A man has admitted "meowing" through the letterbox of Hollywood star Keira Knightley in a stalking campaign.

Mark Revill, 49, pleaded guilty to stalking the actress at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court on Monday, the Daily Mirror reported.

The court heard Revill was chased away from the north London home by Keira's husband, musician James Righton.

Revill, from Hackney, east London, pleaded guilty to stalking the British actress between August 1 and October 22.

Prosecuting, Simma Khan said Revill's behaviour had made the Pirates Of The Caribbean star feel "unsafe" after continuing the stalking campaign despite being warned to stay away from the home by lawyers.

She said: "Once the conduct made her become uncomfortable she felt unsafe.

"He lifted up the letterbox and started making 'meowing' sounds."
