Matthew Wright's stalker, 54, has received a restraining order after mocking the TV host's wife for stillbirth and threatening to catch her child.
Michelle Ranicar, 54, was ordered to pursue the presenter and his wife, Amelia, at Wood Green Crown Court.
In October, the troubled couple shared how they were ridiculed for stillbirth when Amelia was pregnant with their daughter Cassady, now 21 months old, and said the "hysterical" Ranicar even threatened to "snatch" her child.
Michelle Ranicar of Uxbridge admitted following Matthew Wright and his wife Amelia between November 2017 and May 2018. Once she even threatened to "snap" her child
Ranicar, 54, from Uxbridge admitted counting once between November and May 2018 at Wood Green Crown Court on Tuesday October 20 to cause serious concern or distress.
She tracked the host and his wife Amelia, who had daughter Cassady in January 2019, including showing up at their home in Primrose Hill, north London.
A judge heard that Ranicar had learning difficulties and was diagnosed with "mild autism spectrum disorder," as reported by Spiegel.
The 53-year-old, who can be seen regularly for The Wright Stuff, described herself as a "super fan" in an interview in 2016.
After Ranicar's confession of guilt in October, Matthew Wright's wife, Amelia, said the ordeal had "cast a long shadow, we are still shaken by the whole thing".
After Ranicar pleaded guilty in October, the couple announced that she had told a pregnant Amelia, “Women Your age is more likely to have stillbirth ”after the couple struggled to father their daughter.
Ranicar also turned upstairs in her house yelling through the mailbox that she wanted her baby.
"It was the most horrific time we've ever been through, scary and scary," Amelia said to Lorraine.
Matthew stated that he first met Ranicar when she was a regular member of the studio audience on his previous show, The Wright Stuff.
& # 39; It built up over time when the lady was in the audience of my TV show. I was kind to everyone in the audience, but I didn't know she was starting to develop ideas that we were having a relationship. & # 39;
"Then a newspaper did an interview with her and that was the first time and she said something like," I don't like the way our relationship is going "and I thought," I've never had a relationship with you! " he explained.
She was later banned from his TV show but showed up at a charity auction the star hosted and confronted a then heavily pregnant Amelia who left her in tears.
Amelia explained, "A very glamorous woman came up to me and said," I need to talk to Matthew, I don't like how our relationship ended. "Then the penny fell, it was the woman in the article."
"Then she came out, she said to me, I was heavily pregnant," Women your age are more likely to have a stillbirth. "And I was just shocked to the core."
Matthew added, “I was on stage and hadn't clocked it. Then I ran off the stage, grabbed Amelia and went home another way so she wouldn't find us, but she had our address and showed up a few days later. & # 39;
