jack-tweed-jade-goodyJack Tweed, the widower of reality TV star Jade Goody, has been ordered to stand trial accused of raping a teenager.

Sad and shocking news for all concerned we think.

Tweed allegedly met the 19 year-old at a West End nightspot before taking her to his home in Woodford Green, East London on Friday September 4.

The 22 year-old who was only released from prison for attacking a cabbie in the spring, was not present when his case was briefly mentioned at London’s Snaresbrook Crown Court.

He has allegedly indicated through counsel that he will deny the charges at a pleas and directions hearing on December 22nd.

The judge, who ‘provisionally’ fixed their two-week trial for April 12, told the estate agent he could remain on bail.

Tweed married Big Brother star Jade, 27, shortly before she lost her battle against cervical cancer in March.
