  Girls Aloud's Cheryl makes court appearance
Updated 25 March 2003, 18.25
Cheryl arrives at court
Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Tweedy has made an appearance in court charged with something called "racially aggravated assault".

Cheryl, 19, is accused of attacking a toilet attendant after an argument in a Surrey nightclub back in January.

Afterwards, Cheryl denied the accusations in a statement.

The charges she faces deal with "racist violence and harassment", according to the law.

They are slightly different from other assault charges because the maximum punishment is higher - two years in prison and/or a fine.

Dressed for it

Cheryl, who arrived at court in a car with blacked out windows, was sensibly dressed for court in a long jacket, shades and trousers.

She'll now have to wait until 4 April to go back to court again when the case will be heard properly.
