Hassini stood in the dock, wearing grey tracksuit bottoms and a white T-shirt, speaking only to confirm his name, as members of his family looked on from the public gallery.
He pleaded not guilty to a total of three charges, including conspiracy to supply a Class A drug, cocaine, possession of cocaine with intent to supply and possession of criminal property, a quantity of cash.
His co-defendant, 23-year-old Gary Bear, who appeared in the dock wearing a grey tracksuit, admitted conspiracy to supply a Class A drug but denied possessing criminal property.
Judge Sandy Canavan remanded them in custody ahead of a three to four-day trial on November 22.
Hassini, of Brentwood, Essex, and Bear, from Hornchurch, east London, are next due to appear in court for a pre-trial review hearing on October 20.
They were arrested on April 16 in the Emerson Park area of Havering, east London, according to an earlier Metropolitan Police statement.
A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police confirmed at the time: ‘Two men appeared in custody at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court on Monday, 19 April, charged in connection with the supply of Class A drugs.
‘Michael Hassini, 26, was charged with conspiracy to acquire, use or possess criminal property, being concerned in supply of cocaine and possession with intent to supply cocaine.’
After making a number of appearances on Towie from 2015, Hassini was dropped for good in 2018.
His last Instagram post was shared on April 11 and saw him sitting in a garden surrounded by weights, with the caption celebrating the reopening of gyms in England.
