A TROUBLED reality TV star has been handed a two year community order and told to complete 250 hours of unpaid work after admitting drugs and theft charges.

Heavily-tattooed Marco Pierre White Jnr appeared before Swindon magistrates on Wednesday morning.

He had previously pleaded guilty to possession of heroin at a London branch of Costa Coffee, possession of 204 Oxycodone tablets, threatening a maid at his celebrity chef dad’s Wiltshire hotel, failing to pay a £30 taxi fare to the hotel and failing to pay a £34.60 food bill at Northey Arms, Box.

The former Big Brother star, who is the son of chef Marco Pierre White, was ordered to complete up to 20 rehabilitation activity days. The sessions will enable him to do probation service courses.

White, 24, who lives at his dad’s Rudloe Hall Hotel near Corsham, has a troubled history with drugs. In May, when he was found with 12 wraps of heroin at Costa Coffee in Earl's Court, he was said to have been addicted to the class A drug and spending between £50 and £60 on his habit.
