The woman at the centre of the Baby Reindeer story has slammed Piers Morgan as a "twerp" and a "bully", criticising their explosive TV interview set to air tonight.

Fiona Harvey, 58, accused the outspoken presenter of "triggering" her emotions during their conversation for his YouTube channel, following Morgan's announcement of the 'world exclusive' earlier in the week.

On X, previously known as Twitter, Morgan posted a photo of himself with Harvey on the set of his Piers Morgan Uncensored YouTube show, claiming: "*WORLD EXCLUSIVE* The real-life Martha from Baby Reindeer breaks cover and gives me her first TV interview about the smash hit Netflix show. [Redacted] wants to have her say and 'set the record straight.' Is she a psycho stalker? Find out tomorrow on @PiersUncensored."

However, mere hours before the interview's 8pm airing, Harvey expressed her disdain on Facebook, stating: "Piers is a twerp. But we [already] know this."

She added, "You will see in my interview I'll let the [interview] speak for itself. Piers is a bully, we all know that. He triggers emotions. But this interview will get more views. By far most of his other interviews with all misogynist men he often defends Andrew Tate Donald Trump."

The Record exclusively revealed yesterday that Harvey, hailing from Fyvie in Aberdeenshire, was less than pleased with the line of questioning from Piers Morgan during her interview. She likened the experience to a "sparring match" and felt compelled to deny Piers' insinuation that she "loved" Fife-born Richard Gadd, who she is accused of stalking in the Netflix documentary, reports the Daily Record.

She expressed her discomfort, saying: "There was a heavy emphasis from Piers Morgan on Gadd and the emails I am supposed to have sent. I have my own thoughts on it that I'd like to keep to myself but I wouldn't say I was happy. It was very rapid to try to trip me up. He did it fast paced to catch me off guard."

"Piers kept saying to me 'are you sure you haven't sent this guy 41,000 emails and phone calls? '. For a significant part of the interview, at least 10 minutes, he repeatedly questioned this."

"I told him, 'Look, Even if I had sent some emails, it doesn't mean I'm guilty of the rest of the stuff. As I said, in order to bill something as a true story, it's got to be pretty much 100% true."

"It seemed to me that I was set up. I feel a bit used."

She also mentioned: "Piers said it went well. He referred to it as a sparring match. He landed a few punches on me and I landed a few punches on him. He asked me if I loved Richard Gadd and I said you've got to be joking."

Harvey disclosed that she received a mere £250 for the half-hour interview. In the programme, the Scots law graduate will candidly discuss being identified as the alleged stalker of comedian Richard Gadd.

The show is set to premiere on the broadcaster's YouTube channel, which boasts a whopping 2.58 million subscribers, at 8pm on Thursday.
