The Leith model, who denied all the charges, was also said to have made racially offensive remarks at Kacper Sinicki. But the case against her was deserted during a short hearing at the city’s sheriff court yesterday.

Miss Bowers started dating Hearts footballer Andy Driver in 2008, became Miss Scotland runner-up in 2009 and was third in the competition the following year.

It is not known whether the couple are still an item.
