No charges against star's partner

The boyfriend of Hell's Kitchen winner Jennifer Ellison has had robbery charges against him dropped.

The pop star and former Brookside actress was arrested with Anthony Mark Richardson on 16 June over the incident at Jewel club, Covent Garden, London.

Mr Richardson, 25, was charged with robbery of a Sony MiniDisc player from a 23-year-old man.

But Bow Street magistrates were told on Wednesday the charges had been dropped because of lack of evidence.

Mr Richardson, who has also been charged with a public order offence over an alleged row over parking in Liverpool, did not appear in court.

Last September, shots were fired at the house Ms Ellison shares with Mr Richardson in West Derby, Liverpool.

No-one was injured, and no-one was in at the time.

Ms Ellison won the ITV cookery show, starring celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, earlier this year.
