The ex-boyfriend of a former Saatchi & Saatchi designer could be jailed for throwing a whole roast chicken at her.

Colin Comiskey, 34, launched the cooked bird at Ellen Van De Vusse during a drunken row at their rented home in West Kensington, West London.

A court heard how the couple ended their three-year relationship two months before the fight in January of this year.

Mr Comiskey had come home drunk, prosecutor Jonathan Bryan told Westminster magistrates on Thursday.

After waking up his then ex, the pair began to row.

Mr Bryan said: ‘The defendant arrived at 9.30pm. He was very drunk. He approached the complainant who was asleep.

‘He said he had brought her dinner. She said she was not hungry. His response was to push her in the chest. It did not hurt her, and she tried to walk away.

‘He picked up a chicken and it hit her on the dressing gown, the kitchen and TV. He was very angry, clenching his fists.’

At a previous hearing, in May, Prosecutor Aimee Emby said: ‘The defendant took hold of the complainant by her arms and squeezed them tightly, stopping her getting into the kitchen.
