Holly Gazzard’s family wanted to go on This Morning’s sofa to share their heart-breaking story about their daughter Hollie Gazzard, who was brutally murdered in broad daylight by her ex-boyfriend, Asher Maslin, 22, in February 2013 – whilst she was at work at a hairdressers.
In a story that shocked the nation, CCTV captured Maslin trading in a DVD player to get cash to buy a 12 inch kitchen knife before heading over to Hollie’s place of work and stabbing her to death. He was sentenced to life imprisonment at Gloucester Crown Court.Despite losing their beloved daughter in the most tragic of circumstances, the Gazzards are now campaigning to raise awareness for other domestic violence victims. They’ve since set up their own charity, the Hollie Gazzard Trust. We are all wearing the charity’s pink and purple wristbands to show our support. We continue to work with the Gazzards and Victim Support to help the family continue to raise awareness through the media.
Plus, there are usually a few celebrities milling around in the green room, which is always exciting! We’ve met Keith Lemon, Rylan, Ollie Murs and a number of soap stars to name a few! Everyone who goes on the show comes down to London the day before, stays in a hotel and gets their hair and make-up professionally done too!
Before you go on the show, one of the researchers runs through the questions the hosts will ask on TV, so you will know what to expect and how to answer them. And of course, we’ll be there to advise you every step of the way. It really is a great experience.
Most importantly, appearing on shows such as This Morning has enormous reach, so if you are sharing an important story that can help or inspire others, or raise the profile of a charity or cause, it really is worth doing.
