TV presenter Caroline Flack has pleaded not guilty to assaulting her boyfriend at her flat in London.
Police were called to her home in Islington on 12 December after reports of a man being assaulted and she was charged the following day.
The 40-year-old stood down as host of ITV2’s Love Island last week.
Ms Flack’s partner, Lewis Burton, watched proceedings from the public gallery at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court.
Paul Morris, defending, said Mr Burton had “never supported” the case against Ms Flack, and he was “not the victim”.
However, prosecutor Katie Weiss said: “Mr Burton is a victim, he received significant injury to his head.”
