Ban for Sugababe Amelle Berrabah after drink driving

Friday October 8, 2010

Amelle Berrabah, a member of British girl group The Sugababes, has been banned from the roads for 14 months after admitting to drink driving.

A lawyer acting for the 26-year-old told Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court that she is sorry for her "exceptionally silly" actions.

Amelle, who has also been fined £2,000, was arrested in the early hours of September 23, after her Mercedes was pulled over in Camden.

Writing on Twitter, the star – pictured leaving court - revealed she had been out drinking the previous night, and had not realised she was still over the limit the next morning.

"I'm so sad this has happened to me," she said. "I got up to do my normal 6am jog. I'd been out the night before for drinks with friends and got stopped on my way to meet my personal trainer.

"And it was obviously still in my system. I'm soooo angry with myself. I felt fine and had a coffee."
