Danniella Westbrook's ex-fiancé arrested for allegedly assaulting and harassing her

Danniella Westbrook's ex-fiancé Tom Richards has been arrested for allegedly assaulting and harassing her.

The 25-year-old MMA fighter was arrested on Sunday morning (12.04.15) in Swansea, Wales, and after being held in a cell for 11 hours, Tom was bailed at 7pm as the police continue their investigations.

A spokesperson for Tom strongly denied the accusations, saying: "There is no truth in these allegations and we will be challenging them.

"This is supposed to have happened where Danniella lives in Essex but Tom can prove he was here in Swansea at the time.

"It is upsetting for him because he is training for a fight and could do without the distraction.

"Due to the seriousness of these allegations that's all we can say at the moment."

And following his release from police custody, Tom tweeted: "Finally getting into bed after such a long day, cheers for all messages will reply tmz on here and other social media,#TeamBabyBoy (sic)."

The arrest was made after the 41-year-old 'Hollyoaks' actress claimed he had been violent towards her, posting an image of her bruised hand on Twitter.

It is the second time he's faced claims of violence against Danniella, having previously been accused of giving her a black eye, but on that occasion, he was released without charge.
