Former Another Level star Dane Bowers is set to face trial over an alleged assault on his ex-fiancee.

Mr Bowers, 35, has denied one count of assault by beating against Sophia Cahill in Croydon, south London, in January.

The singer appeared at Croydon Magistrates' Court, where he was told he must return on 27 July for trial.

He was released on unconditional bail and ordered not to contact Ms Cahill directly or indirectly.

The former Brit School student became famous as a member of R&B band Another Level, and recorded a duet with Victoria Beckham after the group split.

He went on to appear in Celebrity Big Brother in 2010 and also appeared on the ITV2 show The Big Reunion last year.
