(CNN)Set politics aside for a minute. Ignore whatever laws are on the books. Hit snooze on any moral or religious alarm bells ringing in your head. What you think or feel about Georgia becoming the latest US state to sign a bill that would ban abortions at six weeks -- or as soon as a fetal heartbeat can be detected -- is of no consequence for this story.

A CONTROVERSIAL new ITV drama about Milly Dowler's killer Levi Bellfield will be airing this Sunday – and it will make painful viewing for one woman. Bellfield’s former girlfriend, Joe Collings, 47, was routinely raped, beaten and psychologically abused by the man who fathered two of her children. The evil killer was back in the news last weekend after it was claimed he was part of a child grooming gang that has never been brought to justice. Bellfield - currently serving life for the murders of Amelie Delagrange, Marsha McDonnell and 13-year-old Milly - will be thrust even further into the public consciousness tonight when a TV drama portraying his crimes is aired.

She said: "I knew it was coming, but when I first saw the advert I just thought 'here we go, it's all going to … [Read more...] about Levi Bellfield’s ex reveals his house ‘was like a nursery’ because he had so many 15-year-old girls there – and blasts new ITV drama ‘glorifying’ him
