Police charged Adam Cottrell with two counts of 'assault by beating' after being called to the couple's home
The fiancé of Eastender’s actress Natalie Cassidy, Adam Cottrell, has been arrested, after allegedly attacking her during at row at their Hertfordshire home.
It’s thought Natalie called police after an argument with her future husband ‘spiraled massively out of control,’ on Sunday night.
Reports suggest Cottrell 'turned physical' during the dramatic confrontation, and 'went berserk,’ smashing up furniture at the house he shared with the actress.
It’s thought he was quizzed by police when they arrived at the couple’s home, before being arrested.
'She and Adam had a huge argument and it spiraled massively out of control, ending with Adam losing his temper like never before,’ a friend of the pair told the Mirror. ‘It turned physical.’
Last night a police spokesman confirmed Cottrell has been charged with two counts of assault by beating, and two accounts of criminal damage.
'We were called on Sunday around 5.30pm,’ a Hertfordshire police officer said.
'Adam Cottrell has been charged with two counts of assault by beating and two counts of criminal damage.
He will appear at East Herts Magistrates Court on May 31st.'
Friends of the actress, have revealed Natalie is ‘devastated’ by Adams shocking behaviour, and has vowed to put the welfare of her daughter first.
'Natalie is absolutely devastated by events,’ one insider said.
'Her main concern is the welfare of her daughter and, for now, she just wants to keep a low profile and get on with her life until this has all been resolved.
'She doesn’t know what the future holds for herself and Adam.'
Natalie and Adam became engaged in May last year – just four months after meeting – and have one daughter, nine month-old Eliza.
