Jodie Marsh has revealed that she’s been “living in terror” for the past two years, stating that she often receives death threats and fears possible stalkers.
The glamour model-turned-investigative journalist made her comments via Twitter, after reading about the online threats Chloe Madeley has received this week.
Jodie took to Twitter after hearing about the vile messages sent to Chloe, explaining that she often feels worried for her safety.
Jodie began her stream of tweets, writing: “I'm very happy that the police are taking @MadeleyChloe threats seriously but it does make me wonder why @EssexPoliceUK won't help ME....
“I've been getting death threats for the best part of 2 years & I'm terrified. I know who it is & I'm scared when out at events.
“When I did that charity abseil a while back, my stalker threatened to cut the rope! @EssexPoliceUK told me to "stay indoors”.”
Jodie then retweeted a number of the responses she was receiving, before continuing.
I've been told by @EssexPoliceUK there's nothing more they can do even though I am STILL getting death threats from the same person...— Jodie Marsh (@JodieMarsh) October 16, 2014ADVERTISEMENT
Being totally honest, it makes me want to move abroad. I don't feel safe anywhere knowing this person is watching me & out there!— Jodie Marsh (@JodieMarsh) October 16, 2014
I genuinely don't care if I get in trouble for saying all this. Nearly TWO years on I'm still living in absolute terror & turning down work!— Jodie Marsh (@JodieMarsh) October 16, 2014
I'm thankful I'm a strong woman tbh. I would not be getting through each day without my inner strength. It's been the worst two years...— Jodie Marsh (@JodieMarsh) October 16, 2014
It's so sad but the only time I've felt safe in last 2 years is when I've been abroad filming my documentaries. And that's saying something— Jodie Marsh (@JodieMarsh) October 16, 2014
Jodie’s reaction follows the news that Chloe has been sent a number of abusive messages on Twitter, following her mother Judy Finnigan’s controversial comments on ‘Loose Women’.
Judy and the panel were discussing a rape case when she appeared to suggest that the assault was “non-violent”.
The presenter has now apologised and clarified her statement, explaining that this is not what she meant.
At present, Jodie is fronting her own series of investigative documentaries, the first of which took a closer look at the world of plastic surgery.
Earlier this week, the former model made a bold claim, stating that she thinks she’s a better reporter than Ross Kemp and Louis Theroux put together.
