'Collins' girlfriend said 'dump me''.

TELEVISION star Justin Lee Collins' ex-girlfriend repeatedly told him to dump her, his trial for domestic and emotional abuse heard yesterday.

The 38-year-old said Anna Larke, whom he is accused of harassing, frequently phoned him with the "mantra": "There are things you don't know about me, there are things you don't know about me, there are things you don't know about, you need to dump me, you need to dump me."

Collins is alleged to have made Ms Larke, a recovering alcoholic, write down all her previous sexual encounters regardless of how graphic.

Yesterday, the star, who shot to fame with Channel 4's The Friday Night Project, said making the sex list was her idea as cathartic, therapeutic and to "unburden herself".

Collins denies all charges against him, and the trial at St Albans Crown Court continues.
