I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! star Harry Garside has been arrested just minutes after arriving back in Australia following his time on the show.
The Olympic boxing medallist appeared on the most recent season of the Australian version of the reality series, which wrapped up last week.
The competition was won by former netball player Liz Ellis, with Garside being named runner-up, while Below Deck star Aesha Scott came in third place.
But upon returning home, Garside, 25, was arrested at Sydney International Airport after police launched an investigation into reports of an incident involving a 32-year-old woman.
In a statement, NSW Police told Metro.co.uk that last month, officers commenced the investigation following the alleged incident on March 1.
‘Following inquiries, a 25-year-old man was arrested at Sydney International Airport about 2.40pm on Tuesday,’ it said.
‘He was taken to Mascot Police Station and charged with common assault (domestic violence).’

He has been granted conditional bail and is due to appear in court later this month.
The boxer was arrested following his flight from Johannesburg.

Garside is said to have been travelling with his father, who was allowed to continue though customs to collect his bags, but his son was ‘escorted by two NSW Police detectives and two Australian Federal Police officers to a waiting car’ as reported by the Daily Mail.
On Monday Garside shared a photo on a flight with his father, writing that he had to ‘upgrade my best mate to business with me’.
‘Money comes and goes, memories with loved ones last forever.’
Addressing his time on the show, he wrote it was an experience he would ‘truly never forget’ and had made ‘friendships that will last a lifetime’.
‘Massive thank you to everyone who supported me, can’t believe I made it that far into the show,’ he added.
‘Can’t wait to touch down in the best country on earth again. Bring on the journey to Paris 2024.’
The champion men’s lightweight boxer won bronze for Australia at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and has won seven Australian national boxing championships.
He intends to compete for Australia at the Paris 2024 Olympics.
Metro.co.uk has contacted representatives for Harry Garside and Network Ten for comment.
I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! airs on Channel Ten in Australia.
