Dizzee Rascal's appeal for assaulting his ex-fiancee in June 2021 has been delayed by two months after a witness tested positive for Covid-19.

The musician, 37, whose real name is Dylan Mills, was convicted of attacking Cassandra Jones, 33, and his retrial at the Inner London Crown Court has been adjourned to December 9. 

The court heard in March he pressed his forehead against Ms Jones and pushed her to the ground during a 'chaotic' row at a residential property in Streatham, south London, on June 8 last year.  

He avoided a prison sentence for the offence and was given a 12-month restraining order - banning him from contacting his former partner - along with an electronic tag and a 24 week night time curfew, which is appealing. 

Mills also smashed a camera of PA Media photographer James Manning outside the court in March, shortly after his guilty verdict was handed down.

Ms Jones spoke out after her partner of nine years was convicted of attacking her in front of her two young children.

She told how she wanted to move on with her life for the sake of her children but insisted no woman should suffer at the hands of abusive partners.
