Hear Celebrity Radio’s Alex Skeel Interview – Survived Abuse & Torture by Girlfriend…
Alex Skeel is the male domestic abuse survivor who said he was “10 days away from death” before he was helped by police and medics.
Alex Skeel, 22, from Stewartby, Bedfordshire has urged other victims in abusive relationships to speak out.
His former partner, Jordan Worth, 22, subjected him to multiple physical injuries, denied him food and isolated him from his family, a court was told.
Pleading guilty to grievous bodily harm and coercive controlling behaviour, she was jailed for seven-and-a-half years.
The prosecution is the UK’s first conviction for coercive control involving a female offender, Bedfordshire Police said.
Alex talks to us exclusively about his life and how he is now an inspiration to other people suffering and enduring abuse…

Luton Crown Court was told Worth and Mr Skeel met at college in 2012 when they were both 16.
From an early stage she had control over him, telling him what he should wear and attacking him physically.
During the last nine months of their relationship, Worth subjected her partner to multiple physical injuries, often requiring hospital treatment.
The abuse came to an end one evening last June when a neighbour called the police after hearing shouts from the couple’s home.
Ambulance staff noted injuries to his hand and burns to his arms and legs which had been self-treated with cling film.
The court was told Worth had thrown boiling water over him and that he had second and third-degree burns.
Mr Skeel said he had not been allowed to get treatment for his wounds.
“The hospital told me I was 10 days away from death,” Alex Skeel said.
