He told the Star he was shocked when he heard of his arrest.
The friend said: “When I saw him in the papers it was quite a shock.
“(At college) he had a wide range of friends, a big peer group. He was a popular guy.
“Through the time that I knew Mr Mills, both socially and professionally, I must say that this accusation is beyond comprehension and character for him.
“I recall the birth of Mr Mills' child some years ago and I remember him being a proud and caring father, so as a result I had found this story as very difficult to take on board.”
