Celebrity Big Brother winner Chantelle Houghton and ex Alex Reid were today warned by a judge over their behaviour, as the reality star failed in a bid to commit her former partner to prison.

The court heard the clip was posted on Twitter, Instagram and a website, which infringed an order and saw it immediately taken down.

But the application was today dismissed by Justice Sir Anthony Hayden due to a technical flaw in the way the application was made.

Mr Reid, the ex of model Katie Price, and represented at the hearing by Andrew Burr, appeared wearing a blue suit and grey tie at the Queen's Building of the High Court, where an application was made for Miss Houghton to appear behind a screen.

Instead, she appeared on a TV screen, sporting poker straight hair, wearing a military style jacket and white blouse, before moving out of view, to be heard but not seen by the court.

Brendan Roche, mainbandar representing Miss Houghton, said: 'We are trying to stop inaccurate and abusive messages being sent out into the public which undermine my client.

'There are, in particular, many messages being published on Twitter, on Instagram, on the website which make allegations which were dismissed.'

Mr Justice Hayden ordered for the video not to be shared again and for it be destroyed. 

When asked by the judge not to put the video in the public domain, Mr Burr confirmed, on behalf of Mr Reid, 'without question'.
