Baby Reindeer's 'real-life' Martha allegedly bombarded Sir Keir Starmer with hundreds of emails during an eight-month stalking campaign.

Fiona Harvey, 58, is said to have taunted the Labour leader about his 'ugly' wife and told him he was a "stupid little boy" and a "useless barrister".

Harvey is understood to be the inspiration for 'Martha' in the Netflix hit show, based on the real-life experience of Scots comedian Richard Gadd, 35. He plays a fictionalised version of himself in the show, which has been one of the streaming giant's biggest ever hits.

He has faced accusations of not taking appropriate steps to protecting Harvey's identity and questions have also been asked at the shows claims 'Martha' was convicted of stalking. Now, The Sun reports it has seen 276 emails sent to Sir Keir between January and August 2020, during which time he became the leader of the Labour Party and the UK went into lockdown due to the Covid pandemic.

It has been reported the messages, which share the trademark style of spelling and grammatical mistakes of those seen in the show, have been passed to the police. Aberdeenshire-born Harvey now lives in London and has denied stalking Gadd. She is said to be taking legal action against him and Netflix.

Harvey's messages to Sir Keir mainly relate to her unhappiness with Camden Council over her flat and local area, it is reported. Holborn and St Pancras MP Sir Keir was Harvey's representative at Westminster for four years.

The Sun reports in one message dating from May 20, 2020 included a disabled slur against Sir Keir's wife Victoria, adding: "God she looks dreadful. Dreadful." In one email, she posted pictures of rubbish saying it was "as filthy a s stArrmers house", while in another Harvey is said to have sent: "Keirs mates and voters still dumping hazardous rubbish."

In one note from April 2020, she seems to suggest Sir Keir had spoken to England's Housing Ombudsman about her, adding: "Keir cut the crap with me you stupid little boy."

"You get elected leader of. Non party and within two minutes I get an email calling me a racist from the housing ombudsman I've already complained about you to the standards commissioner who guess what also does nothing. See from now on il l complain about the slightest little thing Your life won't be worth living."

Harvey also took a pop at Scottish Labour, Labour's frontbench and branded Angela Rayner an "imbecile". One message also sent to SNP MP Pete Wishart made homophobic comments about Tony Blair and Gordon Brown and in one email attacked Boris Johnson while claiming she knew his dad, Stanley.

The Sun reported that Labour declined to comment while Harvey was unavailable. It comes as Piers Morgan claimed Netflix and Gadd had a "big problem" with Baby Reindeer having interviewed Harvey on his YouTube channel.
