Model Jodie Marsh has been charged with harassment over text messages she is alleged to have sent to her ex-husband.

The 37-year-old celebrity was arrested last month and charged on Tuesday in relation to the messages she is said to have sent to James Placido.

Essex Police said she was accused of two counts of harassment without violence.

Ms Marsh, from Great Dunmow in Essex, is due to appear at Chelmsford Magistrates' Court on 9 November.

Her agent KTS Talent Management said "she looks forward to going to court".
