Rapper Aggro Santos arrested over rape claims in Chichester

I’M A Celebrity contestant Aggro Santos has been arrested on suspicion of rape after playing a gig in Chichester.

The 22-year-old Brazilian-born rapper was quizzed by police following the alleged incident at the Ship Hotel in North Street in the early hours of Saturday.

Santos – whose first name is Yuri – strongly denies the allegations, his solicitor said.

He and a 20-year-old man also arrested in connection with the alleged rape were later released on bail until June 20 pending further inquiries.

A Sussex Police spokesman said: “Two men, aged 20 and 22, both from London, were arrested on suspicion of rape following an incident at the Ship Hotel in Chichester in the early hours of Saturday morning.

“They were later bailed until June 20.”

Santos’ solicitor, Phil Smith, of Tuckers Solicitors, said: “At this stage, this is purely an allegation which has been, and is, vehemently denied by my client.”

Santos, who lives in London, made it to the last six in last year’s series of ITV reality show I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here.
