Lorraine Kelly has shared her concerns ahead of Piers Morgan's interview with the woman claiming to be the 'real Martha' from Netflix smash hit, Baby Reindeer.

The show, which has amassed more than 18.6 million views since it launched on the streaming service last month, is based on the real-life experiences of Scots comedian Richard Gadd, the creator and star.

Having reached number one across the globe, Baby Reindeer follows the disturbing chain of events after he gave a customer who popped into the London pub he was working at a free cup of tea. The Daily Record carried the first current picture and newspaper interview with Fiona Harvey, 58, after she was exposed as the real-life Martha by internet sleuths.

And now the Scot, originally from Fyvie in Aberdeenshire, has gone head to head with celebrity interviewer Piers Morgan in a TV clash which will hit screens tonight (Thursday).

Discussing the upcoming interview on her ITV show earlier today, Lorraine said: "That's Piers Morgan there with the 'real-life Martha' from Netflix's hit show, Baby Reindeer, his interview is going to be out later today.

"Apparently, the stalking drama was based on her with [actress] Jessica Gunning playing a version of her in the show but it's also a drama, it was based on real true life. I just hope the 'real-life Martha' is actually alright, that she's okay and she's going to be fine to be interviewed..."

Harvey recorded her first “big TV interview” with the controversial broadcaster earlier this week. As we reported, she then told the Record she was “not happy” with Piers’ questioning after the interview was recorded in London.

She described her interview as a “sparring match” and was forced to refute claims by Piers that she “loved” Gadd. In the 30-minute show, planned for broadcast on Piers’ Youtube channel, the Scots law graduate will talk openly about being outed as the comedian's alleged stalker.

She will be grilled regarding allegations that she became obsessed with the Fife-born star over a period of years - inspiring the character of Martha.

In a post on X, formerly Twitter, on Wednesday, Piers was pictured alongside Fiona, as he wrote: "The real-life Martha from Baby Reindeer breaks cover and gives me her first TV interview about the smash hit Netflix show. Fiona Harvey wants to have her say & ‘set the record straight.’ Is she a psycho stalker?"

The highly-anticipated interview, titled The Real Martha Uncensored, will take place on Piers Morgan Uncensored. It will air at 8pm in the UK on Thursday, April 9.

It will be available to stream from Piers Morgan Uncensored YouTube Channel, which can be accessed by clicking here.
