An arrest which took place following the raid of a home in Cork has turned out to be the son of a famous Irish celebrity.

Television chef, Rachel Allen, released a statement to The Irish Mirror following the arrest of her son Joshua.

She told Niall O'Connor that her son has been arrested on suspicion of being in possession of illegal drugs with intent to supply.

"He has admitted his guilt immediately and co-operated fully with the Gardaí.

"We are absolutely devastated at this turn of events.

"We do not in any way condone his actions, in fact, we utterly condemn them, but it is not for us to condemn him," she told O'Connor.
