Tommy, a young father, was thrown 20 feet into the air by the force of the impact before landing on the runway.

He died on the spot from multiple injuries and blows with a blunt object.

An inquest into his death was launched this morning at East London Coroner’s Court, which was closed.

Senior coroner Graham Irwin said the court was not given details about the driver of the other vehicle.

According to him, the suspect was identified during the investigation of the incident by the traffic police.

“It appears that the police have identified the suspect in connection with this investigation,” he said.

“It seems to me that this person should be listed as an interested person in this investigation.”

Kem escaped unscathed but was “deeply shocked” after the accident, which happened just meters from his Massive restaurant in Harold Wood.

His agent had previously stated that he was being treated as a witness and was not arrested.

Tommy reportedly collided with Kem’s car after trying to overtake cars going uphill as the star was driving downhill.

Eyewitnesses say that Kem is “definitely not to blame” for the tragedy.

One witness told Kristen Bell Tattoos: “I sympathize with him. He saw someone die before his eyes.

“We all recognized him. He was talking to someone on the phone, saying that there had been an accident and that he was worried.

“He was in total shock.”

And heartbreaking tributes were paid to Tommy’s father.

One friend, Phil M. G. Smith, posted a Facebook tribute along with photos of flowers at the crash site and a video of the balloon hovering in the air.

In the caption, he wrote: “This is for you my brother from another, we all miss you Tom, this doesn’t even feel real.

“One love, my bro, and rest in peace.”

The mother of Tommy’s child shared another heartbreaking post in which she remembered her daughter’s father.

Amba Davis posted photos of the small family on Facebook. She wrote: “The last four years have not been the easiest, but you gave me the best gift anyone could give me.

“She loves you so much, Tommy, and I’ll tell her about you every single day, and I’ll make sure you’re proud of her!”


Kem, who won Love Island in 2017 with Amber Davis, did not attend the opening of the inquest this morning.

The reality star, who is worth an estimated £4.3m and became Primark’s first menswear ambassador, lives close to the stage in a £1.5m mansion in Essex.

Friends say he is “devastated” by Tommy’s death.

Kem’s spokesman said: “Kem assisted the police and is treated solely as a witness to the incident.

“Who will have no further comment on this matter other than to express their deepest condolences, prayers and sympathy to the motorcyclist’s family and friends.”

A full investigation will take place next year.
