Caroline Flack has a new stalker.
The 'Xtra Factor' star has complained to the police after a One Direction fan sent her a menacing picture of herself holding a six-inch knife, in an apparent threat to Caroline who previously dated the group's singer Harry Styles.
The teenager, using the twitter username @harmonynostrils69 - which has since been deleted - send the picture to Caroline on the micro-blogging site and the frightened TV presenter forwarded it on to police.
A friend told The Sun newspaper: "Caroline was shocked" while police have said "we're investigating".
This is a new blow for Caroline after a man accused of stalking her for three months was recently arrested.
The 39-year-old man - who has not been named - has repeatedly turned up at the 'Xtra Factor' presenter's workplace to give her gifts and try and touch her, and following his arrest he has been bailed until August when he will undergo further questioning by police.
Caroline is said to be hoping she can now move on with her life.
A source explained: "It's been a pretty stressful past few weeks for Caroline. But now the police are involved, she hopes the matter will soon be resolved and she can move on with her life."
The man is believed to have followed Caroline's whereabouts on twitter and sent her letters before he turned up to an 'X Factor' audition in Manchester.
