Brit Rebecca Blake and her co-defendant, an Irishman, were handed three- month jail terms in November by Dubai Misdemeanours Court after being found guilty of having an illegal affair.

They were also fined Dhs3,000 each for drinking alcohol and will be deported after serving their sentences.

They were arrested after a taxi driver stopped to report the couple to a passing police patrol.

The pair appeared at Dubai Court of Appeal on Tuesday, where they denied the charge.

The case was adjourned to next month, when a verdict is due.

Both defendants are on bail pending the outcome of their appeal and Blake has previously told British press that she is scared of going to jail.

She told The Sun newspaper: “The thought of going to jail makes me want to cry.”

After being arrested, Blake hired publicist Max Clifford and has spoken publicly on several occasions about the case. More info
