CELEBRITY PR MAN Richard Hillgrove is to challenge his conviction for tax evasion after filing at Bristol Crown Court.

Hillgrove (pictured) was last month found guilty of failing to pay £93,000 in VAT and NICs over a 12-month period after a three-week trial.

It is likely to be weeks, or even months, before he will learn whether he has leave to appeal.

The grounds for the appeal are yet to be made public, but Hillgrove has always maintained his innocence and has claimed he was set up.

Last month, Hillgrove "retaliated" against his conviction - for which he is yet to be sentenced - by performing the Moari Haka war dance at Glastonbury Tor.

Hillgrove has acted for several celebrity clients, including Trudie Styler and Dragon's Den's James Caan.
