Former Celebrity Big Brother star Dane Bowers has pleaded not guilty to two charges of assault following an alleged brawl at a holiday camp.

The former Another Level singer was the headline act at a 1990s night at the Butlin's resort in Bognor Regis, West Sussex, when the incident occurred on April 20.

The 33-year-old DJ, from Coulsdon, Surrey, who previously dated Katie Price, appeared at Worthing Magistrates' Court and the case was adjourned for trial.

His brother, Wade Bowers, 31, also appeared in court and pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of cocaine but not guilty to assault by beating.

A third man, Terry Kean, 35, also pleaded guilty to cocaine possession but not guilty to using threatening words.

All three defendants were released on unconditional bail until the trial at Chichester Magistrates' Court on October 29.

Bowers, a former Brit School student, became famous in the late-1990s as a member of R&B band Another Level and after the group disbanded he sang a duet, Out Of Your Mind, with Victoria Beckham.

He went on to appear in Celebrity Big Brother in 2010.
