tommy has also been in trouble with the law and pleaded guilty in 2018 to two counts of possessing a weapon and a third charge of possession cannabis.
Cops raided his family's £1million home in Essex searching for Arthur in the wake of the acid attack and found two CS gas canisters, an electric stun gun plus a quantity of cannabis weighing 68.1 grams in Tommy's bedroom.
Tommy claimed at the time that he and Arthur had only used the stun gun to playfully "zap" one another with a small electrical charge.
He was handed a six month prison sentence suspended for 18 months, a curfew of the same hours and was ordered to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work.
Ella's latest romance comes after Pete Wicks ruled out a relationship with her last month.
Pete, who is 12 years Ella's senior, apologised to the 20-year-old for playing down their secret off-screen kiss. He has admitted there is sexual tension between the pair.
But Pete, who was secretly dating Chloe Sims, 38, for two-years, ruled out another romance to instead focus on 'self-love'.
He said: "I still want the fairytale. Of course I do. Who doesn't? I would love to meet someone but there's no point putting pressure on yourself to find it or have it.
"I think one of the biggest things I've learnt through lockdown is the importance of self-love.
"It's true you can't really love someone if you don't love yourself and that's what I've been working on."
