Former I’m A Celebrity contestant Aggro Santos raped two girls, one aged just 16, when he took them back to his hotel room after performing at gigs, a court has heard.

The 24-year-old Brazilian-born rapper is alleged to have forced one of the victims to have sex with him after he performed at the opening of Club Soho in Yeovil, Somerset, on September 25, 2010.

He is then accused of raping a then 16-year-old girl in 2011 after the University of Chichester summer ball while friend and co-defendant Tyrelle Ritchie, 22, forced her to perform oral sex on him.

Chichester Crown Court heard that in the second incident in Chichester, on May 7 last year, Santos had performed at the university’s summer ball when his crew invited the victim, her older sister, who was a student at the university, and two friends backstage for drinks.

Isobel Ascherson, prosecuting, said the group were then invited to an after-show party at the nearby Ship Hotel.

Miss Ascherson said the 16-year-old had consensual sex with Santos in his hotel bathroom while her sister had consensual sex with 21-year-old Ritchie in another room.

She said the victim then accused Santos of forcing her to have sex for a second time at the same time as Ritchie forced her to perform oral sex on him in the hotel room.

The police were called when the older sister found out what had happened.

Santos, who is charged under his real name Yuri Santos, of Bickersteth Road, Tooting, south west London, denies two counts of rape.
