TV presenter Anna Richardson has asked people to help cheer up her girlfriend Sue Perkins – after she was hounded off Twitter by death threats.
The comedian has been subjected to a sustained campaign of harassment and death threats, after she was touted as a potential replacement for Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear.
Perkins has quit the social network in a bid to get away from the hateful messages – but her partner Anna Richardson is now asking people to prove to her that Twitter can be positive.
She tweeted: “My partner @sueperkins is off Twitter thanks to abuse over false rumours that she’s up for #TopGear. We’re just 2 girls trying to live life.
“If you get the chance, draw a kiss on a piece of paper, take a selfie & post. I’ll give them to her, it’ll cheer her up. X”
The Secret Eaters host was sent a barrage of pictures from people trying to cheer up her girlfriend.
