The Metropolitan Police said: 'Dylan Mills, 36, of Sevenoaks, Kent, has been charged with assault after an incident at a residential address in Streatham on 8 June.

'Officers attended and a woman reported minor injuries. She did not require hospital treatment. Mills is due to appear at Croydon Magistrates' Court on Friday, 3 September.'

He has had a litany of UK number one hits including Fix Up, Look Sharp and Bonkers. 

His private life is little reported on as the musician prefers to keep press coverage to a minimum but it is believed that he has previously dated model Kaya Bousquet, who died in a high-speed car crash in 2008.
