British rapper Dappy is to stand trial over allegations he was involved in a violent brawl at a gas station.

The N-Dubz star appeared at Guildford Crown Court, England on Thursday under his real name Costadinos Contostavlos, and entered a not guilty plea to a charge of affray.

The musician was arrested earlier this year following an alleged altercation on the forecourt of a petrol station in Guildford in February.

The star has been ordered to stand trial at a date yet to be fixed, along with three pals - Kieran Patrick Vassell, Kalonji David Stewart and Alfred James Miller.
