Ched Evans has launched a new challenge against his conviction for rape and will have his case heard by three judges at the Court of Appeal.
The Lord Chief Justice Lord Judge, sitting with Mr Justice Mitting and Mr Justice Griffith Williams in London, will hear a renewed application by the former-footballer for leave to appeal against conviction.
Evans lost the first stage of the appeal process in August when his application for leave was rejected by a single judge considering the case on the papers.
Submissions on his behalf will be presented to the full court today in a bid to have the conviction overturned.
