Jack Fincham has been left ‘devastated’ after a car ‘ploughed’ into his £35K Mercedes while out for lunch in Wilmington, Kent, on Saturday.

The incident comes just two months after the Love Island star, 29, crashed into a friend’s parked vehicle in August when he was thrown out and banned from his local pub.

Taking to his Instagram Story on Sunday evening, Jack admitted he was ‘devastated’ over the crash and even joked he has ‘no luck’ with vehicles.

The aspiring professional boxer insisted that no one was hurt while the collision is being dealt with by the police and insurance companies.

In a candid video, Jack explained: ‘The day I’ve had… pulling into a car park to have something to eat, a Caesar salad in case anyone is interested… a car ploughed straight into my car as I indicated to go in there.

‘I do not have any luck with cars, I’m devastated, it’s a brand new car as well, I’m devastated!’

Reflecting on how bad the crash could have been, Jack added: ‘Thankfully no one was injured, it’s just a bit of metal at the end of the day, isn’t it?

‘It’s all being dealt with by the police and insurance companies. I’m just upset about the car, it’s such a shame, people need to slow down on that road. People do turn right, I’m devastated, absolutely devastated.’

According to reports, Jack was with ex-girlfriend Connie O’Hara during the incident with a person in the other car treated on the scene and taken to hospital with ‘non-life-threatening’ injuries.

The Love Island star’s £35K Mercedes is said to have damage to its bumper and was towed away after the crash.

A ‘witness’ told The Sun: ‘It looked serious. There was a fair bit of damage. Everybody involved looked shocked and shaken.

‘Jack looked stunned at what happened. It’s a nice car and no doubt it’s caused an awful lot of damage.

‘It’s going to cost quite a lot of money to repair that.’

MailOnline has contacted Jack’s representative and Kent Police for comment.

‘Thanks again to @nvgltd for my C200 unreal service from David and the team as always! I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone honestly!’ (sic)

Prices for a Mercedes C200 start at £29,925, although some models can even be priced up to £41, 764, yet it’s likely Jack is renting as the company he tagged offers six and 12 month vehicle leasing. 

In August, Jack caused damage to a friend’s vehicle after crashing into their parked car when he was thrown out and banned from his local pub.

The Love Island winner was asked to leave the Bull’s Head in Chislehurst before hitting the Mercedes GLA that was stationary on the road outside.

In photos exclusively obtained by MailOnline, the vehicle could be seen with significant damage to the exhaust, as well as dents to the back of the car.

A source told MailOnline: ‘Jack was at the Bull’s Head on Saturday but was told to leave by staff.

‘Despite their warning, Jack returned to the pub on Sunday, only to be reminded that he was banned.

‘After leaving on Sunday he crashed into the back of a friend’s car that was parked outside the pub, and he drove off.

‘Staff at the pub called the police, who came out to the scene to take statements.’

An eyewitness added: ‘We saw Jack drive straight into the back of the car but instead of getting out to check everything was okay, he drove off.

‘The worry was that he wasn’t safe to be behind the wheel so a decision was made to call the police.’

A spokesman for Metropolitan Police confirmed: ‘Police were called at 18:30hrs on Sunday, 2 August to Royal Parade in Chislehurst following reports of a car collision with a parked vehicle.

‘Officers attended. The driver had left the scene prior to their arrival. There have been no arrests.’

A spokesman for Jack said: ‘We can confirm Jack was in a small car collision at his local pub after he wasn’t allowed entry as he had not reserved a table in accordance with Covid regulations.

‘The car that Jack had an incident with had no one in it while it was parked, however Jack is friends with the owner.

‘The Met Police have dropped the incident as Jack and the car owner are resolving the small damage caused to the car between themselves directly.’

It was revealed earlier this week by MailOnline that Jack had split from girlfriend Connie after a two-month romance.

The Love Island winner deleted the loved-up picture of him and Connie that sparked engagement rumours in August, as he plans to focus on his fitness and boxing career as a single man.

A source told MailOnline the reality star is also keen to concentrate on being a dad to his 10-month-old daughter Blossom, who he shares with former fling Casey Ranger.

 ‘Jack is a single man again, it didn’t work out with Connie but they’re still friends and didn’t end on bad terms,’ an insider explained.

‘His fitness schedule is round-the-clock and he’s very dedicated to reaching his goals in boxing, being in a relationship just doesn’t fit at the moment.

‘He’s also a father so any girlfriend he welcomes into his life needs to be understanding of that, which isn’t always easy.’ 

Jack became a dad to daughter Blossom just 18 months after finding fame on Love Island with ex-girlfriend Dani Dyer, 24.

The former couple, who refused to film together for new ITV2 series Love Island: What Happened Next, won the show’s £50,000 prize in 2018.

Dani is expecting her first baby with boyfriend Sammy Kimmence, who she briefly split from in March – with the couple reconciling months later.
