A MENTAL health worker has denied spending four years faking an online relationship by Photoshopping a stranger’s Facebook photos.
Jill Sharp is pictured on Twitter in a string of romantic snaps with Graham McQuet, 31, taking day trips to landmarks such as Westminster Abbey along with claims they are set to marry.
One of her friends told the Daily Record newspaper the posts were ‘all champagne and flowers’ but whenever anyone asked to meet her boyfriend ‘there was always an excuse’. But Ms Sharp, 31, from Airdrie, North Lanarkshire, yesterday said the photos had been posted by someone else and she is happy in a real relationship. ‘I’m not even on Twitter,’ she said.
Shocked Mr McQuet, who contacted police, said he had never met Ms Sharp.
He reportedly tweeted: ‘I’m apparently getting married to her in June? First I knew. What a rocket’. His fiancée Marianne Stirling, 33, said a fake Twitter profile had been set up using her boyfriend’s identity.
A woman thought to be Ms Sharp’s mother told Metro: ‘Jill has been completely exonerated by police. Jill has never met him and he’s never met her, we feel sorry for everyone involved. Someone else has done this.’
Police Scotland said ‘no criminality has been established’.
