A witness in JLS star Oritse Williams’ rape trial has recalled ‘freaking out’ and having a panic attack during the alleged incident.

Williams, 32, is attending court this week to stand accused of raping one woman at a Wolverhampton hotel on 2 December 2016 following a nightclub appearance.

On Thursday morning, day three of the trial, a friend of the rape accuser stepped into the witness box with their account of what allegedly took place in a room at the Ramada Hotel.

The witness, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told the jury that she went ‘blank’ after taking Snapchat videos with Williams and the group. She claims to have then woken up on the hotel room floor surrounded by paramedics.

Recalling what her friend told her once she came round from the panic attack, the woman said: ‘She told me we came back to the hotel and I started freaking out and started to have a panic attack. She told me she’d gone back to get her belongings.’

The witness then said that she ‘hadn’t realised how serious [the incident] was, what had happened to her [her friend accusing Williams of rape].’

After being told what is said to have happened to her friend, the witness reportedly said repeatedly: ‘It’s not OK.’

Another woman who was with the group also took to the witness stand on day three of the trial.

The friend claimed Williams made a comment about her ‘being like a Victoria’s Secret model’, before he described himself as a practicing Buddhist.

She added of her friend making the rape allegation: ‘She was with Williams and I don’t think he’d let her go.’

The woman recalls how she ‘felt very sick’ after getting into a taxi and vomited in her hands and out of the window.

Earlier this week, Williams’ defence lawyer claimed the former popstar had consensual sex with the woman and only stopped out of ‘embarrassment’ because he could no longer perform.

The five-day trial is expected to conclude on Monday.
