‘STALK­ING IS TER­RI­FY­ING’

Closer (UK) - - Celeb Guest -

It’s alarm­ing to read that one in five women has ex­pe­ri­enced stalk­ing since the age of 16. It shows that mil­lions of peo­ple are forced to deal with the ter­ri­fy­ing con­se­quences. Hav­ing been a vic­tim my­self, I know how it feels [Ni­cola’s ex, Carl Davies, was given a life­time re­strain­ing or­der af­ter bom­bard­ing her with threat­en­ing mes­sages in a five-year cam­paign of stalk­ing]. I am try­ing to get a doc­u­men­tary com­mis­sioned that fo­cuses on mak­ing it com­pul­sory for every child to learn about hav­ing healthy re­la­tion­ships, in­clud­ing learn­ing about sex ed­u­ca­tion, on­line bul­ly­ing, stalk­ing and men­tal health. If we teach kids from a young age how se­ri­ous a crime stalk­ing is, we can po­ten­tially pre­vent this epi­demic from get­ting worse.
