Tweed in custody on rape count

REALITY TV star Jade Goody's widower Jack Tweed was remanded in custody on a rape charge by a court yesterday.

The 22-year-old, who wore a blue hooded top, spoke only to confirm his name, address and date of birth at Redbridge Magistrates' Court. He was taken into custody until September 21 when he will appear at Snaresbrook Crown Court.

Earlier, police said Tweed had been charged with one count of rape in connection with an incident in the early hours of Friday.

The court heard how the suspected offence took place at Tweed's home in east London.

Police arrested Tweed and another man in his 20s on Friday after a teenage woman reported she had been sexually assaulted. The second man has been bailed.

Tweed, who has been in and out of the headlines, was jailed for 12 weeks in April, shortly after his wife's death, for assaulting a taxi driver.
