The former So Solid Crew star has been accused of two counts of using threatening behaviour with intent to cause distress and one of racially-aggravated harassment over a heated confrontation with staff at a London hotel in May (15).

Walters allegedly launched into a threatening tirade against a receptionist and a manager over a bill as he tried to check out of the Hilton hotel in Islington, north London.

Walters, 33, who has denied all the charges, appeared at Blackfriars Crown Court on Thursday (10Dec15) and a trial date was set for 9 May (16).

He was bailed until the next hearing in February (16) on the condition that he stays away from the hotel.
