Playboy James Stunt, 38, and new girlfriend, 24, to face trial for possession of cocaine and assault

FALLEN tycoon James Stunt is facing trial alongside his new girlfriend accused of possessing cocaine and assault.

Stunt, 38, ex-husband of F1 heiress Petra Ecclestone, was arrested after he allegedly assaulted businessman Bijan Burnard and stole his driving licence.

The Playboy is also charged with harassment and damaging a police station.

His girlfriend Helena Robinson, who is 14 years his junior, is accused of assaulting a police officer who attended their home in Knightsbridge.

Shop worker Robinson, who Stunt credited for saving his life by getting him off drugs, is also facing charges for possessing cocaine.

Stunt was pictured arriving at Westminster Magistrates' court this morning giving a thumb's up to cameras.

He spoke only to confirm his name and was bailed to face trial at Southwark Crown Court.

Robinson appeared in court via video-link and was also bailed to appear at Southwark on December 16.

Stunt was arrested at home in Knightsbridge, West London, in August.

Police allegedly found cocaine in his house.

They took him to a central London police station where he is said to have caused £183.55 of damage to property in a cell.

Stunt embarked on a romance with Robinson after his six-year marriage to Bernie Ecclestone's daughter Petra crumbled.

He posted a video of her helping to build a Lego set for his kids and described her as his "angel baby".

The businessman added: "She saved my life – and is even willing to let me fake credit for my children’s Lego. I’ve never met anyone more beautiful, on the inside and out.”

Stunt has also branded Robinson his "Helena of Troy" in gushing posts on social media.

And he has credited the shop worker for helping to get him off drugs and lighting the "fire in my soul once again".
