Ferne McCann’s acid attacker ex Arthur Collins is reportedly set to marry his former Page 3 girl fiancée in prison at the end of the year.
Arthur, 29, is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence after being found guilty of carrying out a brutal acid attack in 2017.
Last month, MailOnline revealed that Arthur had found love with an Essex mother and that the pair were engaged to marry after dating for six months.

And now, it has been claimed that Arthur and his partner Annie Jane, 33, want to tie the knot in Category ‘A’ HMP Woodhill in Milton Keynes this year.
A friend told The Sun: ‘Their wedding is at the end of the year.’
Annie is believed to already refer to Arthur as her ‘husband’ after he was said to have proposed while she visited him in prison.
A spokesperson for the Ministry of Justice told MailOnline: ‘We have not received an application for marriage.’
MailOnline has also contacted Ferne’s representatives for comment.

Arthur’s engagement in July came a week after his ex Ferne, 31, announced she’s to wed her boyfriend of six months Lorri Haines.
Annie, who presented an adult show on Babestation for 11 years, confirmed her and Arthur’s engagement on Instagram, telling friends and family ‘I said yes’ while sharing a tattoo of Arthur’s name she has inked on her stomach.
A source close to Annie told MailOnline last month: ‘Arthur and Annie met prior to his prison sentencing through mutual friends.
‘They plan on getting married while he’s still behind bars later this year after dating for the past six months.
‘Annie is aware of Arthur’s past but is prepared to commit herself to him, even getting a tattoo of his name to prove her love.

‘They have a lot in common; Annie also has a young daughter, and believes the pair connect on a spiritual level.
‘They fell in love after writing to each other and talking through prison visits and Annie believes Arthur is truly sorry for everything that happened.
‘Annie has done a lot for Arthur’s rehabilitation, she feels they’re soul mates, and together they are looking forward to the future and one day having a family life of their own.’
Arthur, who shares daughter Sunday, four, with former TOWIE star Ferne, was sentenced to 20 years behind bars after he was found guilty of hurling a corrosive substance over a crowd on the dance floor at nightclub Mangle E8 in what Jude Noel Lucas said was a ‘despicable act’.
Sixteen people suffered chemical burn injuries and three people were temporarily blinded.

In court, Judge Noel described it as a ‘deliberate and calculated attack’ during Arthur’s sentencing in December 2017.
Arthur is currently locked up at Category ‘A’ HMP Woodhill in Milton Keynes, Bucks.
Mum-of-one Annie, who has her own food business, runs an OnlyFans page and is a former Page 3 model.
Her bio on OnlyFans reads: ‘I’m Annie, you may recognise me from Babestation channels, which I presented for 11 years.
‘I’ve been in men’s mags and newspapers Page 3 and was also lucky enough to have my own calendar.
‘I enjoy going to the gym and reading books. I’m a vegetarion and have a huge passion for cooking.

‘I’m always taking pictures and would love to shame them with you all on brand new OnlyFans account.’
In January, it was reported that Arthur was in a relationship with former Take Me Out contestant Gemma Elliott.
Sources told The Sun the pair were ‘officially a couple’ after Gemma shared photos of herself posing in red pyjamas embossed with the name ‘Arthur’ that were tagged in his Instagram profile.
Elsewhere, Ferne’s boyfriend Lorri popped the question last month in France.
The ITVBe star shared an image of the couple kissing while showing off her engagement ring alongside the caption, ‘So happily ever afters do exist.
‘I cannot wait to do forever with you baby.’
Writing on Instagram, Ferne, whose camera crew for her TV show First Time Mum captured the romantic moment, explained: ‘It feels so surreal calling Lorri my fiancé.
‘I cannot wait to relive this moment where I laughed and cried so hard all at the same time. Thank you, Lorri, for making me so blissfully happy.’
In February, Ferne’s fiancé Lorri was videoed appearing to sniff a white powder.
He danced to music topless while holding two small, clear pouches.
Lorri claimed he wasn’t taking drugs and was ‘joking about.’
The clip came a month after Ferne went public with Lorri, who’s a Dubai-based real estate agent.
