Joe Simpson has pleaded not guilty to driving under the influence.

The 54-year-old - the father of Jessica Simpson and Ashlee Simpson - was arrested in Los Angeles in August and was later charged with two misdemeanour counts of DUI.

However, Simpson has now pleaded not guilty to the offences, TMZ reports.

Simpson, who entered his plea in Los Angeles, was previously told to refrain from drinking alcohol by a judge.

He faces a year in jail if convicted on both counts, although he is unlikely to spend time in prison as it would be his first offence.

Simpson is due to return to court next month.
