Jade Goody's widower Jack Tweed was charged by police over a scuffle outside an Essex nightclub.

The 23-year-old was accused of threatening and abusive behaviour after answering bail at a police station in Ilford, east London.

He will appear alongside his younger brother Lewis, 20, and friend Mark Wright, 24, at Redbridge Magistrates' Court next Tuesday.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said they have been charged under section four of the Public Order Act.

Police got in touch with Tweed after a brawl outside Wright's Deuces Bar and Lounge in Chigwell in the early hours of January 3.

Wright, who appeared in reality TV programme The Only Way Is Essex, and Lewis Tweed were arrested at the scene. Jack Tweed was later arrested by appointment.

A 21-year-old builder suffered a black eye and bruised face during the punch-up. He declined medical treatment.

Tweed married Big Brother star Goody, 27, shortly before she lost her battle against cervical cancer in March 2009.
