Glasgow comedian Frankie Boyle has reportedly been left feeling terrified after being stalked by an English fan.

The woman travelled to Scotland after tracking the Southsider down on social media sites where she sent him unwanted messages, reports The Scottish Sun.

As well as tracking him around Edinburgh, she also followed the 45-year-old comic around well-known spots in Glasgow’s West End, including the Botanic Gardens in Great Western Road and The Stand Comedy Club in Woodlands Road where he made regular appearances.
