A lothario branded ''Britain's biggest player'' has been jailed for brutalising a woman during a string of jealousy fuelled rages.

Daniel Wagster, 31, who claims to have bedded 2,500 women in a decade repeatedly beat and bit the woman in a series of violent arguments.

One of the arguments was over her fling with soccer star Gerard Pique - now dating singer Shakira - during a New Year trip to Amsterdam.

In one incident the victim was woken up by Wagster to see him standing over her and moving his finger across his neck saying: ''I would love to slit your throat, if I did I would only get 15 years."

And in a menacing phone call personal trainer Wagster told her: ''I don't care if you call police. If they catch up with me they will catch up with you. Right you watch, watch.''

The woman, who asked not to be named, said the incidents have been traumatic and left her "scared" of Wagster.

She said she has been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Wagster has been jailed for four years but the woman already fears for the day he leaves prison.

Daniel Wagster claims to have bedded 2,500 women

In a statement the woman told police: "It has been traumatic for me to have to relive all these incidents and I am emotionally exhausted and scared of this man.

"I had to lie to my family and friends about the injuries and no one knows what happened in Amsterdam. I am embarrassed and feel stupid for staying with him.

''I am l taking anti-depressants and on two occasions I tried to take my own life because of how he makes me feel.

"I felt I physically and mentally could not do it anymore.

"At the time of the assaults I was scared, depressed and anxious. I had financial problems having to provide for him and everything I tried to do was to make him feel happy and safe.

"It is difficult to describe how I have felt and every day I face new battles. I have had severe depression, counselling, medication and have diagnosed PTSD.

"I have doctors visit me every three or four days and fear leaving the house. I fear for the day he leaves prison and I am scared he will come back.

"I have spent days in bed when I could not bring myself to go outside. I have been the target of abuse and cyber-bullying on his Instagram - his new partner writes the posts on his behalf. "

Wagster had a string of previous convictions

The woman added: "I had to go to hospital for my broken finger and am awaiting surgery. Doctors told me I will have permanent disfigurement to my hand which will be a reminder of the times I have suffered.

"[I] hope one day I can put what has happened at the back of my mind but I know I will never, ever forget it and I know I will never be the same person again."

The woman said she lives in fear and fears seeing him in public.

She said she has suffered from panic attacks and nightmares and has to take medication "just to get through the day".

The woman also said her life would never be the same.

"He may feel remorse but no doubt he will do it again to someone else," she said.

"No one will get the best of me ever again. I am extremely grateful to be alive, and hopefully after today I can begin to rebuild my life."

Wagster, of Hale, near Altrincham pleaded guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily harm

At Manchester Crown Court, Wagster, of Hale, near Altrincham who has string convictions for violence against other ex-girlfriends pleaded guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

The court heard the pair had been in a relationship since February last year after being friends for five years.

Last August he moved in with her but falsely claimed she was cheating on him.

The first assault occurred on his birthday when Wagster grabbed her by the hair, bit her nose, then pinned her against a wall at home.

She stood by him but after a night out at a club they rowed again back home and he pinned her down on a sofa and bit her on the face three times.

The woman threw Wagster out but refused to make a complaint to police due to his claims he had schizophrenia.

However they later arranged to meet up again after he apologised and promised to change.

Mark Kellet prosecuting said: "They left for Amsterdam on 30 December and that day was fine. On New Years Eve they had both been drinking and were in a club where a Shakira song had been playing.

''She made a comment but he became angry because she had been in a relationship with a man who had gone on to marry Shakira. This was a known joke between the victim and her friends.

"The defendant said it was disrespectful and grabbed her by the neck and bit her in the face near her right eye. They then went back to their hotel room together.

"On their way back he tried to jump out of the taxi and when they got to their hotel room the victim asked security staff not to allow the defendant into their room. He then went to the room with hotel staff.

"She opened the door and the defendant rushed inside, struck her to her face and she fell onto the bed.

"The defendant pinned his arms down on her left middle finger and was taken to police custody.

"She collected the defendant from custody and they returned to the UK. The victim went to Wythenshawe A&E and it was found her finger was fractured in two places. It was strapped. This incident happened outside the jurisdiction but is important background in this case.

"There were no further issues until 12 January 2020 when the victim was woken up by the defendant telling her 'I would love to slit your throat, if I did I would only get 15 years.'

"He was moving his finger across his neck. The victim helped him to calm down and gave him a sleeping tablet which caused him to fall asleep but kept waking up screaming 'where is the blood?'

"The next morning she found alcohol in the kitchen and assumed he had gone out and bought it. When she returned home at around 4.30pm from work, the defendant grabbed her by her coat and threw her to the floor causing her to bang her head against a coffee table. He also threw his mobile at her.

"During the evening he took her keys to stop her leaving but she managed to get out to go to the shop. She sent him a message telling him to leave and that she would call police.

"When interviewed by police he denied assault and said problems with harassment came from the complainant.

"He said she harassed him and pleaded with him to get back together. He said she acted out of paranoia and jealousy.''

Wagster had a string of previous convictions including assault on a previous partner, harassment, battery and criminal damage.

His lawyer Neil Fryman said: ''The victim has been spared the trauma of reliving events in the witness box. He is also remorseful and wants to apologise to her through me.

"He is blighted by alcohol and mental health issues although this is not an excuse for his behaviour. These are problems he has grappled with throughout his adult life.

But sentencing Judge Hilary Manley told Wagster: "You took a young, vibrant and hardworking woman and turned her into a fearful, traumatised and damaged victim.

"Your demeanour when her victim impact statement was read out in the court suggests you feel no remorse at all.

''You are a practised and habitual domestic abuser. You have criminal convictions for assaults, threatening behaviour, home invasion, harassment and criminal damage- all committed against women you had been in a relationship with.

"Your schizophrenia is no excuse. You have not committed violence against other people, just the women in your life. You know what you are doing and intimidate, abuse and control your partners. Your relationships with women are typified by physical and emotional abuse.

"Your are a dangerous offender who exerts violence and control over women. You have shown contempt towards several partners.

"You are a menace who intimidates partners.''

Wagster will be on licence until 2025 following his release from jail under the terms of an extended sentence.

He was also banned from contacting the victim indefinitely under the terms of a restraining order.
