Harassment charges against model Jodie Marsh have been dropped and the case against her discontinued.

The 37-year-old was arrested in September before being charged in relation to alleged messages sent to her ex-husband James Placido.

Ms Marsh, from Great Dunmow in Essex, was due to appear at Chelmsford Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

However, the case against her has been discontinued by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

A CPS spokeswoman said: "We keep cases under constant review and following a further review of this case it was decided there was no longer sufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction.

"We have contacted the court, Ms Marsh and the complainants to say that we are not continuing with the prosecution."
