The widower of reality TV star Jade Goody is facing trial accused of raping a teenager.

Jack Tweed is accused of attacking the 19-year-old after meeting her at a nightclub in London’s West End on September 4 last year.

The 22-year-old club promoter and his friend Anthony Davis denied two counts of rape at hearing in December.

The attack is alleged to have taken place at Tweed’s former home in Brandesbury Square, Repton Park, Woodford Green, east London.

Prosecutors claim Tweed met the woman at the Embassy club in Mayfair before inviting her back to the rented townhouse.

Tweed, who married Big Brother star Goody, 27, shortly before she lost her battle against cervical cancer in March 2009, was arrested later that day.

Both Tweed and Davis, a 25-year-old estate agent, of Stradbroke Drive, Chigwell, Essex, are on bail.

The trial at Snaresbrook Crown Court, in east London, is expected to last up to three weeks.
