A woman claiming to be the 'real life' Baby Reindeer sat down with Piers Morgan on Thursday for a head to head interview leaving viewers in a stir.

Scottish woman, Fiona Harvey, who claims to be the 'real life' character is originally from Fyvie in Aberdeenshire. She recorded her first “big TV interview” with the controversial broadcaster earlier this week.

Ahead of the anticipated broadcast, the Scottish law graduate told The Daily Record "she was not happy" with Piers' questioning after recording the chat in London. Harvey was questioned by Piers about being outed as the stalker of Scottish comedian, Richard Gadd.

In the show Gadd, 34, plays a fictionalised version of himself called Donny Dunn who is ruthlessly stalked by a Scottish woman called Martha. The show tells viewers it is based on a “true story”, reports The Daily Record.

Over 200,000 people tuned in for the dramatic interview with viewers all left saying the same thing - that they were all intrigued to hear what she had to say - and were glued to their screens. Some people also said it was the "TV event of the year".
