Blonde bombshell McCollum was snapped strolling around Birmingham with the all-black clad bruiser as she films a new documentary.
The goatee-sporting hardman is understood to have worked as a security guard for Jeremy Kyle – and is now believed to be Michella’s new bodyguard.
She was pictured wearing double denim as she showed off her legs while carrying a black handbag.

The 24-year-old has come a long way since she was arrested in 2013 along with Melissa Reid for drug smuggling in Peru.
She was jailed for trying to smuggle £1.5 million out of the South American country – but is now tipped for a future in showbiz.
But she appears to be getting her life back on track after she was spotted at the Jobcentre and has now enrolled on a course at Belfast Metropolitan College.
