TV presenter Sian Lloyd reveals how harrowing experience with a stalker completely changed her life

Weather presenter Sian Lloyd has revealed how a terrifying stalking incident has “completely changed my life”.

Sian, 58, was targeted by a mystery stalker at her house in Wales and said it had left her fearful in her own home.

The TV presenter told Welsh language TV station S4C she had been stalked on several occasions during her career in showbusiness, but one incident in particular had shaken her.

“Sadly I think it’s completely changed my life,” she said, according to Wales Online.

“I’ve gone from someone hyper-confident, carefree, going from one thing to another, never looking over my shoulder. Now I look over my shoulder mentally and physically.”

The stalker was reportedly present at an event where Sian had been presenting awards, and when she returned home she had a horrible discovery.

“Having driven up from London with my husband there were loads of letters and right on top was a handwritten letter,” she said.

“I opened it and a picture fell out of the most revolting close up of what we shall say was a man in a state of excitement, a man’s private parts, and it could not have been a bigger close-up.

“And there was an accompanying letter that said ‘This is for you and there’s plenty more where that came from’ and he even gave his phone number.”

But though she had a phone number, police were apparently unable to trace the culprit.

Sian added: “I resent his intrusion enormously. You could say he’s done me a favour as I’m incredibly alert because of what could go wrong, and it might sound as if I’m a scaredy-cat or paranoid but better that than the possibility of a tragic outcome.”
