Hollyoaks star Stephanie Davis stalked by fan who bombarded her with letters and creepy gifts in terrifying campaign
A CRAZED fan bombarded Hollyoaks star Stephanie Davis with creepy gifts and skulked outside her home in a terrifying stalking campaign.
Alex Boston, 43, became obsessed with the former soap star and even forced her to move home after she began suffering panic attacks.
The fan sent her messages on social media and delivered letters and gifts while loitering outside Stephanie's home.
He has now pleaded guilty to one charge of stalking at Liverpool and Knowsley Magistrates Court.
JPs heard how Stephanie was subjected to a "frightening and distressing campaign of obsessive and unwanted contact".
Boston's three-month campaign of harassment finally came to an end in July this year when police identified him using DNA from one of the letters he sent.
When cops searched his home in Moreton, they found several more letters he planned on sending to Stephanie.
Boston will be sentenced on December 22.
Ronan Molloy, District Crown Prosecutor for CPS Mersey Cheshire, said: "Stalking and harassment can take many forms, but the common denominator in all such cases is an unhealthy fixation on an individual by the perpetrator.
"Stalking is a serious offence, one which has a significant impact on the victim.
"The CPS is committed to the prosecution of these offences, working closely with our partners to ensure that victims are supported and protected wherever possible.
"Stalking is not a form of flattery and is not something women in public life should simply have to expect. It is a harmful practice and it will be taken very seriously.”
Stephanie found fame playing Sinead Shelby on Hollyoaks from 2010 to 2015.
She returned to the popular Channel 4 soap in 2018 but left again last year to pursue new projects.
Stephanie gave birth in 2017 to son Caben with her ex Jeremy McConnell.
The Sun revealed today how she has split with bike shop worker Oliver Tasker after five months together.
