BBC Eastenders’ Katie Jarvis pleads guilty to racially aggravated assault and harassment UK News

Former Eastenders actress Katie Jarvis has admitted to harassment and common assault following an incident in Essex.

The 30-year-old actress who played Hayley Slater in the long-running BBC soap opera from 2018 to 2019, had previously denied the two offences, which allegedly happened in Southend-on-Sea on July 31, 2020.

Jarvis, who worked as a security guard after leaving the soap in 2019, changed his guilty pleas at Basildon Crown Court on Tuesday, which was due to be the first day of his trial.

The racially aggravated harassment was against Michelle Antonio and others, while the simple assault was of Toby Groom.

Judge Samantha Leigh released Jarvis on bail to return to court on Wednesday to be sentenced.

The actress first appeared in court in May last year, where she spoke only to confirm her personal details and deny all four charges.
