Football pundit Jermaine Jenas is being prosecuted after allegedly being caught using his mobile phone at the wheel.

The former Tottenham and England midfielder, 39, was said to be driving a black Range Rover in Stanmore at the time of the alleged offence on the afternoon of October 14 last year.

The One Show television presenter, who lives in Elstree, is being prosecuted under the single justice procedure and the case is due to be dealt with behind closed doors at Bromley Magistrates’ Court on Friday.

Jenas allegedly drove in Marsh Lane “when he was at the time using an interactive communications device, namely handheld mobile device”, according to court papers.

According to the Government, using a phone while driving can lead to six points on your driving licence or a £200 fine and/or a driving ban.
