Police noted that the man driving the car had stopped at the scene and assisted in enquiries, and was not arrested. 

A spokesperson for Kem, who won Love Island back in 2017 and opened a restaurant in Romford last year, confirmed he was involved in the collision, and said he is being purely treated as a witness to the incident. 

They added: “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."
