TV presenter and former Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt issued a tearful warning after a man waited for her at a train station and began stalking her.
The reality TV star, 31, shared a video to her Instagram Stories explaining what happened and warning people not to make the same mistake.
She said, “I’m not going to make this video for attention or anything like that,” but to make sure others are aware of the dangers of letting people know where you are.
“I was stupid, naive, having posted on Instagram saying ‘take the train to London’,” she revealed.
“And when I got into King’s Cross station, there was a guy there… this guy came up to me and said, ‘Scarlett, I’ve been waiting for you, will you come home with me? “
When she said “no thanks” and walked away, he followed her and repeated “Scarlett, Scarlett, are you coming home with me? I’ll take you home with me”.
She said the staff saw what was happening and approached her as if they were meant to meet, and two LNER agents, Neil and Danny, took her back to her hotel.
“I don’t know what I would do without you,” she said of the two men.
Telling her followers to be careful on social platforms, she warns: “You never know who’s watching your stories.
“I’ve never even thought of this before, be careful what you’re posting.”
