The court heard that in November last year McBride appeared at one of McElderry's concerts and sat on the front row.

McElderry said:

"I started the second last show and the same person who had been to my house was sitting on the front row and was staring at me. I was really scared.

I started the second last show and the same person who had been to my house was sitting on the front row and was staring at me. I was really scared.

McElderry's mother Eileen Joyce said she felt anxious and bewildered when McBride appeared on her doorstep.

"I was moving some furniture to a new house and a guy came and knocked on the door and asked where Joe was.

I asked who he was and he said that was irrelevant.

He said Joe was a liar and he had his best friend lying for him.

I felt really anxious and I asked him to move off the doorstep. I felt nervous and bewildered."
