Kym Marsh's stalker terror

Share article:

Kym Marsh was terrified to leave her home when she was targeted by a stalker.

The "Coronation Street" star was stalked by an obsessed fan nine years ago and admitted that recently hearing about Kylie Minogue's stalker has brought the bad memories back.

She told The Sun: "I did see the story about what happened to Kylie and I think we are all still very, very much sitting ducks - and yes it is a scary thought.

"At the time when all of that was going on for me I didn't want to go anywhere by myself. I was really freaked out. It does make you look over your shoulder and none of us should have to live in fear.

"I think it's a really important message that none of us should have to be going about our daily business and worrying who is doing what and saying what.

"This is something that happens to people that are in the public eye on a daily basis. In my case people were even pretending to be me online and you just think "Oh God" you know, but without realising actually that could be really potentially quite scary down the line."

And Kim, 42, revealed that her family have also been targeted by people obsessed with her.

She said: "It opens a whole can of worms, and there have been people impersonating my elder daughter Emilie, opening up profile pages on dating websites using her name her face, saying that she's bisexual or all sorts of other things and wanting to meet girls of the same age.

"Again, who is that? And someone's going to respond and think they're going to go and meet her and what on earth happens then? It's scary because it seems to that there's nothing you can do to stop it - there's no law against it."

Kym is set to present a new three-part TV programme "Stalked: Murder in Slow Motion", which tells the stories of three young stalking victims who were murdered by men close to them.
