Essex Police said the alleged attack happened outside a nightclub in Chelmsford in the early hours of yesterday morning.

The 26-year-old, whose real name is Costadinos Contostavlos, has been bailed pending a court appearance.

Dappy was arrested after an appearance at Chicago's nightclub in the city.

He posted a message on Twitter which read: " Had a great night in Chicagos. Crowd was amazing."
