COMEDIAN Charlie Hale has been ordered to carry out community service after admitting attacking his wife.

The 63-year-old, whose real name is Charles Hansen, admitted assault at Warrington Magistrates Court in relation to an incident late last year.

Hale, of Padgate, was told to complete 250 hours of unpaid work and handed a rehabilitation activity requirement of up to 20 days.

A restraining order preventing him from contacting his partner or approaching her home was imposed for a period of three years.

Magistrates also ordered the XS Radio presenter to pay compensation of £150, £500 in court costs and a £90 victim surcharge.
