EuroMillions winner Gillian Bayford’s torment over child abuse allegations during sinister hate campaign

LOTTO mum Gillian Bayford has told of her torment after facing child abuse allegations in a sinister hate campaign.

The £148million winner, 47, said she was probed three times by social workers and a welfare charity following anonymous complaints about her parenting.

Slurs were also plastered online and posted to the tycoon’s property business during the two-year vendetta.

But Gillian, of Dundee, insisted she was desperate to put the ordeal behind her — and her conviction for threatening ex Gavin Innes, 45.

Breaking her silence, the mum of two said: “I had no idea what I was going to be hit with when I woke up every day.

“It could be social services turning up at my door or hateful stuff being posted through my office front door. It could really be anything.

“All I could do was keep my head held up high and keep walking.

“I knew there was nothing for them to investigate and I was cleared every time.

“I was happy for them to do everything they needed.

“But I want it to go away so I can get back to normal and get on with my life.”

The cruel messages started appearing online weeks after Gillian split with domestic abuse campaigner Gavin in October 2017.

Social services visited her home two months later on Christmas Eve as it emerged a complaint was made about her fitness as a mother.

Two investigations followed but ended in August 2018.

Gillian’s lawyer Murdo MacLeod QC blamed Gavin for the hate campaign and called the probes “distressing and completely unfounded”.

He told Dundee Sheriff Court on Tuesday: “It’s clear a vendetta is being pursued against Mrs Bayford.”

Gillian claimed she reported the abuse to cops but nothing had happened.

And she blasted Gavin after the court was told he bragged to mates that the whirlwind fling with his old school pal was his “pension fund”.

Gillian told The Scottish Sun: “He had a motive before meeting me.

“I think it all comes down to money. He will do anything to make financial gain.

“But if that’s how he wants to live his life then let him get on with it.”

Gillian was due in court accused of assaulting Gavin in her home and 4×4 motor.

But the trial was scrapped when she pled guilty to the lesser charge of threatening and abusive behaviour.

Gavin admitted making complaints about Gillian when they were together but denied the online vendetta.

We told how he claimed his lover flew into rages and used her mammoth fortune to control him.

Gillian scooped the EuroMillions jackpot with hubby Adrian in 2012 but they split 15 months later.

She is now wed to convicted fraudster Brian Deans.
