A former Page 3 model has spoken of her disgust after claiming an Icelandic delivery driver who had just dropped off her shopping texted her to ask her out.

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

But the mum claims that two hours later he sent her a text message asking whether she’d like to meet him in the local 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 fearing they will be hit on by staff.

The 44-year-old said: “I was in my pajamas 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 upset about it. I didn’t see the funny side of it at all.”

Angelica lives alone with her puppy Hugo in a flat in Tettenhall, Wolverhampton, and had been getting Iceland deliveries for around a year.

She started getting them delivered to her home as she recently developed rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis which made carrying shopping bags impossible.

The text Angela claims she received

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

Angela 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.

“I thought home deliveries would be easier but I didn’t expect to get harassed.

“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 then saw that she may be able to take legal action due to the breach in her private data and employed a solicitor.

The incident took place on February 10 last year and Angelica says she now wants to make it public because legal routes have drawn a blank.

“It was in the middle of the pandemic, I was really struggling and felt very isolated from friends and family.

“This didn’t help things.

“I felt vulnerable and I didn’t expect that type of nonsense just getting my shopping delivered.

“I didn’t think he should be able to get away with it.

“I’ll never shop at Iceland again.”

It is understood the man in question is now no longer working on behalf of Iceland.

The Mirror has contacted Iceland for comment.
