His parents are ‘at breaking point’

“He’s bitten my face before,” she tells viewers before admitting that he often grabs fistfuls of her hair and yanks on it.

The constant screaming and abusive behaviour has also had a detrimental effect on the rest of the family, including his sister and dad Adrian.

“It breaks my heart that he feels like that about me,” Emma says. “It makes me question myself – I must have done something to him for him to want to do that to me.”

Emma has tried her hardest to make things better

Her remarks prompt husband Adrian to break down beside her and she turns to him to place a comforting hand on his arm.

“Things cannot carry on the way they are,” she says. “When he’s kicking off and I’m 90 per cent certain that I am going to end up hurting some way, I hate it – I hate knowing that he’s capable of it.”
