A WANNABE rapper who stalked a Miss England contestant and vowed to dedicate a Britain’s Got Talent Audition song to her has been caged.
Sick Jonathan Deal, 39, bombarded beauty queen Samantha Bumford, 25, with messages after “falling in love” with her over Facebook.

He was caged for 23 weeks after the distraught model complained to cops when he stalked her 200 miles to the Miss England finals – and claimed to be her boyfriend.
After breaking past security and trying to kiss her on stage, he told her she “only did well because the judges thought you were my girlfriend”.
Poole Magistrates Court heard how Jonathan – who raps under the stage name JAYD – promised to audition for BGT with a song “dedicated to his love for her”.
The fiend was locked up after it emerged he had nine previous offences relating to harassment and stalking.
Samantha said: “I’m constantly on edge and have been placed on medication because of this experience.
I’m not sleeping and am constantly looking over my shoulder. It has completely ruined my life.Samantha Bumford
“For the first time since starting, I don’t want to do modelling.
“I’m not sleeping and am constantly looking over my shoulder. It has completely ruined my life.”
Jason Spellman, prosecuting, said: “On September 4 she was competing at a Miss England event in Nottingham when she came in the top 20.
“As she left the stage he grabbed her and the arms and body and tried to kiss her on the lips.”She shouted for him to get off and had to be forceful.”
Dorset Police DC Neil Causebrook added: “Jonathan Deal became obsessed and fixated with Samantha Bumford and his behaviour escalated over a very short period of time.

“He stalked and harassed her and caused her a great deal of concern and distress.
“I hope the sentence handed out by the court today will reassure Samantha that she can go about her life without fear of being harassed by Deal again.
“If he breaches the restraining order he will find himself back before the court.”
