Marco Pierre White Jr has been charged with possession of Class A drugs.

The 24-year-old is alleged to have had them on him while at the Earls Court branch of Costa Coffee.

He is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates Court on Monday, following the incident which took place in May this year.

Scotland Yard confirmed the news to Metro.co.uk in a statement that read: ‘Marco Pierre White Jr, 23 (24.05.95), of Corsham, Wiltshire, was charged on Monday, 15 July with possession of class A drugs contrary to Section 5(1) of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.

‘He is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Monday, 29 July. It follows an incident at a coffee shop in Earls Court Road in May 2019.’

This comes just after the television personality announced he was soon to become a father for the first time.

Taking to Instagram earlier this week, the reality star proudly shared a pregnancy scan, which was taken on the 12 June.

Next to the snap, which had the mother’s name scribbled out, Marco wrote: ‘Going to be a daddy to a little girl.’

He followed this up by adding: ‘My father’s first grandchild.’

Marco, whose dad is chef Marco Pierre White, was last linked to a woman named Ellen, who he proposed to last May.

He said on Instagram: ‘Got back with one of my exes, not Francesca, and I’m about to propose to her with a 1.5 carat Asprey diamond from 1920. Hope it goes well, wish me luck!’

After live-streaming the proposal, Ellen said yes, and Marco explained: ‘So I just got engaged to someone I was with for two and a half years.

‘I’m really happy she said “Yes”, we’ve always been really close to each other, I know she’s the one I want to spend the rest of my life with.’

Prior to this, he was seeing Francesca Suter, after two failed engagements in two years.

Before proposing to Ellen, he popped the question to Jessica Hydeleman in March 2016 via a Whatsapp message, but they split up soon afterwards.

Then, just weeks after, he became engaged to Kim Melville-Smith, who was his fiancee at the time he entered Big Brother.

Metro.co.uk have reached out to Marco’s reps for further comment.
