Former Hollyoaks star Stephanie Davis saw a man accused of stalking her plead guilty in court yesterday (November 12).

As reported by Sky News, 43-year old Alex Boston from Moreton in Merseyside attended Liverpool and Knowsley Magistrates Court and pleaded guilty to the charge of stalking which included sending constant messages to the actress.

A spokesperson for the Crown Prosecution Service is quoted as saying: "Between April 2020 and July 2021, Boston stalked Ms Davis by bombarding her with messages via social media, delivering letters and gifts, and loitering outside her home address."

"Stalking and harassment can take many forms," prosecutor Ronan Molloy said, "but the common denominator in all such cases is an unhealthy fixation on an individual by the perpetrator.

"Stalking is a serious offence, one which has a significant impact on the victim. The CPS is committed to the prosecution of these offences, working closely with our partners to ensure that victims are supported and protected wherever possible.

"Stalking is not a form of flattery and is not something women in public life should simply have to expect. It is a harmful practice and it will be taken very seriously."

Boston was identified via his social media and police discovered further letters intended for the actress when they searched his house. He is due to be sentenced on December 22.

As well as playing Sinead O'Connor on and off on Hollyoaks between 2010 and 2019, Davis also took part in the BBC's Over the Rainbow and Celebrity Big Brother.

Hollyoaks airs new episodes from Mondays to Fridays at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first-look screenings at 7pm on E4. Selected omnibus episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video.
