This was even briefly mentioned in tonight's ITV News West Country.
David Garmston presented the first 10 minutes or so of tonight's BBC Points West solo, whilst various items about Alex's ordeal and the issue of stalking in general were introduced. Alex herself featured in both of the main pre-recorded packages.
She then joined David to co-present the day's other news from about 18:40 onwards. Given how she's continued her on-screen duties throughout her 5-year ordeal, and even tonight, shows what a strong person she is.
At the close of the programme, she thanked viewers for their outpouring of warm and supportive messages received via the programme's social media outlets and email.
The "and finally" item on both ITV News West Country and BBC Points West tonight was about a memorial service for a recently deceased swan known as "Angry Bob" at a country house estate near Taunton!
I could charm the vultures off a corpse.
