A stunning self-proclaimed ‘MILF’ is fighting charges that she attacked her former Ulster rugby star husband and his flashy car.

Former model Olivia Jane Danielli - the daughter of one of Northern Ireland’s richest men - denies assaulting her 6ft 2in ex-rugby international hubby Simon Danielli on August 9, 2015.

Newtownards Magistrates’ Court heard last Wednesday that the mum-of-three, whose address was given as the upmarket Marino Station Road in Holywood, is also accused of destroying or damaging a top-of-the-range 2012 Jaguar XF car, worth £38,000 new, belonging to Mr Danielli.

A solicitor for 28-year-old Ms Danielli claimed that several attempts had been made to come to a resolution before the matter was contested.

Last month the court heard that new video evidence of the alleged incident had emerged and that prosecutors were awaiting further evidence from police and the Public Prosecution Service.

Judge Hamill granted time for the relevant evidence to be gathered and the case will be contested in July at Newtownards Magistrates Court.

Ms Danielli (nee Jennings) is the daughter of one of wealthy property developer Shamus Jennings. In 2012, he was said to be worth £67 million.

The former model previously worked for Alison Clarke’s prestigious agency ACA Models.

On Twitter, glamorous Ms Danielli describes herself as ‘Domestic Goddess, MILF, animal lover. Loves to party!’.

Ex-Bath, Borders and Ulster winger Mr Danielli made 32 appearances for Scotland and 78 for Ulster before being retiring due to a back injury in 2012 .

It is not clear if the pair remain a couple, but Companies House records show that in April 2015 Oxford graduate Mr Danielli resigned a number of directorships with companies linked to the Jennings family.
