Made In Chelsea's Ollie Locke 'attacked' outside Cheska's 26th birthday party on eve of season three finale
14:51 GMT, 4 June 2012
He's the bubbly heart of the show, rarely seen badmouthing any of his co-stars and beloved by all.
So it is incomprehensible why anyone should choose to attack Made In Chelsea's Ollie Locke.
Yet the 24-year-old found himself pounced on by a thuggish passerby outside the Kensington Roof Gardens on Saturday.
Revolting behaviour: Made In Chelsea's Ollie Locke appeared to be attacked outside Kensington Roof Gardens on Saturday night
The man appeared to shove Ollie, grabbing his face and allegedly telling him how much he hated the show.
His unwarranted aggression naturally shocked the reality star, who was arriving for his best friend Cheska Hull's 26th birthday party.
Ollie did his best to push the assailant away without being aggressive, though the man had his arm locked around the his neck.

Grabbed his face: The attacker reportedly told Ollie how much he hated the show
Besides his conspicuous sweat patches, the attacker was smartly dressed- ironic, given his apparent problem with the high society Made In Chelsea crowd.
Ollie managed to free himself eventually, walking away looking shaken but collected.

Abusive: The thuggish assailant was completely unreasonable
Channel 4 have declined to make an official comment on what happened.
The incident certainly makes for a dramatic and unpleasant prelude to tonight's Made In Chelsea season finale.
Last week Ollie was seen tiptoeing between the warring camps of his co-stars on one of the most awkward televised holidays ever.

Ollie's ex Gabriella- who has had more than one spat with Cheska in the past- also agreed to come along after a chance meeting with Binky.
Long-haired Mr Locke found himself at the centre of a war zone, with tensions rising to fever pitch after only three days.
