April Banbury, who tied the knot with George Roberts on E4 show Married At First Sight, has broken her silence after the dad-of-four was arrested on suspicion of controlling and coercive behaviour.

Roberts, 40, was arrested on Thursday, just over a week after the Sun newspaper reported how three of his ex-girlfriends had raised concerns with police about his behaviour in relationships, and also complained to Channel 4.

Other women are said to have since come forward to also raise concerns, a source told the publisher.

The dad-of-four from Worcestershire is now facing a police investigation over the allegations.

Speaking to The Mirror, a spokesperson for Met Police said: “A 40-year-old man was arrested by Met officers in Worcestershire on Thursday, 29 September on suspicion of controlling and coercive behaviour.

“He was taken to a Worcestershire police station and subsequently bailed to return pending further enquiries.

“This follows an allegation of controlling and coercive behaviour and harassment reported to the Met on Monday, 26 September.”

Financial adviser George has denied any wrongdoing and has been bailed by Scotland Yard.

Following George’s arrest, April has now broken her silence for the first time.

The brunette bombshell appeared to ignore George’s arrest as she shared photos of herself heading out to dinner with her dad and a close friend.

April shared an image of herself holding up a champagne glass as she toasted to her father and friend over dinner.

The former model has reportedly returned to her London flat after dumping husband George following the ’emotional abuse’ allegations made against him.

A spokesperson for Roberts said last week: “George categorically denies these allegations.

“As a father of daughters he finds these accusations deeply upsetting and does not condone abuse nor behaves in that way.

“These allegations were never brought to his attention, investigated or taken further by the police for good reason as they are simply not true.”
