Some of the TOWIE cast were among those caught up in a horrific acid attack at a London club over the weekend that left more than 20 people injured.

Jamie Reed and girlfriend Jade Lewis were at the Wringer & Mangle, Sidworth Street club, along with co-star Chloe Meadows, when the incident happened early on Monday morning (17 April).

Reveller Scott Kempster told The Sun: “It was crazy scary — everyone was screaming.

“I was at the bar with friends and a guy was pushing some people around. A bouncer asked him to leave, but he grabbed his arm and pulled a bottle out of his pocket.

“He sprayed the bouncer and my friend and some girls got hit. At first everyone thought it was water, then people started running as they realised it was acid.

“The guy who threw it then started throwing other stuff before he ran off,” he added. “One girl looked in a bad way. Staff were putting wet towels on her face and pouring water over her.”

The TOWIE cast remained unscathed. Unfortunately, Celebrity Big Brother star Jamie O’Hara’s cousin did not.

He tweeted:

In a statement about the attack, the Met Police said: “Officers believe a dispute between two groups of people developed inside the venue, resulting in a noxious substance being sprayed by a male suspect directly at Victims 1 and 2.

“Other people inside the venue suffered the effects of the substance. The substance is yet to be identified, but it is believed to have been acidic.”

London Ambulance Service assistant director of operations, Stuart Crichton, said: “We were called at 1:09am on Monday 17 April, to reports of an incident on Warburton Road, E8.

“We sent multiple resources to the scene including paramedics in cars, ambulance crews, a number of officers, an advanced paramedic and our hazardous area response team. We have taken 10 patients to hospital.”
