Holly Willoughby horrified by This Morning caller’s stalker experience

Holly Willoughby was left horrified during Thursday's This Morning.

Phillip Schofield 's co-star listened in horror as a caller told her experience with a stalker in a special segment with retired Met Police detective Sue Hill.

The segment highlighted the dangers women can face in light of the horrific case of Sarah Everard who vanished around Clapham Common last week.

This Morning viewer Karen phoned into the studio to give her harrowing story of being followed by a stranger while going to pick up her son.

Talking about the recent incident, she said: "Yeah, [it happened] on Monday.

"I was making a 35-minute walk to pick him up from school.

"I was walking along the main road and there was a man on the other side and he pointed at me, so I just ignored it.

"Carried on walking, crossed the road and he approached me and started shouting the most vilest things ever. It was the most shocking thing ever."

Stunned, Holly went on to give more information about the incident in which the man was 'yelling what he wanted to do sexually'.

Holly added: "And you said, 'I had to grin and bear it until he got bored'"

Karen replied: "Yeah, I just totally ignored him.

"I just had to act like he wasn't there because I was so scared."

Visibly distressed Holly was quick to offer her condolences for the attack.

She said: "Firstly, I'm just so sorry that you had to go through something like that but Sue, what's the best thing to do in that sort of situation? It's not acceptable."

Giving her best advice, Sue explained that not matter how uncomfortable it may be to relive the situation, it's always best to tell the police.

She said: "That's really scary and it's frightening. You have to tell the police because he could be doing it to somebody else."

Sarah Everard, 33, was last seen in south London on March 3 as she walked homed alone for a friend's house.

A serving police officer, who wasn't on duty at the time, has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

In a statement, Ms Everard's family said: "Sarah was bright and beautiful – a wonderful daughter and sister. She was kind and thoughtful, caring and dependable. She always put others first and had the most amazing sense of humour.

"She was strong and principled and a shining example to us all. We are very proud of her and she brought so much joy to our lives."
