Adam Ant denies assault
Adam Ant aka Stuart Goddard
The pop star's real name is Stuart Leslie Goddard
Former pop star Adam Ant has appeared at London's Old Bailey to deny charges he broke a pub window and threatened a man with a gun.

The 1980s idol appeared under his real name, Stuart Leslie Goddard, and was further remanded until 3 July, when the trial date is likely to be set.

Mr Goddard, 47, of Primrose Hill, north London, pleaded not guilty to three offences alleged to have taken place on 12 January.

He denied damaging a window at the Prince of Wales pub in Kentish Town, north London, assault causing actual bodily harm to Plato Contostavlos and using an imitation revolver to threaten Jeffrey Eccles.

1980s fame

Mr Goddard, sporting a beard, spoke only to answer his name and agree to abide by his bail conditions.

The bespectacled singer wore a camel-coloured overcoat and blue, shiny trousers.

He found fame in the early 1980s, singing such hits as Goody Two Shoes, Prince Charming and Stand and Deliver, before later becoming an actor.

The former punk was also known for his outrageous costumes, dressing as pirates and highwaymen and wearing a white stripe across his face.
