Nathan has been left reeling.

RTE yesterday revealed that they have dropped an interview with the father of American family group The Willis Clan on Nathan Carter’s new TV show, following this week’s shock revelation that he has been arrested and charged with child rape.

Nathan, along with Irish fans and friends of the Nashville-based group, including Darren Holden of The High Kings, have been left reeling by the news that father-of-12 Toby Willis (46), was arrested last Saturday and charged in Tennessee with child rape 12 years ago.

Willis is accused of raping a nine-year-old relative.

His wife Brenda issued a statement on Thursday saying: “I was shocked and devastated by the revelation of events leading to Toby Willis’s arrest. As these are very trying times for the Willis family, I kindly ask all to respect our family’s privacy."
