HOLBY City star Rosie Marcel has told how her new man has brought joy back to her life as she recovers from a campaign of terror by a stalker who threatened to kill her.

The 35-year-old actress, who plays ice-queen surgeon Jac Naylor, says she was on the verge of a nervous breakdown and thought about taking her own life. But in an interview with Hello! magazine she told how gym owner Ben Stacey helped her to get her life back on track.

She said: “He is responsible for putting happiness back in my life when I was going through a terrible, terrible time. Ben also helped me feel better about myself when I had lost all my self-confidence.”

During her ordeal – for which a woman was jailed on harassment charges – she was subjected to threatening e-mails and fake accounts were set up in her name on social media sites.

Marcel was angered by the fact she was powerless to get any of the accounts closed down.
