- English journalist and radio presenter
A driver found guilty of threatening and abusing BBC presenter Jeremy Vine while he was cycling has lost her appeal against her conviction.
The 22-year-old, who was appearing at Isleworth Crown Court, threatened to knock out the presenter and made a gun sign at him as she screamed insults on August 26 last year.
It took place as he cycled to BBC offices near Oxford Circus from his home in Chiswick, west London.
He was cycling in the middle of Hornton Street in Kensington, west London, which had parked cars on either side, on August 26, but stopped after being honked at by the driver of a black Vauxhall Corsa behind him.
In the video clip, single mum Pearson can be heard swearing at Vine, who tries to explain why he was riding down the centre of the narrow street, before she kicks and pushes the cyclist and his bike.
Pearson, from Vauxhall, south London, was convicted on February 1 of driving an unlicensed vehicle, driving without reasonable consideration for other road users and using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour.
At that hearing, Pearson, who has a number of previous convictions and was subject to a suspended sentence when the latest offence was committed, was warned she may face prison.
