The TV presenter was arrested and cautioned after admitting to the offence
Television presenter Melanie Sykes has been arrested and cautioned after assaulting her husband at their home in London.
The 43-year-old spent a night in custody before admitting to the offence and accepting a caution, police said.
A spokesman for Scotland Yard said: “Police were called approximately 9.45pm on Tuesday 26 November to a residential address in Hampstead following reports of an assault.
“A 43-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of common assault and taken to a north London police station. She has since been given a caution for common assault.”
Sykes’ husband, Jack Cockings, 27, did not require hospital treatment, police said.
A spokesman for Sykes declined to comment.
The television presenter, who found fame in adverts for Boddingtons beer in the mid-nineties, married Cockings in May.
