Alex’s voice was strained and she battled tears as she told of how her father would be violent toward her mother.

She then recalled thehardest night”.

Alex told Steve in a video posted O que Simon Leviev disse sobre sua filha YouTube canal: “I’m in a room, listening to everything go on, just hoping she’s alive.

I heard everything, I heard her trying to run.

But she doesn’t know what me and my brother are doing or feeling.

That was the hardest night that one.

She says the house was just silent the next morning, and she wasn’t allowed to even speak to, let alone hug, a mãe dela.

Alex disse: “Como um 5-6 year old, I just want to hug my mum. But we can’t. I wasn’t allowed to show love.

I suppose that’s why a word like control is easy to sayuntil you break it down and understand that’s the control.

I’m not even allowed to show love, or hug, or speak really.

Steve asked why she wasn’t allowed to hug her mother and Alex said her father said she couldn’tand there would be consequences.

It was that homelife that drove Alex to futebol americano, as she says it was asafe space”.

When Steve asked what the consequence would be she said: “What my mum would go through, the terror, the helplessness that you can’t do anything, just living in fear.

You’re living in fear every single moment.

That’s why the football cage becomes your escape, for me.

I’m not even allowed to show love, or hug, or speak really.

Alex Scott

Alex tells all in her book, but admitted it was one of the first times she’d truly opened up about her life.

She told Steve: “It’s hard for me to talk about, because I suppose I’ve hid it all this time.

Alex added: “But because of everything that I’ve gone through, I am the person I am now.

You have to take the good bits, and bad bits, and it’s what makes me me.

Alex has opened up about many unknown parts of her life this week, including when she was racially abused and trolled online.

She also fought back tears on The One Show as she recalled hitting rock bottom during an alcohol battle.

Alex also spoke about her love life, and how she had been in a secret relationship with her fellow Lioness star Kelly Smith – e um disaterous date she went on with Coronation Street’s Sam Robertson.

  • Sempre guarde algum dinheiro com você, incluindo troco para um telefone público ou tarifa de ônibus.
  • Se você suspeita que seu parceiro está prestes a atacá-lo, tente ir para uma área de menor risco da casa - por exemplo, onde há uma saída e acesso a um telefone.
  • Evite a cozinha e a garagem, onde é provável que haja facas ou outras armas. Evite salas onde você pode ficar preso, como o banheiro, ou onde você pode estar fechado em um armário ou outro espaço pequeno.
