Comic Collins's ex denies trying to blackmail him
THE ex-girlfriend of comic Justin Lee Collins yesterday denied trying to blackmail him.
Anna Larke (38), who alleges Collins harassed her during their relationship, was asked by Sonia Woodley, defending Collins (also 38) at St Albans Crown Court, if she had threatened to report him to police if he did not give her £20,000 (€25,000) after they broke up.
Ms Larke replied: "Oh my god, that's absolute lies. I've never said that."
The trial continues.
