Love Island’s Jack Fincham has pleaded not guilty to two drug driving charges in court.
The 29 year old reality star claimed it took five months to test his blood sample, as he appeared at Sevenoaks Magistrates Court on Monday.
Jack denied the charges, which came after he was topped in January while out driven his £30,000 Mercedes.
Jack was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs, and he was later charged with two counts of drug driving offences.
As he arrived at the court with his stepdad Fraser McManus, Jack could be seen in a black patterned shirt and khaki trousers.

He kept his hands in his pockets and smiled at the cameras as he walked past.
Jack only spoke in court in order to give his name, date of birth and enter his two not guilty pleas.
Jack’s solicitor told the court that he hadn’t taken cocaine, and that the test results may have been invalid because it took nearly five months to carry out the forensic analysis.
"He denies consuming any cocaine. There's not a great deal more I can say at this stage,” Connor Johnstone, Jack’s solicitor, said.
Jack’s trial has been set for December 9 at Maidstone Magistrates Court, where Jack will stand before a district judge.
The Love Island star has been released on unconditional bail, but he was warned that if he didn’t turn up to his next hearing he’d be fined or jailed.

Chair of the bench Louise Bryant said: “"Your trial has been listed for December 9, you must be at the court at 9.15am for a 10am start.
"You are released on unconditional bail, but you must come back , if you don't, that's a separate offence which could lead to fines or imprisonment."
Jack became famous while on Love Island, and he won with Dani Dyer by his side.
The pair later split after winning the £50,000 prize money and Jack went on to welcome a child with his ex Casey Ranger.
Before his stint on Love Island, Jack worked as a pen salesman but he quit his job after finding fame on the hit show.
