Ex-Page 3 model horrified and ‘scared’ by Iceland delivery driver’s creepy text


A former Page 3 model has slammed a creepy Iceland delivery driver who texted her to ask her out after dropping off her shopping.

Angelica Harte answered the door to her flat in her pyjamas and said she barely even spoke to the worker when he brought her £60 shop.

But two hours later, he sent her a text asking whether she’d like to meet him in the park the next day, adding: “I’m not working so anytime that suits you.”

Horrified Angelica says women should be able to take deliveries without the fear of being hit on by staff.

The 44-year-old said: “I was in my pyjamas with no make-up on, but even like that I still got that type of attention from a man who was prepared to lose his job over asking me out.

“I was scared that not only did he have my phone number but he had my address also and could appear at any time. I was really distraught over it. I didn’t see the funny side of it at all.”

Angelica lives alone with her puppy Hugo and had been getting Iceland deliveries for around a year when the incident occurred.

The text from the driver read: “Hi this is the Iceland driver from earlier didn’t get chance to say what I wanted because your neighbour came out, do you fancy a walk in the park tomorrow I’m not working so anytime that suits you.”

She explained: “He seemed like a normal middle-aged man.

“He was staring at me and seemed to want to engage in conversation whereas I’m really shy and just wanted my groceries and to shut the door.

“About two hours later I got the text. I was shocked and angry.

“Within a week I think I complained to Iceland.

“Now my friend takes me food shopping which isn’t ideal as I’m in the vulnerable group so I’d rather stay away from people to avoid catching Covid.”

Angelica, from Tettenhall, Wolverhampton, added: “I felt vulnerable and I didn’t expect that type of nonsense just getting my shopping delivered.”

An Iceland spokesman said that the driver had been fired.
