A Place In The Sun’s Laura Hamilton reveals her husband called an ambulance after she suffered a severe panic attack due to being targeted by cruel online trolls
A Place In The Sun host Laura Hamilton has revealed her husband called an ambulance after she suffered a horrendous panic attack brought on by online trolling.
The TV presenter, 38, revealed on Thursday that vile comments posted about her village shop and cafe, Lord Roberts On The Green, left her requiring medical assistance.
She elaborated on the ‘scary’ experience which saw her husband Alex Goward call an ambulance as she felt like she was ‘drowning’ due to the overwhelming anxiety.
‘I try not to look’ : On Thursday, A Place In The Sun host Laura Hamilton recalled suffering from a horrendous panic attack last year after receiving online hate from cruel trolls
‘I try not to look at stuff for one. I try not to look at things online because it’s very easy isn’t it, to get sucked in,’ she said to The Express.
The real estate expert said she manages to brush off comments regarding her presenting career, but can’t help taking comments about her local business to heart.
Laura continued: ‘When it comes to my work, I sort of don’t [look] because I appreciate that not everyone will like my presentation style on TV and that’s fine.
‘You can never expect everyone to like you but I think with the shop it was different, because the shop is in my community.

‘It’s a family thing and we were trying to do the best for our community; it wasn’t about my TV career.’
In March last year, Laura took to her Instagram page where she revealed she had been struggling to breath amid her panic attack.
The TV host said to her followers: ‘Hi everyone. I was really unsure about posting this message but I feel the need to. Because something happened on Saturday night and it affected me quite badly.
‘As you are aware, Alex and I have been absolutely busting our b***s, basically helping the community. Doing what we can to use our suppliers to get goods to the community.
‘We’ve worked really hard to bring our prices down and we’ve been doing that on a regular basis.

‘Anyway, I’ve been losing my voice through stress of this situation.’
Admitting the ambulance had to be called, Laura continued: ‘And on Saturday night there were some really, really nasty people who decided to make some really nasty comments about what we’re doing on our local neighbourly websites.
‘It affected me so badly that I couldn’t breathe. I didn’t actually know what was happening to me.’
The Channel 4 presenter explained the incident felt like ‘drowning,’ which prompted her husband to call 999.
‘Please be kind,’ Laura concluded the video. ‘As I said I wasn’t going to post this because I didn’t think it was appropriate. But now I think it is appropriate.’
