Britain's Got Talent
A man has been jailed after calling police to complain Britain's Got Talent star Ant McPartlin was still on TV after his drink driving conviction.
David Kates-Lowick, of Oldford Rise, Welshpool, admitted breaching an order by contacting Dyfed-Powys Police when it was not a genuine police matter.
Newcastle-born Mr McPartlin, pictured on the left below, went into rehab after a drink driving conviction in 2018.
Kates-Lowick, 57, who was subject to a suspended sentence, was jailed for 19 weeks at Llandudno Magistrates' Court.
James Neary, prosecuting, said four calls were made to the police force in three days, during which Kates-Lowick told call handlers he was frustrated Mr McPartlin could still drive and be on TV when others would have lost their job.
The court heard Kates-Lowick has "significant mental health issues".

Sirine Jahangir, who lost her sight at the age of 10, impressed the celebrity judges at her audition.
Britain's Got Talent contestant Beth Porch has said she feels like part of a musical "movement" against coronavirus after her charity single went to number four in the charts.
The 25-year-old nurse, who recently recovered from Covid-19, earned a standing ovation from the judges during Saturday's episode after performing You Taught Me What Love Is, an original song inspired by her job at a children's hospital.
Any funds raised by the song will be donated to NHS frontline workers fighting the pandemic.
Ms Porch, who is originally from Dawlish in Devon but lives in London, said: "It doesn't feel real. It wasn't even necessarily a dream of mine to be a top 10 artist because I didn't even think it was possible, if I am honest."
Ms Porch, who qualified two-and-a-half years ago as a nurse, said she uses her music to uplift children who are terminally ill.
"A lot of them will record me singing to their children and they can watch that over and over again.
"That brings them great comfort in times of serious distress. That's when the music is most important."
