At 18, singer Chloe Hopkins thought she had a keen fan, but then realised things were getting a lot worse.

For four years Chloe was subjected to being followed by a man who got her name tattooed on himself.

After winning the title of Miss Prestatyn 2010 Chloe realised that one man was constantly turning up at her performances, he then started to appear when she was out with friends, eventually sitting behind her as she grieved at a friend's funeral.

Anthony Mantova from Prestatyn was eventually jailed in July 2012 after admitting to harassment, and sent back to prison shortly after his release for breaching the terms of a restraining order.

This was all after Chloe took an overdose of anti-depressants.  

Chloe has been talking to Heart's Charlene Smith
