E17 star on drugs charges
Brian Harvey
Brian Harvey enjoyed success with the band East 17
Pop star Brian Harvey has appeared in court on two drugs charges.

The former East 17 singer is accused of supplying cocaine on 26 April this year and a further charge of possessing 389 milligrams of the Class A drug in Chingford, Essex.

He was granted conditional bail at Chelmsford Magistrates Court and told not to contact prosecution witnesses.

Mr Harvey, who spoke only to confirm his name, age and address, had his case adjourned until 10 July.

The 27-year-old singer enjoyed a string of hits with East 17 before he was sacked from the band in 1997.

After the departure of songwriter Tony Mortimer he had further success with the re-named E17.

Mr Harvey, who had a stormy relationship with soap actress Daniella Westbrook, recently made the top 20 with a song written by rap producer Wyclef Jean called Loving You.

In December 2001 the singer was attacked as he left a nightclub in Nottingham and required plastic surgery for a head wound.

He suffered an embarrassing moment in October when no-one turned up for a record signing in his native Walthamstow, east London.

Mr Harvey pulled out from the event moments before it was due to start because of a "television appearance".
