Lauren Pope is living in fear after an online troll threatened to stab her.

The Only Way Is Essex star has been going through a horrific ordeal for a full year and is scared to leave the house due to the internet stalker.

She told The Sun: “I’m basically being stalked. I’ve been to the police and they’re not doing anything.

“This guy has posted pictures outside my house, they’ve posted my parents’ address, my family’s names, they’ve threatened to stab me and the police do nothing.

“Do you remember when Jo Cox got stabbed? This person tweeted me saying they were going to do the same to me so I retweeted but hid his name.

“I was scared to leave my house for a bit.”

Lauren is angry with bosses of social media site Twitter as she claims they have done nothing to stop the person sending the messages.

And she is not the only person going through this experience - Lauren has been contacted by other models who think they are being targeted by the same person.

She said: “I have had about four or five different glamour girls that DM’d me saying, ‘I think I’m being trolled by the same person.’

“We all kind of chatted on WhatsApp and sent each other screen grabs and it’s definitely the same guy because it’s the same grammar and words. It sounds like he’s northern. I think there’s a few of us.

“He sets up new pages all the time so I report them to Twitter and you can tick the exact tweets that you’re referencing.

“The last few times Twitter has come back and said that the person hasn’t violated the terms and conditions and bearing in mind this person is calling me horrific things. It’s a joke.”

She added that it costs the police around £10,000 to track the person in a bid to find out who they are and she thinks the authorities don’t have the budget for this.

The DJ is so nervous about the situation that she plans to move to a gated community when she moves back to London to ensure her safety.
