Justin Lee Collins's ex 'appalled' by length of his sentence


Justin Lee Collins's ex-girlfriend has told BBC Radio 5 live that she is "appalled" by the sentence he received after being convicted of harassing her.

The TV presenter was given 140 hours of unpaid community work and, in a statement, said: "I deeply regret the distress and anguish I have caused by my behaviour in what was a very troubled and difficult relationship with Anna Larke.... I have decided not to proceed with an appeal against my conviction."

Speaking to Victoria Derbyshire, Anna Larke said she would have liked the sentence to be longer and shared a recording she made that was played out in court.
