Loose Women guest presenter Christine Bleakley has branded her stalker’s alleged tweets as ‘sinister and dark’.
The 39-year-old has been recalling the events at a Newton hearing, which is being held at Isleworth Crown Court to decide whether or not Christof King, 39 of Mowbray Road, Brent, sent the tweets.King pleaded guilty last week to stalking but disputes sending the tweets.
Giving evidence from behind a curtain, Mrs Lampard said the “disturbing” tweets caused her so much concern she showed them to her husband.
Although she said several tweets, some tagging her employer ITV and her husband, were ‘incoherent waffle’ and added, ‘Several tweets became quite sinister and dark.’
It’s reported Christine, who pregnant, received letters and had King turn up at the house she shares with husband Frank Lampard on more than one occasion.
Christine, who has 439k followers on the social media channel explained that she noticed his tweets because ‘there were so many of them’.
One tweet he is alleged to have sent said: ‘I can hear the scratch of nails as I sharpen them ahead of your crucifixion.’
The court heard another tweet said: ‘I am planning the words that will go on your gravestone.’
Mrs Lampard said her biggest concern was that she worked predominantly on live TV, meaning it is not too difficult to work out her whereabouts.
Speaking about the letters sent by King, Mrs Lampard said: ‘I felt very uneasy with the letters. Incredibly odd, including one written to my dog. But, it was this sense that he felt a certain destiny to talk to me which is clearly not normal.’
The court was told how the TV star was at home when her housekeeper answered the door to a man called Christof who had asked for them, but because she thought it was the Christof her husband Frank works with, they both approached the front door and Mrs Lampard recognised him as the ‘man from Twitter’.
The hearing continues.
