One of them referred to rape and the actress, 38, was horrified when he turned up at her home on December 17 last year and repeatedly rang her doorbell.

A judge earlier today said Penrose has “a mental illness which is treatment resistant and there is a high risk of further offending and a high risk of harm”.

Hy het bygevoeg: “The suggestion is that the only way of dealing with this is a custodial sentence.”

Sentencing was adjourned until Friday but Judge David Aaronberg at London’s Wood Green crown hof warned he faced a minimum of 30 maande.

Penrose, who has admitted stalking and two breaches of a stalking protection order, could also be deported at some point after entering the UK illegally.

Prosecutor Varinder Hayre described some of the emails sent as “quite graphic”.

Sy het gese: “He talked about the victim Ms Foy being raped and wanted her to be his girlfriend.

“Ms Foy was terrified as she did not know what his intention was. She was in fear for her and her daughter’s lives.”

Sy now suffers sleepless nights and has begged colleagues not to tag her in online pics in case he tracks her movements.
