Television presenter Justin Lee Collins has been charged with harassment, following allegations made by an ex-girlfriend.
The comedian was arrested in October and questioned by police on 13 December over a complaint made by former partner, Anna Larke.
A spokesperson told the Mirror:
"Justin denies the charge that has been brought against him. He is shocked and upset by it.
"He is unable to comment on the circumstances and events to which the charge relates because of the proceedings, but he is confident that he will prove his innocence."
Collins is currently starring at the Shaftesbury Theatre in the West End musical, Rock of Ages and is due to appear at St Albans Magistrates' Court on Wednesday 22 December.
The former Friday Night Project host split with his wife of seven years in February of this year.
