Mr Whittle was arrested after allegedly striking a photographer with his car

Strictly Come Dancing runner-up Ricky Whittle has appeared before Liverpool magistrates to deny dangerous driving.

The 29-year-old Hollyoaks actor was arrested at the end of November after he allegedly struck a photographer with his car in Liverpool.

He will reappear at the court on 12 March for a committal hearing to Liverpool Crown Court.

Mr Whittle, of Billinge, near Wigan, spoke only to confirm his name, date of birth and plea during the hearing.

He was granted unconditional bail.

As he walked away from the building, Whittle picked up a cameraman who had slipped on ice while walking backwards to film him.
