O'Keefe was refused bail and appeared at Waverley Local Court today.

The court heard he returned a positive drug test, however his lawyer argued the swab was contaminated.

He was then granted bail. 

The former Deal or No Deal game show host was initially arrested in January and charged with assaulting and choking a woman.

In February he pleaded guilty to a separate charge of drug possession.

He was granted bail by the New South Wales Supreme Court, and released from Silverwater jail, with strict conditions in May.

One condition was that he checked into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation clinic and stayed there for six months.

Other bail conditions included not taking any alcohol or drugs, that were not prescribed by a doctor.

O'Keefe was a host at Channel Seven for 17 years and his contract with the network was not re-signed in 2021.

He was also an ambassador for White Ribbon, a charity that works to combat violence against women.
