Former 'I'm A Celebrity' Contestant Accused Of Rape

A former I'm A Celebrity contestant is to appear in court accused of raping two women.

Brazilian-born rapper Aggro Santos, 22, is charged with raping one woman in Chichester, West Sussex, on May 7 and another in Yeovil, Somerset, between September 25 and 26 last year.

Another man, 21-year-old Tyrelle Ritchie, has been charged with one count of sexual assault in Chichester on the same date.

No pleas have yet been entered by Santos, real name Yuri Santos, of Bickersteth Road, Tooting, south west London, and Ritchie, of Vauxhall Street, Lambeth, south east London.

Santos's debut single Candy, featuring former Pussycat Dolls singer Kimberly Wyatt, shot to number five in the UK charts in 2010.

But he became more popularly known by his appearance in the 2010 series of ITV's reality show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! in which he reached the final six.

Both men will appear at a plea and case management hearing at Chichester Crown Court on Thursday.
