Mia Boardman, a former star of popular MTV show ,Teen Mom UK, has revealed that her jealous ex pinned her to the floor and tried to strangle her after she refused to have sex with him.
She feared for her life as Christopher Brooks, a window cleaner, gripped her neck.
He squeezed so hard he left finger imprints and severe bruising, a court heard.
He and Ms Boardman, 24, of Southampton, had split at the time of the attack, but he was angry that she was dating another .
He grabbed her phone and refused to give it back unless she slept with him, attacking her when she said no.
Ms Boardman said: “I feared for my life when he was squeezing my throat…..I didn’t think I would see my daughter again.”
At Maidstone crown court, judge Julian Smith told Brooks, of Caterham, Surrey: “There can be few things more frightening than being choked while helpless and pinned to the floor.
“She thought you would kill her.”
Brooks has been jailed for 12 months.
