HOLBY City actor John Michie condemned his daughter’s boyfriend for ‘leaving her to die’ and claimed he filmed her after her death.

The former Coronation Street star, 62, stared at grime artist Ceon Broughton, 29, as he recalled the night Louella Fletcher-Michie (pictured) died after overdosing on the drug 2C-P.

‘I don’t know how you can say you love someone who you left to die in front of you,’ Mr Michie said in Winchester crown court.

He and his wife Carol Fletcher, 68, drove 130 miles to Bestival music festival in Dorset after Louella, 24, screeched ‘like a wild animal’ on the phone. By the time they arrived their daughter had died.

Mr Michie said: ‘Louella was very distressed. I could hear her in the background shouting things like: “I hate you” and “I don’t trust you”.’

Sobbing, Mrs Fletcher said she had told Broughton to get help ‘and that’s what I assumed he would do’.

Broughton, of Enfield, north London, denies manslaughter and supplying a class A drug. The trial continues.
