Denise Welch was reportedly left feeling terrified when an alleged armed stalker turned up at her home one night.

The 62 year old, who recently savagely slammed Brooklyn Beckham's huge neck tattoo tribute to Nicola Peltz, was said to have been tucked in her bed with husband Lincoln Townley when someone "got into the grounds of their home".

According to The Sun Online, the Loose Women panellist and her 48 year old other half called 999 and police rushed over to arrest a man.

Speaking about the ordeal, the TV personality told the publication: "It was terrifying but we can’t talk about it for legal reasons.”

While a source shared more detail on the incident as they explained: "Denise and Townley were left really shaken by what happened.

"They started getting unwanted attention which culminated in a man armed with a knife being outside their property. They don’t know the guy and have no idea why he focused on them.

“But they are determined to stand up for themselves and do whatever they can to ensure it stops.”
