    The publication reports that in one clip, Jack is seemingly holding on to a canister of nitrous oxide (hippy crack) while dancing around a room.

    While in other footage he is seen inhaling from a black balloon alongside his pals.

    The father-of-one appeared in great spirits as he laughed and larked around with his pals as another filmed them.

    The shocking scenes sparked concern from the reality star’s fans, with one person commenting on the video: ‘Jack’s struggled in the past – any fan of his would be worried. I was shocked when I saw the video.

    ‘Everyone remembers him as the nice lad from Love Island, and just wants him to be happy.’

    MailOnline have contacted representative of Jack for comment.     

    Nitrous oxide or laughing gas – also known as ‘hippy crack’ – is used as an anaesthetic by dentists and during childbirth.

    Currently the gas is also legally available for commercial caterers to use in whipped cream dispensers and other uses.

    But it has dangerous side effects, and in the worst cases can be lethal. It was banned as a recreational drug under the 2016 Psychoactive Substances Act, but the rules are riddled with loopholes and it is simple to buy the drug online. 

    WHAT IS NITROUS OXIDE (aka Hippy Crack or Nos)

    Nos, also known as laughing gas, is a gas called nitrous oxide which people inhale to get high.

    The drug is illegal for recreational use but is used by chefs to make whipped cream so is easy to buy. 

    People inhaling the drug usually do so by filling a balloon with it and breathing it in over the course of a minute or so.

    The drug can produce a feeling of euphoria, lead to laughing or fits of giggles, cause hallucinations, and distort the sounds people hear.

    Its effects are usually short-lived but it can cause much longer lasting health damage.

    Because breathing it in essentially replaces the air you breathe with the drug, there is a risk of suffocation. People may also pass out because of the lack of oxygen. 

    Inhaling nitrous oxide can also lead to severe headaches, dizziness, paranoia or stop you being able to think straight.

    It can also become addictive and, over time, lead to a vitamin B12 deficiency which can cause nerve damage in the hands and feet. Long-term use can also stop the body producing white blood cells effectively, damaging the immune system.

    The drug can produce a feeling of euphoria, lead to laughing or fits of giggles, cause hallucinations, and distort the sounds people hear.

    Its effects are usually short-lived but it can cause much longer lasting health damage.

    Overuse can lead to suffocation and even death. While prolonged use can cause anaemia and vitamin B12 deficiency. 

    Other short-term side effects include dizziness, paranoia, headaches and unconsciousness.

    The footage comes just weeks after revealed he is struggling with addiction and depression during an Instagram post, as he discussed dealing with a ‘torrent’ of online abuse and ‘fake’ friends. 

    The TV personality, who has recently appeared in TOWIE, admitted he was in a ‘really dark place’ without anywhere to turn or pals to talk to, after feeling like he has let his loved ones down. 

    Before uploading the video to his social media account, Jack penned: ‘Thanks for the amazing supportive message[s] I’m overwhelmed. 

    ‘I deleted this video as I was embarrassed but I am beginning my road to recovery. And believe me the comeback will be stronger #bekind.’ [sic]

    Then speaking to the camera while alone, a sombre Jack said: ‘To touch on what’s going on, I’m really struggling. Really struggling with anxiety and depression, addiction and I’ve made some good steps today to get help.

    ‘I can’t do it on my own. In this fame industry it’s hard, it’s so cut throat. One minute people like you and one minute they don’t.

    ‘I’ve had a lot of fake friends come and go, I was surprised when I was in my dark space, all the people who said they would be there, weren’t.

    ‘I’m not going to feel sorry for myself, I’ve got my own responsibilities. I want to be a kind, nice person and I try my best.’

    The star, who recently had a brush with police and split from TOWIE’s Frankie Sims, admitted that social media hate hurts him, but he is choosing to talk to his followers as he has no one else to turn to – aside from his family. 

    He continued:  ‘There’s been obstacles, some people have opinions on my life. The torrent of abuse on Instagram has really affected me. It couldn’t be further from the truth. Words hurt and we do see them.

    ‘I thought I had thick skin but obviously not, ill be back though – bigger and stronger.

    ‘I’ve turned off my like count and comments because it was bringing me down. It was putting me into a bad space.

    ‘I can’t argue with thousands of people and give them my side of the story.

    ‘I’ll keep you updated, I’m a happy go lucky person, I’ve a lot of love to give. But I don’t know who I’m talking to, I’m talking to you guys because I feel I have nobody else to talk to apart from my family obviously.

    ‘But sometimes opinions from other people do help. Sorry to be depressing.’

    Jack explained why he decided to share his feelings: ‘The reason I’m saying this is if I can just help one person I’m happy.

    ‘You should speak out about mental health because it’s a serious thing, it’s awful. It affects you physically, you don’t want to do anything or exercise. Leave the house.

    ‘I’m sorry this is downbeat but I wanted to address it because over the last few weeks I’ve been getting some nasty, over the top remarks.

    ‘People think it doesn’t affect you but it does, it’s not nice. The added pressure of whatever you do reflects on your family, that’s the worse pressure on earth. I feel like I’ve let everyone down.

    ‘I promise everyone I’ve turned over a new leaf and I want to make everyone proud.’

    In July, Jack appeared in court to deny driving while high on cocaine and Valium.

    The TV star was stopped by police driving his £30,000 Mercedes around a mile from his home in Swanley, Kent, Sevenoaks Magistrates Court heard. 

    Prosecutors claim Fincham was found to have 239 micrograms of benzoylecgonine — a by-product of cocaine — per litre of blood. The limit is 50 micrograms.

    They say he also had 632 micrograms of diazepam – the chemical name for the sedative valium – per litre of blood when the limit is 550. 

    Challenges: He continued: 'There's been obstacles, some people have opinions on my life. The torrent of abuse on Instagram has really affected me. It couldn't be furtherer from the truth. Words hurt and we do see them'

    His two-year-old white Mercedes C200 AMG was stopped on the B2173 on January 4, according to the charge sheet.

    He was been charged with two counts of driving a motor vehicle with a proportion of a specified controlled drug above the specified limit.

    Jack pleaded not guilty to both charges. He was granted unconditional bail to appear at Maidstone Magistrates’ Court at 10am on December 9.

    Meanwhile, back in 2019, Jack confessed to binging on cocaine during a wild night out after finding fame on Love Island.

    The reality star said that he caved to peer pressure after finding himself on nights out where the drinks are free and everyone is trying to be his friend.

    He told The Sun: ”I’m in a new world of partying and stuff, and being in circles that I would never normally have been in.

    ‘I’d never normally be in these situations but, yes, since winning the show I have been offered cocaine a lot.’

    He confessed that after a long night of drinking he got carried away and made a mistake which he now massively regrets.

    Following a night at a club, Jack’s group headed back to a hotel in Maidstone, Kent, where he admits he snorted cocaine in the early hours. 

    At the time, Jack claimed that taking drugs isn’t a regular thing for him and he insists that it isn’t something he will be making a habit of and will never be doing again.
