I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! love rat Marc Bannerman was arrested following a confrontation with paparazzi after they followed him and Cerys Matthews to a pub. The former EastEnders star became embroiled in a row with photographers after a meal with jungle babe Cerys on Friday afternoon. The actor travelled to Cerys' home in west Wales last week after forming a close bond with her in the Australian jungle. Marc and another man were released on police bail pending further inquiries into the incident outside the Ship Inn in Trefin, Pembrokeshire, west Wales. Meriel Murphy, owner of the Ship Inn, revealed: "One minute everything was fine and they were having a meal but when they tried to leave they couldn't get out. "There were around 15 photographers around the car blocking them in the car park and they refused to let them out. "Cerys was very distressed and I had to fetch a car to take her home. I think Marc Bannerman kept his cool very well. "He got out and remained polite and said, 'For God's sake, let us go' but they were just laughing and making fun." But it seems that the altercation hasn't affected Marc too much. After being dumped by his girlfriend Sarah Matravers over his 'relationship' with Cerys he's rumoured to be looking for a home in Wales so that he can be close to the Welsh singer. He has been spotted looking at properties around Cerys' home in west Wales, reports The Sun. A source is quoted as saying: "From what I hear he's already earmarked a couple of places. It seems like he can't wait to move out here and be with Cerys all the time."
