Kem Cetinay is said to have been left ‘devastated’ after being involved in a crash that left a motorcyclist dead.

According to The Sun, the former Love Island star and television presenter, 26, was reportedly driving his Mercedes G-Wagon in Romford, East London, when a biker trying to overtake cars going uphill hit Cetinay’s car, which was coming down.

A statement from the Met Police read: “Police were called at 11:32hrs on Thursday, 4 August to reports of a collision at Shepherds Hill, Romford.

“Police and London Ambulance Service [LAS] attended. At the scene, a car had been in collision with a motorcycle.

“Despite the efforts of medics, the male motorcyclist [no further details] was sadly pronounced dead at the scene at 12:04. Enquiries are underway to notify next of kin.

“The driver of the car stopped at the scene and is assisting police with their enquiries. He was not arrested.”

Cetinay’s representatives told MailOnline: “Kem was this morning (Thursday) involved in a road traffic accident close to his home in the Brentwood area at approximately 11.30am.

“Tragically, a motorcyclist died in the collision. Kem has been assisting the police and is being treated purely as a witness to the incident.

“Kem will be making no further comment on this matter aside to offer his deepest condolences, prayers and sympathies to the motorcyclist’s family and friends.”

Witnesses told The Sun that Cetinay was ‘deeply shaken’ but had managed to escape unhurt.

One said: “I feel for him. He watched someone die in front of his eyes.

“We all recognised him. He was talking to someone on the phone saying that there had been a smash and that he was worried. He was completely in shock. He did nothing wrong. There were about six witnesses and we all saw what happened.

“The biker had overtaken us all and ended up on the wrong side of the road when he smashed head-on into Kem’s car at about 60mph on a 30mph road.

“The driver of the motorbike flew about 20ft into the air before landing on the road.”
