Steve McFadden's ex lover has been arrested after a suspected row outside the EastEnders star 's home.
The actor's former girlfriend and mother of his three-month-old daughter Amelie, Dr Rachel Sidwell, reportedly damaged a moped parked on his driveway and yelled abuse while pounding on his front door last Thursday.
McFadden, who plays Albert Square hardman Phil Mitchell, was out at the time, but his son Matt called the police.
However, the married GP and mum of four had left by the time officers arrived.
McFadden returned to his £750,000 Highgate home after being called by his son, where he gave police her contact details.
Officers then asked Sidwell to attend Hornsey police station the following day where she was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage and was bailed to return in November.
A Met Police spokesman said: "We can confirm police were called to a disturbance at Highgate at 9pm on Thursday 1st October.
"A woman in her early 40s was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage after attending a North London police station by appointment the following day. Inquiries continue."
McFadden and Sidwell met while on the school run but split last month after the medic said the 50-year-old star "couldn't be trusted".
She has now moved back in with her surgeon husband James Green, after she left him to be with the actor.
