An Ayrshire woman who starred in a controversial BBC reality show is being hunted by cops after failing to appear in court.

Dayna McLaughlan faces charges of sexually assaulting men in Cumnock, causing fear and alarm as well as exposing her breasts.

She previously pleaded not guilty to six charges including threatening abusive behaviour, sexual assault, and resisting arrest.

The 32-year-old, who starred in the 2010 BBC documentary series The Scheme, is accused of causing fear and alarm after shouting and swearing at a male and female at Wylie Crescent.

It’s alleged she then removed her jacket, exposing her bare breasts while gesticulating in an aggressive manner on September 8 last year.

It is alleged she then shouted and swore while acting in an aggressive manner on September 16 last year in Meacher Court and en route to Kilmarnock police office, repeatedly spitting in a police vehicle.

The charges state this was while she was subject to an undertaking to appear in the dock on October 30, 2023.

It is further alleged she resisted, obstructed or hindered two officers struggling violently with them on October 3.

It’s alleged Ms McLaughlin shouted swore and made offensive remarks to the police, refusing requests to leave the address in Wylie Crescent when requested to.

She faces a further charge of allegedly touching a man's leg before pushing him on a bed oin Wylie Crescent on October 4.

It’s claimed she then jumped on top of him and attempted to kiss him.

She denies a further charge of touching a a second man’s privates under his clothing.

Ms McLaughlan pleaded not guilty to all the charges against her when the case called at Ayr Sheriff Court on Wednesday, January 3.

Bail was continued for the accused, who was represented by defence solicitor Sandy Currie.

The Wylie Crescent resident was due to return to Ayr Sheriff Court on March 8, but she was not present, and Mr Currie said he had no explanation for her absence.

The presiding sheriff granted a Crown motion for a warrant to apprehend the accused.

All accused persons are considered not guilty, unless they later admit to or are found to be guilty.
