CHRIS Hughes is being investigated by police after he was involved in a heated bust-up with a photographer following Tuesday night’s National Television Awards.

The former Love Island star, 27, had been supporting girlfriend Jesy Nelson, 28, who bagged the award for Best Factual Programme, at the star-studded ceremony.

However, the celebrations soon took a turn for the worst after he was spotted in an altercation with a photographer outside of the O2 arena in London in the early hours of Wednesday.

The Mirror reports that Chris started rowing with the snapper over claims he’d called him a “c***”.

The hunky star was pictured leaving the five-star InterContinental in a smart suit and shirt before things kicked off.

After being approached by the photographer, Chris dropped his bags on the pavement and began scuffling with the man outside the East-London venue.

In the shock photos, an angry-looking Chris grabs on to the photographers coat and grapples with him.

While in another, the reality star points his finger during the tense altercation.

Things were no doubt heated between the two as Chris’ manager stepped in to break up the fight.

Jesy, 28, was seen waiting in a cab with a male friends as the drama unfolded.

Soon after the scuffle, Chris was escorted to the car.
