Abused By My Girlfriend

Abused By My Girlfriend is a BBC film that details the remarkable story of Alex Skeel, a 23 year old man from Bedford in the United Kingdom who found himself caught in an abusive relationship with his girlfriend Jordan Worth.

Through a combination of interviews with family members, police offices and police interrogation footage we start to realise to what extent this young love descended into violence. Not only do we hear of how Jordan (Alex’s girlfriend) affected Alex but we also start to see that his family and friends were also deeply affected by her behaviour.

Police described this case as one of the most extreme cases of domestic violence they had ever witnessed and the doctors who examined Alex’s body confirmed that he was only days away from death.

In April 2018, Jordan was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison. She became the first female in the UK to be convicted of coercive and controlling behaviour.

  1. Thank you for sharing your story Alex. I have just exited an abusive relationship which was very similar to this just without the physical violence. I have had to exit this relationship and your story gives me strength to fight to be with my recently born son. I wish you well and many years of happiness with a woman who is real and really appreciates you. I think you are a solid guy and loyal to your commitment to this woman clearly trying to help her and loyal to your children for staying by her as long as you did. With respect and admiration i send this message.

  2. So lucky the kids are with him now. Horrible what he went through. She seems like a sociopath. I wonder what in her life made her become such a violent person…
