Radio DJ Neil 'Dr' Fox has been charged with six additional counts of historical child abuse charges, bringing the total number of accusation to 15. Fox, 54, is now accused of assaulting nine victims, six of who were under 16 at the time of the alleged offences, over a period of 27 years.

The Magic FM presenter appeared at Westminster Magistrates Court to deny the six new accounts of indecent assault against three girls under the age of 16 between 1987 and 1988. He had previously denied three counts of indecent assault against three underage girls as well as a further four counts of indent assault and two sexual assaults against three female victims between 1991 and 2014.

The former Capital FM DJ and judge on ITV's Pop Idol is due to stand trial on 5 November to face the original charges, while another hearing on 6 October will determine where he will stand trial for the latest allegations.

The accusations against the DJ include forcing himself on a girl as young as 13, assaulting a teenager at Chessington World of Adventures and assaulting two different girls at a summer 1991 motor show in Bromley, south east London.

Four of the alleged indecent assaults are said to have taken place at Capital Radio in 2003. Fox denies all the allegations against him.
