A Linslade hunk dubbed ‘Britain’s vainest man’ appeared for sentencing at Hammersmith Magistrates Court last week afer harassing his ex-girlfriend.

Fitness model Matt Dunford, 30, bombarded Brazilian Amanda Branco with texts and emails and called her up to 30 times a day after their six-month relationship ended.

He went on to Facebook to repeat false allegations that Ms Branco was a call girl and linked it to her employer’s page.

Dunford had also attempted to extort £5,000 from his ex, who once worked as a stripper. When she refused to pay, he then mocked up an escort website profile and sent it to her mother and sister.

Dunford, of Soulbury Road, appeared in court on March 12 and was remanded on bail for a pre-sentencing report. He will next appear in court on April 2 for sentencing.

The former Cedars student appeared in the LBO in February 2013 after appearing on ITV1 dating gameshow Take Me Out.
