Love Island winner Kem Cetinay has been involved in a fatal road accident with a motorcyclist, MailOnline can reveal.

The reality TV star, 26, is said to be ‘shaken up’ after his Mercedes G-Wagon collided with a motorbike on Thursday in Romford, Essex.

Paramedics fought to save the motorcyclist, but he tragically died in the accident.

Kem, who won Love Island in 2017, escaped unharmed but is in shock from the ordeal and has been left ‘traumatised’, say pals.

A source told MailOnline: ‘Kem is devastated about what’s happened. He’s a sensible driver; no one could have foreseen this tragic accident happening.

‘There has been no wrongdoing on Kem’s side, he’s not at fault, and is being treated by police as a witness.

‘He’s still dealing with the shock alongside close friends and his family.’

A statement from the Metropolitan Police confirmed: ‘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.’

A statement released by Kem’s representative said: ‘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.’
