Stephanie Davis stalked by fan who bombarded her with gifts and caused her to move home

A fan stalked actress Stephanie Davis, staying outside her home and bombarding her with creepy gifts.

Alex Boston, 43, subjected the Hollyoaks star, 28, to a "frightening campaign", which reportedly caused her to move house due to panic attacks.

Boston would send her messages, letters and gifts, as well as "loitering outside" her house.

He pleaded guilty to the charge of stalking at Liverpool and Knowsley Magistrates Court and he will be sentenced on 22 December.

It was heard that Boston "bombarded" Stephanie for fifteen months between April 2020 and July 2021.

A spokesperson for the Crown Prosecution Service said: "Between April 2020 and July 2021, Boston stalked Ms Davis by bombarding her with messages via social media, delivering letters and gifts, and loitering outside her home address."

He was identified by police from one of the letters he'd sent to Stephanie as well as using Instagram.

Police searched his house in Moreton when they found more letters that were for Stephanie.

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."
