Dance music star Basshunter has denied two alleged sex assault charges against fans during a gig in a Fife nightclub.

Jonas Erik Altberg, 26, appeared at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court over allegations he attacked the pair at Kitty's nightclub in the Fife town.

Altberg, from Sweden, who turned up at court with his manager, will now stand trial in May.

The Celebrity Big Brother star was released on bail. He refused to comment to reporters as he left the court.

He is alleged to have grabbed one girl by the hair and pushed her head towards his groin.

A second charge alleges that he grabbed another girl, pushed her towards his groin, then bent her over.

He is further accused of pulling up the girl's dress inside the nightclub.

Mr Altberg, known professionally as Basshunter, scored a UK number one single with Now You're Gone in 2007, as well as hitting top spot across Europe with Boten Anna.
