Ellie Costello Stalked/Leo Jones

Costello was stalked for 16 months by Leo Jones, a male viewer and former Airline star. She had previously interviewed him via Zoom where he commented about the travel industry under Covid-19 restrictions in August 2021 and again interviewed him in October of the same year before the stalking started.

Jones began following her to filming locations, and after the October interview, he inundated her with numerous inappropriate messages, to which she did not respond. After she explicitly told him to cease the messages, he complied for three months. However, when Costello blocked him on social media to prevent further contact, he escalated his actions. He appeared at her workplace, sought her out, and sent flowers and emails. Resorting to create a new Instagram account, he continued attempting to reach her.

Costello described the experience as terrifying and acknowledged its impact on her workplace demeanor. In late 2022, Jones pleaded guilty to stalking and harassment at St Albans Magistrates’ Court. Costello provided evidence from behind a curtain during the court proceedings. Jones received a suspended prison sentence and a five-year restraining order as a result of his actions. She also posted a message on her Instagram account raising awareness of stalking and talking about how the encounter impacted her life.
