Comedian Justin Lee Collins is to stand trial for allegedly harassing his former girlfriend.

The Friday Night Project host from Kew, who is 37, has denied putting ex-partner Anna Larke in "fear of violence" between January and July last year.

Collins appeared at St Albans Crown Court for a plea and case management hearing, where the case was adjourned for trial on September 24.

The 37 year old spoke to confirm his name and to plead not guilty to a charge of harassment, causing fear of violence.

Collins was granted bail on condition that he does not contact Ms Larke or her relatives.
