Darren Jolly and estranged wife Deanne are both facing serious criminal charges in the fallout of their messy break-up.

The 38-year-old former Block star was scheduled to appear before the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Monday where he faces multiple charges.

The matter was expected to be adjourned off along with thousands of other criminal hearings as Melbourne’s struggling court system continues to fight its way through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Daily Mail Australia can also reveal Deanne faces near identical charges to her ex, with a hearing scheduled to take place at Ringwood Magistrates’ Court on Thursday.
