A charity donations page has been set up to pay off the costs of a young woman who became the victim of a 'pull a pig' prank. 

The page, which has thus far received more than £200, firmly supports Sophie Stevenson, saying "sad" Jesse Mateman had "ignited an army of angry people" against him.

In an interview on ITV's This Morning, the 24-year-old said she had been left feeling humiliated after she had gone to Amsterdam to meet the 21-year-old Dutchman.

The two had met on holiday in Barcelona and had remained in contact, with Stevenson saying they had discussed a long-term relationship.

After she'd flown out, spending around £350 in total for flights and accomodation, he is reported to have messaged her to say she had been "pigged", included several emojis, and had told her it was all a joke. 

'Pull a pig' refers to groups of men going out and attempting to pick up a girl they deem to be the most unattractive. 

A lawyer for Mateman had previously said the claims made by Stevenson were false and there had been no relationship between the pair.

Now, Mateman's represenation admitted the 21-year-old had a one-night stand.
