Frost, who wore a grey tracksuit in the dock was also charged with two counts of dangerous driving, common assault and causing actual bodily harm.

Frost did not enter pleas to any of the counts, and the court was told the case was too serious to be heard at Peterborough Magistrates Court.

A bail application was refused, and District Judge Ken Sheraton adjourned the case until Friday, February 3, when Frost will appear at Peterborough Crown Court.
