N-Dubz rapper Dappy was in court today over a fight at a petrol station.

Dappy, whose actual name is Dino Costas Contostavlos, denies affray.

The confrontation happened on the forecourt of a Shell garage in Woodbridge Road, Guildford, Surrey, in the early hours of February 28.

Three men were left with facial injuries by the incident.

Dappy, 24, of Camden Town, north London, was arrested on March 12.

Three other men are also in the dock.

Lawyers indicated that Contostavlos and the other defendents denied the allegations.

Waiting fans outside Guildford Magistrates Court were treated to hugs from the star after the brief hearing.
