Jade Goody's widower Jack to be sentenced for assault

Tuesday August 16, 2011

The widower of reality TV star Jade Goody is due to be sentenced after admitting assaulting a man outside a nightclub.

Jack Tweed, 24, who married Big Brother star Jade Goody shortly before she tragically died from cervical cancer in March 2009, is due to appear at Redbridge Magistrates' Court in Ilford, Essex on Tuesday.

He was involved in a brawl outside Deuces Bar and Lounge in Chigwell, Essex, on January 3 in which 21-year-old builder Tom Grantham was knocked unconscious.

Jack punched Tom in the head and then tried to kick him because he thought he had threatened to petrol bomb the bar.

The venue had suffered an arson attack in October last year after Jack and Mark Wright, who appears in reality series The Only Way is Essex, had invested money in its refurbishment.

It was then targeted for a second time on New year's Eve, four days before the assault. 

Jack will appear alongside his brother, Lewis Tweed, 21, who also assaulted Tom.

Both men have admitted common assault.

Earlier this month Mark was cleared of using threatening behaviour towards the victim.
