Love Island star Francesca Allen ‘seen in explosive altercation outside pub before police are called’

Francesca Allen has apparently been seen squaring up to another woman during an altercation in Essex on Saturday, before police attended the scene.

The 24 year old, who found fame on the 2019 series of the hit dating show Love Island, and the woman allegedly broke social distancing rules as the pair got close to each other's faces and shouted at one another.

Standing outside the King Oak pub in High Beech, Epping Forest, Francesca is thought to have got into an argument over a man.

The brunette, who donned a black vest top with matching shorts, was filmed in a clip obtained by Mail Online, waving her hands in the air before the woman held her own hands out behind her as she shrieked in Francesca's face in retaliation.

In the short clip, the reality star could be heard shouting: "You're not going to do anything, you're not going to. Why come over here then!"

The woman was held back by friends in a bid to control the situation. However, their efforts were in vain as she lunged forward to repeatedly yell in Francesca's face, ignoring bystanders and potential mediators.

Standing her ground, Francesca then appeared to shout back at her and clenched her fist up before letting her hand drop.

The two then broke away from the main group while their friends watched in shock. Before long, a police officer was called onto the scene to pull the woman, who was dressed in all beige, away.

A witness to the explosive row told Mail Online: "They appeared to be fighting over some guy. He was on the side and basically telling them to calm down. It didn't seem right, like they were fighting over him. Francesca was trying to stay calm".

A police spokesman told the same publication: "We were called at around 5.10pm on Saturday 30 May, with reports of a disturbance outside the King Oak pub in High Beech.

"We received information that a large group of people had gathered on green space outside the pub and reports of people fighting.

"We attended the scene and gave words of advice to people about congregating. They were understanding and left the vicinity without issue or the need for enforcement action."

It is thought that no injuries were reported during the incident.

Francesca's representative commented on the event, too, as they told OK! Online: "Francesca was approached by two unknown females on Saturday afternoon who began verbally then physically abusing her.

"In self-defence, Francesca defended herself. The attack was witnessed by the police and Francesca was asked if she wanted to pursue the matter, to which she declined."

And a friend of the star, who's pal Anna Vakili recently denied attacking 'teenagers' in Hyde Park, explained to Mail Online: "She didn't know the girls and had no idea why they were trying to attack her, in the circumstances she felt she needed to defend herself."
