Mr Collins is believed to be the boyfriend of TV personality Ferne McCann. She urged him to go to a police station immediately. A witness said the attack left two men "unable to see". Officers believe a dispute between two groups of people resulted in a noxious substance being sprayed directly at two people and hitting others. Police do not believe the attack was gang related. No arrests have been made.
Ferne McCann appeared in The Only Way Is Essex, I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here and This Morning. Three other stars of The Only Way Is Essex - Jamie Reed, Jade Lewis and Chloe Meadows - were also reported to be among the hundreds evacuated from the LoveJuice event.
