Myleene Klass has reportedly been left in tears after she was allegedly spat in the face by an Uber driver on Friday 9 April.

The mum-of-three, who shared a clever time-saving mum hair hack, called police to say she had been assaulted, just half an hour before she was set to go live for her Smooth radio show.

The 43 year old is said to have had a dispute with the driver about where to stop, which is when he allegedly spat on her as she exited the vehicle in tears.

A source told The Sun: "Myleene was shocked that he spat on her. She panicked and felt trapped, worried that she wouldn't be able to get out.

"She was relieved it happened in a public place," the insider shared.

After composing herself, the radio host presented her two-hour Smooth radio show.

The source added: "She's a strong woman and was a trouper to present her show."

The musician, who opened up about her wedding plans to Simon Motson, became the first celebrity to leave Dancing On Ice back in January when the show first started.

She was unanimously voted off by the judges as she ended up in the skate-off with skating partner Lukasz Rozycki.

Following her exit, she expressed: "I couldn't have done it without Lukasz, without my family, without my friends watching my videos.

"I had never skated before, I've got a skill I learnt in lockdown – super handy! When the rinks open again I will be there.

"I feel really chuffed, this is the most relaxed I've been the whole competition."
