A woman who was abused by Max Clifford in the 1970s has told ITV News she hopes he will show remorse for his crimes following his conviction and sentencing.
She said Clifford had to first see his victims as human beings to finally admit his guilt - but doubted he would.
Max Clifford's conviction has led to more complaints about the celebrity publicist, the former detective TV presenter who triggered the police investigation into Clifford has said.
Mark Williams-Thomas, who was first contacted by a victim, described Clifford as a "narcissistic, controlling individual, a predator" who is "now behind bars as a convicted child sex offender".
He told BBC Radio 4's PM programme: "I can tell you as a direct result of the prosecution having a guilty verdict that I am now aware of other people who have come to me and those individuals are being spoken to and passed on to the police."
Mr Williams-Thomas also made the documentary exposing Jimmy Savile.
Max Clifford is an unrepentant sadist who, driven by sex and money, "delighted in humiliating his victims", former Tory minister David Mellor has told ITV News.
Mellor was forced to resign in 1992 after Clifford took details of the politician's affair with actress Antonia de Sancha to the tabloids, including spicing up the story with lies.
Responding to Clifford's jailing, Mellor said the celebrity publicist "thought he was above retribution" and admitted that he took a "little bit of pleasure" at seeing him convicted.
"He came out this morning and waved two fingers at the judge ... and the judge waved two even bigger fingers back," Mellor added.
The custody image of Max Clifford has been released by the Metropolitan Police following his sentencing to eight years in prison for a string of indecent assaults.
Max Clifford's solicitor has said the disgraced celebrity publicist is "seriously" considering an appeal against his eight-year sentence as well as an appeal against his conviction.
The comment from Clifford's legal camp came as one legal expect expressed his surprise at the length of the sentence handed down and suggested it was "significantly" likely that an appeal could succeed.
Simon McKay, a criminal human rights lawyer at McKay Law, said he was "very surprised" at the length of the sentence, because it "creates the opportunity for the sentence to be appealed", adding: "And I don't think that's good for the victims."
Judge Anthony Leonard condemned Max Clifford for causing more trauma for his victims with his "contemptuous" behaviour during his trial, including attempts to "trivialise" accusations against him by mimicking a reporter outside court.
The judge referred directly to Clifford's appearance behind Sky News reporter Tom Parmenter as he recorded a summary of the latest evidence during the trial at Southwark Crown Court.
"I find your behaviour to be quite extraordinary and a further indication that you show no remorse," the judge said before sentencing Clifford to eight years for the historic indecent assaults.
"(The) additional element of trauma caused by your contemptuous attitude is something that I shall take into account in sentence," he added.
"I can only hope that these proceedings will provide all your victims with some sort of closure."
The eight-year jail term handed to Max Clifford reflects the impact his crimes have had on his young women victims, a spokesperson for charity Victim Support has said.
Adam Pemberton, the charity's assistant chief executive, said it was the "compelling testimony" of the abused women - described as "liars" and "fantasists" by Clifford in court - that convicted him.
He paid tribute to the women for "finding the strength" to give evidence against the powerful PR man.
The Director of Public Prosecutions has welcomed the conviction and sentencing of Max Clifford for historic indecent assaults, saying he has "rightly been held to account", and praised his victims for reporting the abuses.
“The prosecution was built with evidence demonstrating a pattern of behaviour where unconnected victims told of strikingly similar experiences over a number of years," Alison Saunders said.
"I would like to thank all the victims for coming forward and giving evidence in difficult circumstances."
She urged other victims to report their claims of abuse, "no matter who is alleged to have carried out the abuse or when".
Max Clifford has been "unmasked as a ruthless and manipulative sex offender who preyed for decades on children and young women", the director of children's charity the NSPCC has said.
Responding to the eight-year sentence handed down to the shamed celebrity publicist at Southwark Crown Court, Mr Watt said:
