Watch: Myleene Klass 'spat on by Uber driver'
Myleene Klass was allegedly spat at by a taxi driver over a dispute about where she should be dropped off.
The 43-year-old musician and presenter was on her way to present her Smooth Radio show at Global headquarters in London's Leicester Square on Friday, 9 April when the incident took place.
According to The Sun, former Popstars star Klass called the police to say she had been assaulted after she and the Uber driver disagreed about where the car should stop.
Photographers waiting to picture presenters on their way into the building are said to have noticed Klass was shaken and tearful, and asked her if she was okay.
The Metropolitan Police said in a statement: “Police are investigating an allegation of assault.
“The complainant, a 43-year-old woman, was allegedly spat at as she left a private hire vehicle.
“There have been no arrests and enquiries continue.”
The incident is believed to have been captured on CCTV.
Klass — a classically trained pianist — rose to fame in 2001 after being picked as one of the winners of TV talent show Popstars and becoming a member of pop group Hear'Say.
She has gone on to appear in reality shows I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! in 2006 and earlier this year was the first contestant to be eliminated from Dancing On Ice.
Klass has a regular Saturday Drivetime show on Smooth Radio and also fills in for Kate Garraway presenting the 10am to 1pm weekday slot.
During lockdown she hosted free music classes on social media with the help of her daughters Ava, 13, and 10-year-old Hero.
She also has a one-year-old son Apollo with her current partner Simon Motson.
