He said: “There is clear evidence that he has delusional tendencies.

“In my judgment I accept that Mrs Lampard is truthful and accurate.

“I accept that she received tweets from Christ_of_King in 2015 and that these included some very nasty remarks.”

The judge said he would consider Lampard’s assessment of the tweets – which she described as “dark” – an understatement.

King will be sentenced at Isleworth Crown Court on Friday afternoon.

Pregnant Christine is currently standing in for Lorraine on her ITV morning show.
