But if anyone from Strictly Come Dancing was going to get arrested for lamping a photographer, we thought it might have been Joe Calzaghe, but not squeaky clean Ricky Whittle!

The favourite to win the dance show was arrested by Merseyside Police last night on suspicion of assault and is still in police custody.

Apparently the arrest came after a collision between a car and a male pedestrian, who suffered minor injuries.

It is thought Ricky was the driver of the car and the pedestrian was a paparazzi photographer.

So he ran him over and then slapped him about a bit – sounds like an episode of Hollyoaks to us…
