Lizzie revealed she headed to David’s  home and spilled the blood up the steps of his house, on the walls inside and all over his bed.

Explaining why she chose to use pig’s blood, Lizzie said: “My brothers used to torture me by locking me in a pen with my father’s pigs. I was terrified of them.

“[And] David loved pigs. He loved them.”

The show then revealed photos of the carnage Lizzie caused inside his home.

Speaking about her antics, Lizze said, laughing: “I thought it was absolutely hilarious… I danced around the room with my paintbrush. I think I was probably a bit mad at the time.”

Lizzie pleaded guilty to criminal damage and had to serve 120 hours of community service, she also received a fine and has a restraining order against her.

When asked if she feels any remorse for what she did, Lizzie admitted: “Remorse for my poor children who say I’m an absolute mad monster, but actually personally? No remorse, no.”

“So that expression ‘revenge is sweet’ – did it feel sweet?” Ruth asked.
