The 53-year-old DJ appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court in London on Thursday (16Apr15) and denied seven counts of indecent assault and two of sexual assault.

The charges involve six victims, three of whom were aged under 16 at the time of the alleged attacks between 1991 and 1996. The alleged assaults on the other three complainants occurred between 2003 and 2014.

Fox, who was first arrested in September (14), was suspended from his radio show as the investigation began.

His lawyer previously said the star "categorically denies each and every allegation that has been made against him".

Fox is best known for his stint as a reality TV judge alongside Simon Cowell on U.K. singing contest Pop Idol, the forerunner to American Idol, between 2001 and 2003.
