Brady, 31, of Cross Bedford Street, Sheffield, was jailed for four months.

Judge Jeremy Richardson QC told Brady his attacks on Mr Wootton had “everything to do with your craving for celebrity status and your irritation that the press were not in the least interested in your somewhat uninteresting life.”

At Sheffield Crown Court, the judge said Brady’s claims Mr Wootton was in some way responsible for Miss Flack’s death were “wholly irrational”.

He pointed out the former executive editor of The Sun was a friend of the Love Island presenter who died in 2020.

Earlier this week, Brady admitted harassment at a hearing.

Judge Richardson said he would be released in the “very near future”, given the time the defendant served on remand.

He imposed a 10-year restraining order banning Brady from contacting Mr Wootton, posting anything about him online, or going within 200 yards of his home or workplace.

Judge Richardson blasted the social media posts and messages about Mr Wootton as “utterly outrageous”.

He issued Brady a stark warning he could face more prison time for breaching the restraining order.

In a statement read to the court, Mr Wootton – who watched the proceedings by video link – said he “adored” the “late, great Caroline Flack”.

He added: “I only ever wrote stories about Caroline that she wanted to be published.”

The journalist added: “She knew I had her back.”

Mr Wootton said the late presenter called him after ending her relationship with The Apprentice star.

The broadcaster said Brady had his phone number following a trip to an O2 concert arranged by Miss Flack so he could meet the defendant because she knew Mr Wootton had reservations about their relationship.
