The boyfriend of late singer Amy Winehouse has denied raping a woman on New Year's Eve.

Reg Traviss, 35, appeared at Southwark Crown Court and entered not guilty pleas to two counts of rape on December 31 last year.

The woman alleges that she got drunk on a night out and the next thing she remembers is Traviss having sex with her, the court heard.

Traviss, of Devonshire Street, Marylebone, central London, was Winehouse's boyfriend when she died at her home in Camden, north London last July.

Wearing a grey suit, white shirt and red tie, he was told that he will face a three-day trial on December 10.

He was released on bail until that date.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
