Insiders told the publication Kem is absolutely ‘devastated’ by the incident and is a sensible driver.
They added there was no wrongdoing on Kem’s side and he is being treated by police as a witness.
Mirror Online has contacted Kem’s representatives for comment.
Kem rose to fame in 2017, falling head over heels for West End performer Amber Davies and they stormed to victory on the ITV2 series.

However, just five months after winning the show, the couple split up due to “difficult schedules”.
Whilst most of Kem’s work is on-screen, he keeps his romantic life notoriously private – having only had one romance in the public eye after separating from his ex-Love Island winner.
