Carol Vorderman claims Johnny Mercers wife has been harassing me for months

Carol Vorderman has claimed she has been “harassed” by politician Johnny Mercer’s wife for months.

The TV presenter took to Twitter to share a video of some of the tweets Mr Mercer’s wife – Felicity Cornelius-Mercer – had tagged her in.

Speaking on LBC to host James O’Brien, Carol explained the MP’s wife has “been harassing me for months on Twitter. One day, she sent over 60 tweets in my direction.”

She also added that she has considered getting the police involved. The fall out comes from a Twitter dispute where Carol Vorderman tweeted on Saturday (July 8) and referenced both Jonny and Felicity.

She wrote: “Not a degree in sight in spite of expensive private education! So who’d employ them?”

Speaking on LBC, James O’Brien addressed the tweets as he said: “I don’t know whether people are pretending not to understand or whether they genuinely failed to understand what the point you were making in the tweets about Mr and Mrs Mercer’s degreeless state.”

Replying, Carol explained: “Yes. So this came, and it’s a distraction technique from the real story. So this I’m going to tell you people don’t know yet. But Johnny Mercer’s wife has been harassing me for months on Twitter.

“One day, she sent over 60 tweets in my direction. And that’s just one day. A lot of vile abuse, a lot of appalling stuff and words that she used about my private life, I mean really misogynistic stuff, actually.”

She continued: “But people don’t know that, that’d be the first time that people will know that. To the point where I almost felt like reporting her to be honest. It was quite upsetting.

“So I said nothing. I did absolutely nothing. She did a podcast actually with Rachel Johnson saying Carol Vorderman drives me effing nuts. She’s stupid. She’s this, she’s that. I still said nothing. Absolutely nothing.”

In response to Carol’s comments, Felicity Cornelius-Mercer told LBC: “I think people can see for themselves what it is. The 60 tweets she’s referring to are comments from her followers that she has told to get in touch with MPs and ask why they haven’t got their Party in their bio.

“To highlight- she was funnelling unnecessary criticism in MP’s direction- in Jonny’s direction. If you incite all of this upset on one political Party and you keep going you eventually make a mistake.

“And she has made a mistake by telling me and Jonny we are unemployable because we don’t have a degree. All I’m trying to do is push back against hatred against one political Party.”
