Little Mix singer Jesy Nelson's father has been arrested in connection with a hit and run crash, according to reports.
John Nelson (51) from Essex, was reportedly involved in a fatal collision with a motorcycle on Friday.
Motorcyclist Craig Voyce (23) died at hospital three hours after the accident.
Mr Nelson, who denies being behind the wheel at the time, was arrested near the scene and claims two other men were present in the vehicle at the time of the crash.
"I was not the driver of this vehicle. The police know I was not the driver," he told The Sun.
He is estranged from 25-year-old Jesy, who shot to fame on The X Factor in 2011.
He has been released on bail and the investigation continues.
