Netflix‘s Baby Reindeer.Harvey appeared on Piers Morgan Uncensored last Thursday (May 9), her first television interview since confirming her identity earlier in the week.Baby Reindeer is a semi-autobiographical series written by the comedian Richard Gadd that claims to tell the “true story” of a struggling stand-up (played by Gadd) who is maliciously stalked by an older woman named Martha.In the interview, which has been viewed over 10 million times, Harvey denied many aspects of the show’s narrative, saying that she did not stalk Gadd, attack his girlfriend, destroy the bar he worked in or contact his parents.

She also strongly denied being convicted of any charges, which is the fate that befalls Martha in the show.Viewers were quick to question the ethics of the interview since Gadd has previously stated that his real stalker was “mentally unwell”.

However, Morgan has hit back at the claims, saying Harvey should be allowed to “tell her side of the story”.“If she was a convicted stalker who had gone to prison and put his life through hell, clearly we had to think long and hard about the public interest justification in giving her the platform,” Morgan told BBC News Culture and Media Editor Katie Razzall.“But I felt there was enough of a question mark surrounding that part of the story to justify her at least giving her side of the story.

She is emphatic that there was no court case, no conviction, she never pled guilty and there was no prison sentence,” he added.MORE BABY REINDEER: What did @piersmorgan consider before speaking to alleged 'real Martha' & does he regret the interview some have called exploitative?
