Emmerdale actor Mark Jordon has pleaded not guilty to charges of GBH.
The 53-year-old arrived in court on 8 November to face charges of GBH after being accused of common assault against 67-year-old Andy Potts.
Jordon, who plays Daz Spencer in the ITV soap, appeared in court to confirm his name, date of birth, address and nationality to the courtroom. His rep then confirmed he was pleading not guilty to the charges.
He was then granted unconditional bail, with a date of 6 December to appear at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court, according to The Mirror.
The incident is said to have the Farrers Arms Pub in Oldham on 1 July.
He arrived at Tameside Magistrates Court, in Ashton-under-Lyne supported by his partner and Emmerdale co-star Laura Norton.
Potts was also seen arriving at court for the case, which relates to the incident at a pub in Oldham.
As well as playing Daz Spencer in the soap Jordon is also for his notable role as Heartbeats Phil Bellamy.
At the time of Jordon being charged, a spokesperson from Greater Manchester Police told Metro.co.uk: A man has been charged in connection with an assault in Oldham. Mark Jordon has been charged with GBH and section 39 common assault. He will appear at Tameside Magistrates Court on 8th November 2018.
Shortly before 9.30pm on Sunday 1st July 2018, police were called to reports of an assault in Oldham. A 67-year-old man was taken to hospital with facial injuries.
Jordon reportedly still remains on the show. It was originally suggested that he could be suspended over the charges but a source told The Sun: Producers have spent a lot of time weighing up what to do about the situation. He has been waiting a while for them to make a decision, but they finally told him this week he can continue to appear on screen.
They understand its a very serious situation but they dont think suspending him will help anything — especially while legal matters are still ongoing.
