The So Macho singer is said to have been left 'shocked' and 'humiliated' after allegedly being shoved and having a napkin thrown at her at the Salmontini restaurant in central London on April 1 last year.

Dawn, who is married to former footballer Ashley Ward and features in the ITVBe reality show, denies one count of common assault.
