Vine replies: "I've got to be within a car's width of the parked cars", at which point she begins kicking out at him and ordering him to move his bicycle. Vine said he felt in danger during the attack in Kensington. She has been jailed as a result of already being on a suspended sentence.

Jeremy Vine arriving at Isleworth crown court on Tuesday.

After continuing to threaten him, she returns to her vehicle and drives off quickly, just missing another parked auto.

Pearson, of Vauxhall, south London, was also ordered to pay a victims surcharge of £130 but no order was made for the costs of the appeal.

Mum-of-one Pearson broke down in tears as she was jailed for nine-months, of which she will serve at least half behind bars, after losing her appeal. I felt I was in danger.

In mitigation the court heard since that offence she had become a mother and in the past had suffered domestic abuse.

Vine was cycling on August 26 past year in the middle of Hornton Street in Kensington, west London, which had parked cars on either side, but stopped after being honked at by the driver of a black Vauxhall Corsa behind him.

The incident was filmed by a camera attached to Jeremy Vine's cycle helmet and received a substantial number of views when posted online.

Pearson denied making a gun shape with her hand, saying she stuck her middle finger up at him and had felt threatened when he cycled up to the passenger window of her vehicle. He claimed that her actions made him fear for his safety.

At the time of her original conviction on 1 February, Crown Prosecution Service lawyer Kunal Dave said: "Pearson's behaviour was unprovoked and completely unacceptable". Her legal challenge was dismissed today.

The 22-year-old was convicted in February of using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour.

Detective Inspector Driss Hayoukane, from Notting Hill CID, said,"Road rage incidents like this are completely unacceptable. I hope this sentence serves as a warning and important reminder that all road users should be respected and those that make violent threats will be found and brought before the courts".
