Suspect held for attempted murder after Gillian Taylforth's ex-fiancé is shot
A man in his forties has been arrested over the shooting of Dave Fairbairn, the ex-fiancé of EastEnders star Gillian Taylforth.
Dave Fairbairn, 64, was shot in the stomach on Sunday, July 5.
The suspect has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.
A MET Police spokesperson told Metro.co.uk: ‘Police investigating a shooting in Enfield have arrested a man in connection with the incident.
‘A man, aged in his forties, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and bailed to return to a date in late August.
‘This follows an incident on 5 July, when police were called by LAS at 19:15hrs to Whitewebbs Lane, Enfield, after a man was found with gunshot injuries to his stomach.
‘Officers attended. The man, aged 64, was treated at the scene before being taken to hospital. The man has since been discharged from hospital.
‘Enquiries into the circumstances are ongoing. Any witnesses or those with information are asked to call 101 ref CAD 7351/5 July.’
Taylforth and Fairbairn — who were reportedly together for six years — called off their wedding in December.
Taylforth is best known for playing Kathy Beale in EastEnders. She made her first appearance in the long-running soap’s very first episode in 1985 and continued to play the character until 2000.
Kathy made an unannounced return in 2015 as part of the serial drama’s 30th anniversary, and has featured in many a huge storyline ever since.
