Roy 'Chubby' Brown denies assault

Roy "Chubby" Brown
The comedian's real name is Royston Vasey

Comedian Roy "Chubby" Brown has denied assaulting a woman during a dispute in a Middlesbrough car park.

The comic, whose real name is Royston Vasey, was charged with common assault on Kelly Oliver following an incident in Wilson Street on 2 September 2009.

He did not appear at Teesside Crown Court, but his solicitor Barry Speker said Mr Vasey "entirely denies the assault".

The 64-year-old, of Northallerton, will stand trial on 10 March.
