A FORMER Hollyoaks actress from Ascot was arrested after being refused alcohol on a flight from Greece, a court has heard.

Jemma Keys, 33, the daughter of disgraced Sky football pundit Richard Keys was refused alcohol by cabin staff and arrested after she downed six shots of gin on a flight to London Gatwick.

Appearing at Crawley Magistrates' Court on Friday (3), Keys admitted being drunk on an aircraft, but said she had 'no recollection of the flight' and was mortified by the ordeal.

The court heard how her boyfriend had ordered three double gins and a small bottle of tonic, which were promptly drunk by Keys, who is known to struggle with alcoholism.

Jeremy King, prosecuting, said: "Miss Keys was on a flight heading toward Gatwick Airport from Greece. Around 30 minutes or so into the flight the drinks service was provided.

"The flight attendant found Miss Keys' seat to be empty but her partner was in the seat next to her and ordered three double gins, one tonic and one beer.

"By that point Miss Keys returned to her seat and ordered another gin and a lemonade."

Keys was handed a conditional discharge by the court.
