DJ Neil “Dr” Fox has denied six new charges of historical sex offences brought against him.

The 54-year-old had previously denied seven counts of indecent assault and two counts of sexual touching without consent, against six female complainants between 1991 and 2014. 

Six additional counts of indecent assault relating to three different girls under the age of 16 in 1987 and 1988 were put to him at Westminster Magistrates Court today. 

One of the allegations is that he forced himself on a girl as young as 13, and attacked a teenager at a popular theme park. 

As well as in public places, the offences are alleged to have taken place at the Capital Radio and Magic FM stations, where Mr Fox has worked. He left Capital FM in 2005 after working there for 18 years.

Between 2001 and 2003 he served as a judge on music talent show Pop Idol alongside Simon Cowell and Pete Waterman. 

At a previous hearing, prosecutors said allegations against Mr Fox show a "consistent and determined pattern of sexual predatory behaviour".

He is due to stand trial on the original charges on 5 November. 

Another hearing on 6 October will determine where the trial for the new alleged offences will take place.
