  • An obsessed stalker who was caught on camera skulking around the home of Hollyoaks actress Stephanie Davis is on the run after failing to turn up to sentencing in court today.

    Alex Boston, 43, pleaded guilty at Liverpool Magistrates’ Court on November 12 to stalking the Celebrity Big Brother star, 28.

    But he failed to attend a sentencing hearing at the same court today and the judge has now issued an arrest warrant 

    Ms Davis suffered panic attacks and had to move out of her home as a result of the ‘frightening and distressing campaign of obsessive and unwanted contact’.

    And she even took to Instagram to post harrowing CCTV footage showing Boston sneaking around her front garden wearing a hooded jacket. 








    Alex Boston, 43, admitted the charge at Liverpool Magistrates' Court on Friday, a spokesman for the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said

    Ms Davis can be heard screaming in terror as she watches her stalker amble around and peer into crevices of her home and garden.  

    She posted the terrifying footage to Instagram alongside the caption: ‘My stalker. I’ve been quiet on social media for a long time and not as active as I use to be as this has been going on for nearly a year and I’ve had to stay quiet about it so it didn’t affect the case. 

    ‘It’s caused me so much distress, having to leave my home with Caben and move into my mums with no space for us with my routine changed and everything taken from me once again, my peace of mind, my sanity and my love for life. 

    ‘Looking over my shoulder every minute of the day, panicking wherever I go. My anxiety has been that bad I can’t even tell you and not being able to leave the house.

    ‘I’ve literally had the s****** year amongst s******* other years. You think it can’t get any worse and then it does. Life just isn’t fair sometimes. Sometimes I feel like I just don’t ever get a break. 

    ‘On top of this I lost my baby and a broken down relationship with horrendous heartbreak on top of grieving losing my baby and having a stalker. 

    ‘Everything together just destroyed my mental health slowly amongst other stresses and has took me to a real dark place once again amongst other stuff I’ve been dealing with privately. 

    ‘You can see on this video me and Ol leaving the house and the stalker still behind my bins. There’s a lot more too this but it will come out in the trial. I’m so thankful he’s been caught and I can try and restore my life, once again.

    ‘All of this together has been a big hit on me and genuinely at some points I haven’t seen a way out, it’s all been a lot of stress in top of stress on top of stress. I can’t wait to see the back of this year!! 

    ‘It’s hard when you think you finally have your happy ever after then it’s all taken away and more. I still struggle sleeping and still finding everything that’s happened really hard so I’m just taking some time for my self. 

    ‘But I’ve seen it’s all in the press, so this is one of the videos of me finding him at my house when I was home and walking out and him hiding behind my bins with a balaclava on sending things to Caben etc it’s just been a horror film. 

    ‘Just need a massive hug and a brand new start. Really feel like whoever has a voodoo doll of me with pins in needs to stop now. Just want peace and happiness.’

    A CPS spokesman said: ‘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.’

    Boston, of Moreton in Wirral, Merseyside, was identified through his Instagram account and fingerprint evidence on the letters, the CPS said.

    When his address was searched more letters intended for Davis were found. 

    Ronan Molloy, district crown prosecutor for CPS Mersey Cheshire, added: ‘Stalking and harassment can take many forms, 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.’ 

    Davis is best known for playing Sinead O’Connor on Hollyoaks and came to fame on BBC talent series Over The Rainbow.

    She has a four-year-old son with reality television personality Jeremy McConnell.
