"They started getting unwanted attention which culminated in a man armed with a knife being outside their property. They don’t know the guy and have no idea why he focused on them," it was added.Denise shot to fame in 1997 as Natalie Horrocks in Coronation Street and has also acted in Waterloo Road and Hollyoaks. headtopics.com
