Eddie Kidd's estranged wife to be sentenced

The estranged wife of Eddie Kidd is due to be sentenced in Brighton today. Samantha Kidd admitted assaulting the paralysed motorbike stunt rider, days before she was due to stand trial.

Samantha Kidd, who is 44, pleaded not guilty in January to claims she beat the 54-year-old wheelchair-bound star over a four-month period, and a two-day trial was set to start earlier this month.

But at a pre-trial hearing at Brighton Magistrates' Court on July 4, Kidd admitted four counts of assault by beating between July and October last year.
