So Mel - who currently lives in Sydney as she films the Australian version of 'The X Factor' - took him to court, where a judge gave her a temporary restraining order.

The order will remain until 22 November when the case returns to court.

Lawyers for Jamie - Australia's self-styled Prince of Paparazzi - agreed he would not "loiter" within 50 metres of Mel and not contact her.

Roland Day said his client agreed to the orders on the understanding "that he is still able to be a photographer and do his job".

The incident is said to have occurred while Mel and her husband Stephen Belafonte were relaxing on their yacht when Jamie was spotted hiding behind a rock.

As the couple moved to different beaches, it is claimed the photographer followed them until they decided to moor their boat at Vaucluse, Eastern Suburbs where they live.
