Veteran drummer Ginger Baker has declared he is willing to drop his trousers in court to prove he never got jiggy with a woman accused of defrauding him of £30,000, the Telegraph reports.

Baker, 69, now lives in South Africa, where he befriended Lindiwe Noko at the bank where she worked as a clerk. He called in cops when £30k went awol from his account, and Noko subsequently claimed she and the former Cream sticksman were lovers and he gave her the cash as a gift.

Not so, insists Baker, who is now prepared to whip off his strides to prove the point. He explained: "I've a scar that only a woman who had a thing with me would know. It's there and she doesn't know it's there."

The case is due to be heard in January. Watch this space for a ginger nuts update. ®
