Myleene Klass was reportedly left tearful after a cab driver ‘spat on’ her on the way to work at Global radio.

The former Hear’Say star, 43, called police to say she had been assaulted, according to The Sun, with the incident happening half an hour before she was due to start her Smooth Radio show on Friday.

The incident is claimed to have occurred after Myleene and the driver had a disagreement over where the cab was to stop and the driver allegedly spat on Myleene before she left the vehicle in tears and he sped off.

Photographers waiting outside the building asked the mother of three whether she was alright after she was left flustered by the vile incident.

A source claimed to The Sun: ‘Myleene was shocked that he spat on her. She panicked and felt trapped, worried that she wouldn’t be able to get out.

‘She was really shaken by the incident and wanted to get out of the car as quickly as possible when the driver turned nasty. She was relieved it happened in a public place.’

Despite the horrible incident, Myleene went on to present her two-hour show on the station, with the source adding she was ‘grateful’ the photographers were there to witness what happened and check on her.

It is also thought that the incident was caught on CCTV from the buildings nearby.

The Met Police said in a statement: ‘Police are investigating an allegation of assault. The complainant, a 43-year-old woman, was allegedly spat at as she left a private hire vehicle. There have been no arrests and enquiries continue.’

Myleene, who has daughters Ava, 13, and Hero, nine, with ex-husband Graham Quinn and son Apollo, one, with fiancé Simon Motson, has yet to speak out about what happened publicly.

Metro.co.uk has reached out to Myleene’s reps for comment.
