Singer Amy Winehouse's husband's plea hearing over assault and conspiracy charges has been adjourned.

Blake Fielder-Civil, 25, is charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice and inflicting grievous bodily harm.

The singer blew kisses at her husband at Snaresbrook Crown Court and shouted: "I love you handsome, gorgeous one."

Mr Fielder-Civil, from Camden, north London, is due to enter pleas at Snaresbrook Crown Court on 29 February.

He remains in custody.

Ms Winehouse arrived in court 45 minutes after the hearing began and sat next to Mr Fielder-Civil's mother, Georgette.

Others accused

When her husband was being led from the court she whispered "I love you" to him.

She refused to speak to the reporters in the public gallery.

Mr Fielder-Civil, along with 39-year-old Michael Brown from Holloway, north London, is accused of attacking pub landlord James King at the Macbeths public house in Hoxton, east London, in June 2006.

The pair are accused of conspiring to pervert the course of justice by offering Mr King a significant amount of money to withdraw his allegation and leave the country.

Anthony Kelly, 25, from Chalk Farm, north-west London, James King, 36, from Risley, Derbyshire and Michael Brown, 25, denied the conspiracy charge at the hearing on Friday.

Brown did not enter a plea to the assault charge.

All four have been remanded in custody and are expected to go on trial in 2 June.

James Kennedy, 19, of The Holdings, Hatfield, Hertfordshire, is also accused of being a part of the conspiracy.

He is on bail and will appear with the other four accused in February.
