In 2017, Arthur was sentenced to 20-years in prison and five years on licence after carrying out an acid attack in London.
Arthur, who was 25 at the time, was convicted of five counts of grievous bodily harm with intent and nine counts of actual bodily harm.
He’s the father of Ferne’s daughter Sunday, three, who regularly features on the star’s ITVBe series First Time Mum.
In 2018, Tommy pleaded guilty to two counts of possessing a weapon and a third charge of possessing cannabis.
Tommy was found to have a CS spray, a Taser and drugs in his bedroom.
The materials were discovered during a search of the family’s home as police searched for Arthur.
Ella’s romance with Pete, who’s 12 years her senior, caused a stir among the TOWIE cast.
Their kiss came weeks after Chloe Sims, 38, and Pete finally ended their on-off relationship, with the pair no longer in contact.
Chloe’s sister Frankie found it difficult to be friends with Ella after discovering she had been intimate with Pete, who previously claimed he wasn’t attracted to the 20-year-old.
In a recent interview, Pete confessed to being ‘better off single.’
He said: ‘I have been a lost cause in the past. But I have used this time to work on the reasons why I am a lost cause.
‘I think I am better off single at the moment. But I want to make sure when I do start dating again I am ready.’
