“The second I hear a bump in the night I go, ‘Oh, that’s it. I’m about to be raped and killed’. I’m scared of being alone physically a lot of the time."

As she prepared to front a new documentary about her experiences of sexual harassment, Emily admitted: “I remember teachers saying, ‘Don’t wear a skirt to school, It’s asking for the wrong kind of attention.’ I thought I had to change me.

“My whole life, it’s always been people blaming the way I look for these things happening, ‘You wear too much make-up, you wear a short skirt’.”

During the programme, Emily also spoke to the police about what is being done to protect women and girls.

The Inbetweeners star, 33, revealed: “This was the hardest thing I’ve ever filmed in my life.

“I had a lot of therapy throughout. It was revisiting trauma.”

It comes after Emily took to social media to share a blurred out screenshot a video she was sent by a man performing a sex act on himself.

She shared a blurred out screenshot of the man masturbating in the footage with her followers, explaining that it happens "every day".

In her social media message, Emily explained: "This was moments after I posted about my interview on @happyplaceofficial discussing my life with constant sexual harassment.

"A man sending me videos of him masturbating. This will now continue to happen throughout the day. All day, every day."
