Thanks to Mirror for reporting this story.
Sam Miller recently opened up about the abuse she had to go through in the past. She was repeatedly beaten and raped by her ex, Sean Johnstone.
The TV show host was visibly affected by the inspiring story of her fight and survival. Now, Sam has taken the brave step to open up and share her story with others, hoping she could save others from the potential danger.
"I couldn't get away but there's a lot of other people who suffer," she told Jeremy, the host. "I need to help save other women, men and children who are suffering abuse."
Sam met her vile ex-partner when they shared a cigarette outside a pub at a time when she was vulnerable. "I had panic alarms in my house and he convinced me to stay with him," she said. The abuse began almost immediately with him locking her in his house while he went out. When he returned, he walked into the house and head-butted her. "He kept going on and on. He pushed me against the fireplace. He said I was lying and I needed to admit the truth. Then the next thing I knew, I got this excruciating pain and flash. There was blood all over his face, all over the table and running down the table. But soon the abuse would escalate and plunge Sam into a truly horrific ordeal that she couldn't escape from."
The details of her account were truly disturbing and the host, Jeremy, was clearly shaken by them.
The evil Johnstone nailed the windows shut and locked the doors so Sam couldn't leave the house. "Pretty much every day he would beat me, he would rape me. I couldn't say no because if I said no he would take it anyway." Sam got pregnant after the rapes but that didn't stop Johnstone, instead he got worse. "It continued and got worse," she explained. The evil Johnstone would punch her in the stomach, even during her pregnancy, which led to the baby being born with severe brain damage.
"I have nothing to be ashamed of," she said, her voice wavering. "While I was pregnant, he raped and beat me, he made a little room up, a single room with a double mattress on the floor. "There were cameras and laptops. He closed the door behind me and told me he just wanted to talk to me. He fiddled with the laptop and the screen looked dark so I thought it was off. But he said 'don't be fooled by that. "He beat me and raped me and ripped my nightie. Hundreds of thousands of people watched that abuse that night."
Johnstone even forced Sam to have sex with his pet Rottweiler while holding a knife to her throat.
The sick dad-of-five Johnstone was jailed for 17-and-a-half years after being found guilty on all 27 counts at Teesside Crown Court two years ago. The charges included rapes, indecent assaults, and possessing hundreds of images of child sex abuse images and extreme pornography featuring animals.
