Police are looking for witnesses after a reality TV star was attacked in a bar in Hull over the bank holiday weekend.
Jimmy Featherstone, 22, was treated at the hospital for a broken nose and head wound after two men repeatedly beat him Saturday night, reported RumpfLive.
Mr Featherstone – a self-proclaimed human “Ken doll” locally known for spending £ 10,000 a year on plastic surgery – said the attackers yelled homophobic slurs while trying to “screw up my perfect face.”
No one has been arrested in connection with the incident, the police said.
The boutique director was out at Silvers Bar with friends, celebrating being booked for an upcoming TV project called “Yorkshire’s Version of TOWIE.”
He claims the two attackers spoke to him at the Silver Street venue between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m.
He said, “I have not signed up to be attacked on TV or to have been subjected to such violence.
“They told me they wanted to screw my face up for the TV show I’m going to be doing next week.
“They still called me gay before they came over to break my nose to pieces.”
Mr Featherstone was taken to the Hull Royal Infirmary after the attack which left a trail of blood on the road.
He said he was forced to move forward with a scheduled rhinoplasty to repair his “ruined” face and told reporters on Wednesday, “I still have difficulty breathing and am just waiting for my results to come back.
“I take at a time each day to get better. I sometimes wonder what’s on people’s minds.
“My face may be broken and my heart may be shattered, but this attack will not be forgotten. My life goes on and I’ll keep shooting for the show from next week.
“I am honored and privileged to work with a great casting company and life goes on.”
The incident sparked a wave of public support, with messages from hundreds of people from Hull and beyond.
A Humberside Police Department spokesman said, “We are requesting witnesses to an incident in which a man was injured in his face.
“It was reported that at 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 29, 2021, a 22-year-old man was hit multiple times in the face by two men, causing facial injuries that required hospital treatment.
