A dad who ran off with a Ukrainian refugee 10 days after she moved in with his family has been barred from approaching his ex.

On Wednesday (July 13) Anthony Garnett, 29, was ordered not to contact Lorna, 28, the mum to their two daughters, after she took him to court over allegations he sent her abusive texts.

The Sun also reported that he was warned not to go within 100 metres of the couple's home in Bradford, where they lived before he fell for blonde Sofia Karkadym, 22, from Lviv, who fled Ukraine after Russia invaded in February.

Anthony agreed to the non-molestation restraining order, which bars him phoning, texting or emailing Lorna and contacting her by social media.

He said: “I know the truth. I’ve done nothing wrong. I didn’t turn up with a solicitor because I don’t have anything to defend. Sadly, this is turning into an episode of Jeremy Kyle."

Lorna has now agreed not to make “derogatory” ­messages about him on social media and to remove previous posts.

She said: “I want nothing to do with him. I just want him to leave me alone.”

Lorna sat at the back of Bradford County Court as her solicitor, Sadia Ali, detailed the terms of the restraining order.

Anthony, who is reportedly launching a career as a rap artist, told the court: “I’m that busy now with media, TV and music that I don’t need to go to the house.”

Anthony fell for Sofiia after offering her a place to stay when she left Ukraine.

The father-of-two later apologised for the pain the pairing had caused, but said: “We’re planning the rest of our lives together.

"I knew I couldn’t give her up. We never set out to do this. It wasn’t planned and we didn’t mean to hurt anyone.”
