Sexual assault trial of Hey Dad star may begin on Monday

THE sexual assault trial against former Hey Dad! star Robert Hughes could begin as early as next Monday.

The 64-year-old pleaded not-guilty earlier this month to 11 charges relating to the alleged sexual assault of five girls between the 80s and 90s.

Mr Hughes, who played Martin Kelly in the popular family series, was extradited to Australia from the UK last year.

He has maintained his innocence and regularly fronted court in the company of his wife.

Jury selection is expected to begin on Monday at Sydney's Downing District Court.
