EastEnders actress Katie Jarvis has "ruined" Michelle Antonio's life, the devastated mum has claimed.Michelle, 49, claims she has since become too stressed to work and is suffering from panic attacks and flashbacks to the racial abuse she endured as a child.During a day out in July 2020, Michelle visited a cafe in Southend, Essex, just two months after the murder of George Floyd in the US and the Black Lives Matter movement.Michelle and Katie came to blows when the 30-year-old actress who played Hayley Slater branded Michelle a "black c**t," before exclaiming "black lives don't matter", before explaining "I'm a celebrity". Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, the single mum said: "How can racism like this still be going on in the 2020s? You think things have changed, but nothing has."Michelle from West London says she is now seeking therapy, has since left her job as a college assistant, demanding an apology from Katie and believes she received a "slap on the wrist".She has also called on TV bosses and believes Katie mustn't appear on television again.Katie faced being jailed for six months but was subsequently handed a two-year community order but Michelle feels as though she has been "wasting her time".Katie admitted to racially-aggravated harassment of Michelle and common assault on a club bouncer she spat at two hours later.At the time of their incident, Michelle and her family were sat outside an eatery when Katie and her two pals approached.She told the publication: "Katie shouted 'black lives don't matter, I'm a celebrity – on and on and on, she called me and my daughter black c***s."I was so shaken up and angry, frustrated, upset, embarrassed.

Ofcom rows in the show’s 15-year history.Diversity sparked a huge reaction with their Black Lives Matter performance in 2020 which contained an anti-racism inspired dance which depicted the death of George Floyd in police custody, with a white actor kneeling on Ashley Banjo's neck.Many praised Diversity for highlighting the issue in their powerful and emotional routine, but complaints soon began pouring with Ofcom receiving a staggering 24,500 complaints."Take politics out of family entertainment," blasted one furious viewer.However, the performance received the full support of ITV and the watchdog alike.A spokesperson for Ofcom said: "We concluded that the programme did not raise issues which warranted investigation under our broadcasting rules."We carefully considered a large number of complaints about this artistic routine, an area where freedom of expression is particularly important.”Ashley's fellow BGT judge Alesha Dixon furiously defended the dance - which she said had moved her to "floods of tears".The broadcasting watchdog has received thousands of complaints about judge Amanda Holden’s sexy frocks during numerous episodes of the ITV series.Her super low-cut gown during a live show in 2017 received a massive 663 complaints - making it the most complained about moment of the year at the time.
