Ferne McCann’s ex-boyfriend gets 8 months added to sentence

OHMYGOSSIP — Ferne McCann’s ex-boyfriend Arthur Collins has had eight months added onto his jail sentence after he was caught trying to speak to her on his smuggled phone.
The 25 year old was sentenced to two decades behind bars with an extra five years on licence at Wood Green Crown Court last month after he was found guilty of throwing acid on a group of revellers in a packed nightclub in London in April last year.
But he’ll now have to spend even longer locked up after he admitted at the end of last month to one charge of possessing a prohibited item while in prison.
Sentencing, Judge Nicholas Heathcote Williams said: “The presence of a mobile phone or component part such as a Sim card has many implications, not only for the prison establishment, but also the wider environment. It provides a prisoner or prisoners with an opportunity to communicate they would otherwise not have. This therefore allows them to act in a way prison is supposed to prevent them from doing.”
The court heard that Arthur – who appeared via video link from prison – hid a phone, two sim cards and two memory sticks in the crutch while awaiting trial.
He claimed that he’d used the device to make calls to Ferne – who was pregnant with his child and gave birth to their little girl Sunday in November – last year.
Arthur was found guilty of five counts of GBH with intent and nine counts of ABH after 22 people were injured when he lobbed the liquid in Mangle E8 last year.
One victim suffered third-degree chemical burns to the left side of the face and required a skin graft, while others had eye injuries.
Arthur admitted to throwing the liquid but claimed during the court case in November that he believed it was a date rape drug that he’d confiscated from someone.
He had six previous convictions – including using threatening words, possession of cocaine, drink-driving and assault – and was given a six-month sentence suspended for 12 months at Woolwich Crown Court for punching a man in a nightclub in 2015.
