Where else can we start?

Richard Gadd has been revealing details about his unfortunate encounter with the ‘real life Martha’ (who appears to be Fiona Harvey) since he first debuted his one-man comedy show at the Edinburgh Fringe.

During his ordeal, Richard claimed to have been sent thousands of emails, to have been stalked outside of his home, and that members of his family, including his girlfriend at the time, were harassed.

Fans of the Netflix adaptation were so concerned for him after watching the series that he had to assure them that everything is going alright for him these days.

However, since the series debuted, and the ‘real life Martha’ has come forward, sleuths on social media quickly identified Fiona as the potential inspiration for Martha in the series.

In an interview with Piers Morgan, Fiona lashed out against Richard’s depiction of events in the series and has threatened to sue Netflix.

Scottish stand-up comedian , she had also been hounded by the ‘real life Martha’ at one stage.

On Piers Morgan’s show, Fiona said: ‘[Baby Reindeer] is a work of fiction, a work of hyperbole. I wanted to rebut that completely on this show – I am not a stalker, I have not been to jail, I’ve not got injunctions – it is complete nonsense.’

But the 63-year-old comedian Janey revealed soon afterwards that Fiona had been replying to several of her tweets over the years – many of which were about the .

One such tweet asked Janey, ‘DM me, it’s pretty urgent’, while another said she missed Janey’s show at a comedy festival as a result of an ear infection.

Despite Janey’s comments, Fiona is yet to publicly respond to any of her statements on social media.

According to reports in , Fiona sent several emails to Sir Keir, calling him a ‘non job’, a ‘stupid little boy’, and a ‘useless barrister’, even threatening to report him to community watchdogs. She added in one: ‘Your life won’t be worth living.’

The publication also reported that, in the emails, she laid into his Labour colleague , calling her ‘an imbecile’, and also insulted his wife Victoria.

Laura Wray, the widow of former Labour MP Jimmy Wray, has admitted to being worried that Fiona Harvey will ‘come for her again’ after the release of the Netflix series Baby Reindeer.

She’s admitted to fearing for her own safety and told that, despite not thinking about Fiona for years, the success of one of Netflix’s biggest shows of the year has left her worried again.

‘My partner and I are concerned about what she might do next. Is she going to come after me? She is posting things on accusing me of all sorts, and of being abusive. You don’t know where it will end.’

She continued: ‘If she does have any friends, surely they should be trying to help her and calm things down. But she doesn’t want to calm things down. Part of her is really enjoying this.’

Fiona, however, has denied harassing Laura and Jimmy – who died in 2013, aged 78 – saying they were merely political rivals.
