The actor is facing legal action after allegedly running over a phographer
The actor's car allegedly struck a photographer as he tried to drive away, leaving the snapper with minor injuries.
And now the Strictly star may be facing legal action as the photographer prepares a compensation claim.
Speaking on behalf of the snapper, laywer Nick Harrison said: ‘At this point in time we are making enquiries into the incident.
‘Mr Farrell maintains that he was going about the normal course of his business as a freelance photographer when he was struck by a vehicle being driven by Mr Whittle.
‘If the evidence suggests that Mr Whittle drove negligently into Mr Farrell, then Mr Farrell may well have a case for claiming compensation for his injuries and any loss of earnings.'
So could this mark the beginning of yet more trouble for the star?
And just last week he narrowly avoided being voted off after a dance off with Natalie Cassidy.
