"It's a carving knife. We literally only got it today. It's really f****** sharp."

The jury which heard the case did not believe her, as she had implicated herself with a Facebook post saying, "He p***** me off sitting on Facebook, completely blanking me when I'm talking to him."

She stabbed Damon, 24, as he checked his messages at their shared caravan in Heysham, Lancs.

In her text message, she wrote, "Crying myself to sleep for the second time this week and it's only Wednesday. Thanks Damon. I'm so angry and hurt I honestly want to f****** stab you."

The jury heard that the couple had met at Palmer's hair salon the Costa Del Sol in Lancaster when he went in to get a haircut but they had a stormy on-off relationship.
