Kerry's new boyfriend James English once assaulted a woman and SPAT in her face in a McDonald's bust-up as shocking violent past is revealed

She previously accused her estranged boxer husband George Kay of spitting in her face and displaying 'controlling' behaviour. 

And it seems Kerry Katona's new boyfriend James English has a violent past, as it has emerged the Scottish comedian once assaulted a woman and spat in her face.

The shamed 32-year-old actor, who was pals with slain gangster Euan 'EJ' Johnston, pled guilty to the assault during a furious bust-up at a McDonald's in 2015.

Kerry seemed unfazed by James' past as she was pictured kissing him passionately at a London airport last week - three months after splitting from George.

In April, James was initially charged with punching Michelle McArthur, 33, on the head and pulling her hair to the extent of an injury.

But that was later deleted from the charge - and instead he pled guilty to assault and spitting in her face during the brawl in November 2015.

James, who appeared on the reality show Glow last year, which was dubbed as 'Scotland's answer to TOWIE', had his sentence put back for a year for good behaviour when he appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court.
