Jade Goody's widower Jack Tweed has appeared in court over alleged threatening and abusive behaviour.

Mr Tweed, 23, is accused of the conduct during a scuffle outside Deuces Bar and Lounge, in Chigwell, Essex, on 3 January.

He spoke only to confirm his name and address to magistrates in Redbridge, north-east London.

The hearing has been adjourned until 22 February.

Mr Tweed appeared with younger brother Lewis, 20, and friend Mark Wright, 24, who are accused of the same crime.

No pleas were entered and all three men were released on unconditional bail.

Mr Tweed married Big Brother star Goody, 27, shortly before she lost her battle against cervical cancer in March 2009.

Mr Wright, 23, appears in reality TV programme The Only Way Is Essex.

A 21-year-old builder suffered a black eye and bruised face during the brawl, but refused medical treatment.
