Gogglebox star George Gilbey has been charged with assaulting his girlfriend Gemma Conway after an argument broke out at their home on Friday.

According to the Sun, police were called to the house in Twickenham after they received complaints of an argument between the pair and George was arrested the following day.

As well as being charged with one offence of assault by beating, he was also charged with criminal damage to property after he allegedly smashed up his own home during the same altercation.

Gilbey is expected to appear in court later this month.

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police told the Sun: "A man has been charged following an assault on Friday, 16 March. George Gilbey, 34, of Clacton, was charged with assault by beating and criminal damage on Saturday, 17 March.”

"He has been bailed to appear at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court on Wednesday, 28 March."

Gilbey rose to fame in as a regular on Gogglebox alongside his mum Linda and step-dad Pete and finished fourth in Celebrity Big Brother in 2014.

George and Gemma have been together since 2015 and have one year old daughter together.

He has reportedly moved back in with his parents following his arrest.
