BIG Fat Gypsy Wedding star Paddy Doherty has been charged with common assault and will appear in court later this month.

The 54-year-old, who won Celebrity Big Brother in 2011, was arrested by North Wales Police after a fight in a Deeside pub in late October, 2013.

Doherty, who lives on Riverside Caravan Park in Queensferry, was charged on Monday and will appear in court with Martin McDonagh, 52, who has been charged with the same offence.

Police spokesman Michael McGivern confirmed two men would appear at Flintshire Magistrates Court at Mold on January 27.

“They were charged on January 6 with assault relating to an incident that happened on October 30,” he said.

The two men were originally arrested on suspicion of the offence of wounding.

At the time, the victim was reported as having been treated at the scene by paramedics but had not needed to be admitted to hospital.

Former bare-knuckle boxing champion Doherty moved to the Queensferry caravan site in 2011, when he left the Duchy Road caravan site in Salford.
