Love Island winner Jack Fincham is due in court today over a driving on drugs charge.
The reality star was charged with driving while on cocaine and valium after being stopped by police in January of this year.
According to The Sun, Fincham was allegedly found to have 239 micrograms of benzoylecgonine, a by-product of cocaine, in his blood. He was also found to have 632 micrograms of diazepam, sedative valium, in his system.
Fincham rose to fame in 2018 after his appearance on the ITV2 reality dating show. He coupled up with ex girlfriend Dani Dyer on day one and the pair sailed through to the final, eventually winning the series.
The pair moved in together after leaving villa and announced their split some months later. At the time, Fincham said they would "always care a lot for each other" and that he wished Dani "nothing but happiness."
"We have some amazing memories together and have been through a lot but sometimes things aren't meant to be and we really did try to make it work but it unfortunately it didn't and that is life," he said.
"That's all I have to say, a break-up is heard enough as it is for both of us let alone in the public eye so I hope everyone is considerate and understands this."
Dyer later rekindled her romance with ex Sammy Kimmence, who was last week sentenced to three years in prison for scamming two pensioners. Dyer has since reportedly split from Kimmence.
Fincham also recently announced his split from girlfriend Frankie Sims last week, just two months after announcing their relationship.
He shares daughter Blossom with former romantic partner Casey Ranger while ex Dyer welcomed her son Santiago with Kimmence earlier this year.
Fincham will appear before Sevenoaks Magistrates Court today.
