Singer Dappy Denies Assault Outside Nightclub
Former N-Dubz singer Dappy has appeared in court where he denied assaulting a man outside a nightclub.
The 26-year-old star is accused of attacking him in the early hours of February 27.
The alleged incident took place after the singer made an appearance at Chicago's nightclub in Chelmsford, Essex.
Dappy, whose real name is Costadinos Contostavlos, pleaded not guilty at Chelmsford Magistrates' Court to one count of assault by beating.
Contostavlos, of St Albans, Hertfordshire, stood in the dock in a white shirt, black trousers and black trainers as the charge was read to him.
He was granted unconditional bail and will stand trial at Chelmsford Magistrates' Court on June 18.
In January this year, he was the runner-up in the reality TV show Celebrity Big Brother, behind comedian Jim Davidson.
