He appeared at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court on April 19 and was remanded in custody for a further hearing at Snaresbrook County Court on May 17 for a plea and trial preparation hearing.

Mike was arrested with another man, Gary Michael Bear, 23, who was also charged with supply of cocaine and conspiracy to possess criminal property.

A 26-year-old woman, who was arrested on suspicion of intent to supply a class A drug (cocaine), has been released under investigation.

‘Two men have been charged in connection with the supply of Class A drugs as part of an investigation by the Met’s Specialist Crime Command’, a spokesperson for the Metropolitan police told MailOnline.

The Essex TV star could face up to 14 years in prison if found guilty of the offences.

The personal trainer found fame on ITVBe’s The Only Way is Essex in 2015 but was axed for good during 2018. 

He was close friends with James Lock, 34, and Tommy Mallet, 28, while on the show – and even helped the footwear entrepreneur to get in shape last year. 

During filming in 2015, Mike looked happy alongside former co-stars Danielle Armstrong, 32, Georgia Kousoulou, 29, and Kate Ferdinand, 29, for the show’s Marbella series. 

Mike, from Brentwood, Essex, appears to have spent much of lockdown overseas, posting photos on his Instagram from Dubai throughout December and January.

In one picture, taken poolside at Dubai restaurant White Beach in January, Mike claimed: ‘Working on a few things.’ 

He posed with girlfriend Jess Milford, 26, calling her ‘my girl’ while dining at another celebrity hot spot.  

A few days before his arrest, Mike shared an image to his 263K Instagram followers that showed him surrounded by weights, while commenting on his excitement about gyms reopening. 

He was previously in a relationship with Zoe Hamilton, who was tipped to join TOWIE in 2017, but she didn’t make it onto the show. 

Five years ago, Mike had a hair transplant after being mocked for his receding hairline. 

His former co-star Lewis Bloor, 31, once joked: ‘Mate you’re 20 years old, the only thing past it is your hair line. You talk about my weight, I can lose weight but that hair line you need a transplant for.’
