The pair became subjected to numerous death threats and vile messages in 2020.

On the programme tonight (March 10), Mia reveals she came across the abuse after logging into her mum’s Instagram account.

Mia, 19, said: “Suddenly loads of messages started coming.

I was in floods of tears.

“They were all kind of just really offensive, calling us not very nice names and then they got much more graphic.

“It was the kind of actions that he wanted to do against me and mum which got really personal and they weren’t nice to read at all.”

Mia continued: “I was kind of terrified, all kind of shaking. I think my heart was beating really fast. I didn’t sleep all night. The entirety of the next day I was in floods of tears.”

In addition, Louise added: “It was very clear from the messages that this person knew exactly where we lived. He had stood outside our front door.

“You are kind of on this high state of alert all the time. You don’t know who they are. So, you don’t know that that person standing next to you isn’t them.”
