Man admits stalking former Hollyoaks actress Stephanie Davis

Written by on 13 November 2021

A man has pleaded guilty to stalking former Hollyoaks actress Stephanie Davis, after bombarding her with gifts, letters and social media messages.

Alex Boston, 43, from Moreton in Merseyside, admitted the charges at Liverpool Magistrates’ Court on Friday, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said.

The 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 was identified through his Instagram account, as well as fingerprint evidence on letters, the CPS added.

More letters intended for Davis were found when officers searched Boston’s home.

He will be sentenced on 22 December.

Ronan Molloy, district crown prosecutor for CPS Mersey Cheshire, said: “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 played Sinead O’Connor on Hollyoaks after rocketing to fame on the BBC talent show Over The Rainbow.
