    John Galliano is to be sentenced tomorrow at a Paris court.

    The former Dior designer, who was charged with making public insults based on origin, religious affiliation, race or ethnicity earlier this year, will not be in court to hear the verdict.

    Mr Galliano, who blamed shouting at a man and woman in a fashionable Paris bar on a cocktail of alcohol, valium and sleeping pills, could face six months in jail. He could also be fined up to £21,000 if convicted.

    The 50-year-old's conduct included the incident at the bar and another, caught on video, in which he shouted that he loved Hitler and told a group that they should be "gassed".

    In court in June he said he had no memory of what had landed him there.

    "I don't remember," he said. "I don't remember any insults and how the situation degenerated. I don't remember it lasted 45 minutes."
