Jack Tweed, 21, of Buckhurst Hill, Essex, denied the offence but was found guilty of attacking Stephen Wilkins in Epping, Essex, last May following a trial at Epping Magistrates' Court.

Sentencing has been adjourned until March 26 so reports can be prepared on Tweed's background but he was warned a custodial sentence would be considered.

Goody's spokesman Max Clifford said she would be upset when she heard the news from court.
