London, Mar 31 (ANI): British actress Laila Rouass has had to flee her luxurious home, and share former lover Gary Stretch’s London flat, after she started getting death threats.

Rouass, 33, who played the role of spoilt Amber Gates in ITV’s ‘Footballers’ Wives’, had been living alone in Surrey with her two-year-old daughter Inez, when she was scared off by late-night prowlers.

“She is scared for her life. Cops are taking the threats very seriously,” the Sun quoted a source as saying.

“She has moved in with Gary for extra security,” the source added.

Stretch, 40, offered the use of his flat to Rouass, and she has taken Inez out of her nursery after he said he would look after her.

“She is not taking any chances,” the source, who also revealed that the actress was not giving in to threats, said.

“Laila is not prepared to give in to bullies. She is a feisty lady - but she must put the safety of her daughter first.

“She is not romantically involved with former British Light Middleweight champ Gary but when he offered to let her move in it seemed the best option. She won’t stay long-term but she needs to feel safe,” the source added.

Rouass made her first appearance in Primeval last Saturday, when it launched its third series pulling in 5.6million viewers. (ANI)
