An eye-witness said: ‘It was scary. Police were called but no one was arrested or hurt.’

While Joe’s spokesman told the publication: ‘They are all a little shaken up.’ MailOnline have contacted Joe Swash’s rep for comment.

The London native pledged his £30,000 I’m A Celebrity winnings in 2008 to the Ben Kinsella Trust, which was set up by former EastEnders star Brooke and her family, in his memory.

‘I’ve set aside money for my children to make sure they’ve got a roof over their head, and I still have to work really hard to carry on making that happen for however long I’ve got left on my mortgage.

‘I wouldn’t ever want to be in a position where that could be taken away from them, so I have to be sensible’, she said in an interview with Fabulous.

She added that she wasn’t rushing into having more babies with her beau of two years, Joe, without a lot of thought.

Joe is already a parent to son Harry, 10, with ex-fiancée Emma Sophocleous, while Stacey raises sons Zachary, nine, and Leighton, five, from two former relationships.

The couple are often inundated with questions about marriage and when Joe is set to propose to the former X Factor star, with Stacey claiming during an appearance on Loose Women recently that she would be happy if he popped the question via a text message.

Setting the record straight, she admitted her comment had been in jest, and said: ‘I am in love with Joe, however, he wants to propose is absolutely fine, but I am in no hurry.

‘I want it to be perfect, I want it to be special, I want the kids to be really happy and a big part of it and I think that’s what we’re both waiting for.’

She and Joe first confirmed their relationship in January 2016 and things have only gone from strength to strength for the pair, with Stacey openly revealing her hopes for the duo to tie the knot and have children together.
