  • Piers Morgan interviewed the alleged “Baby Reindeer” stalker for his YouTube channel.
  • Fiona Harvey said she felt “used” by the presenter and claimed she was paid £250 for the interview.
  • “He did it fast-paced to catch me off guard,” she said.

A woman who was outed by “Baby Reindeer” fans as the alleged stalker of the true crime drama’s creator and lead actor said she felt “used” by Piers Morgan in an interview about the Netflix series.

“Baby Reindeer” tells a fictionalized version of creator Richard Gadd‘s experiences with stalking, and has become a worldwide phenomenon since its release in April. That month, an unnamed woman who was outed on social media as “the real Martha Scott” told the Daily Mail she was considering taking legal action against Gadd and Netflix for the harassment she has faced as a result of viewers trying to track her down.

On Wednesday, Morgan revealed he had interviewed Fiona Harvey, believed to be the woman first interviewed by the Daily Mail. The interview will be released Thursday at 3pm ET on Morgan’s YouTube channel, Piers Morgan Uncensored.

Morgan tweeted that Harvey “wants to have her say & ‘set the record straight.'”

But when speaking to the Scottish website Daily Record about her interview with Morgan, Harvey said: “I have my own thoughts on it that I’d like to keep to myself but I wouldn’t say I was happy. It was very rapid to try to trip me up. He did it fast paced to catch me off guard.”

Harvey claimed she was paid £250 for the 30-minute interview with Morgan, which she said focused heavily on the messages she allegedly sent Gadd.

“I said, ‘Look, Even if I had sent some emails, it doesn’t mean I’m guilty of the rest of the stuff. As I said, in order to bill something as a true story, it’s got to be pretty much 100% true,” Harvey said.

She also claimed that Morgan tried to ask her about her feelings about Gadd.

“It seemed to me that I was set up. I feel a bit used,” she added. “He asked me if I loved Richard Gadd and I said ‘you’ve got to be joking.'”

Piers Morgan’s manager did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

It’s not clear whether Gadd and Harvey have spoken about “Baby Reindeer.” But on Tuesday, the actor told an audience at a Q&A session in Los Angeles that he feels “toxic empathy” toward his stalker and doesn’t see her as a villain.
