The personal trainer has been at the centre of controversy after an alleged altercation between him and Ferne McCann at the National Television Awards.

It had been reported that police were called to London's O2 Arena on Tuesday after Ferne "hurled a drink" over Adam following an argument about comments his girlfriend Zara had allegedly made about the former TOWIE star.

Ferne said in a statement: "To be clear I have never thrown glass at anyone.

"I am not proud of reacting the way I did to the serious abuse and intimidation I was subjected to and I should not have thrown a drink.

"However I am not sure how someone who said the things he did about my daughter and me is seeking to portray himself as a victim."
