‘Mortified’ mum discovers ‘creep’ husband’s spy cam filming her as she showered

A mum was stunned to spot a camera in the bathroom filming her as she showered.

The Blink camera which the family use to keep an eye on their tortoise had been turned on to record her in the nude while her husband was with their kids.

The mum-oft-two shared her horror on Mumsnet for advice and was swiftly urged to contact the police following her husband's "creepy" filming.

When busted, he apparently claimed he was just curious as to what his wife got up to in the shower, Daily Record reports.

The woman said: "I'm not really sure what to do. I've name changed because I know some people on here. Husband is working from home and I'm a SAHM to our 5 and 2 year olds. Things have been a bit tense recently, maybe because it's summer holidays and we're all under the same roof a lot, I'm not sure.

"Anyway, today I asked him to sit with the kids for 20 minutes while I grabbed a shower and got dressed. I suggested he maybe caught up with some work emails so he doesn't feel like he's wasting time, as he moans usually and then tacks the time onto the end of his work day.

"Off I go to shower, go upstairs to dry off etc and get dressed. We have a pet tortoise who lives in a tortoise table. I bought a Blink camera so I could see if she was ok while we were out (I'm a bit of a nervous first time pet owner).

"While I was moisturising, naked obvs (I wasn't taking ages over it, and I have really dry skin, I can't skip it!) I noticed the blue light on camera was which I know means the live view has been activated by the app because of when I set it up. I just froze for a moment and then took 2 massive steps out of shot. I'm absolutely mortified.

"I calmly got dressed and asked him to delete the Blink app. He acted all innocent and then when I asked why he spied on me, he said he was just checking what I was up to.

"The camera used to just show the tortoise table and a tiny bit of the bed, I was getting ready on the other of the bed so it must have been adjusted to cover that area, it's a manual adjust one. I just don't know what to think. Who spies on their own wife? AIBU (Am I Being Unreasonable) to be feeling really angry and violated?"

Fellow mums were quick to blast the woman's husband as a 'creep' for the stunt.

One said: "Did he move the camera so it was pointing at the whole bed? Very unsettling and I would not be happy!"

Another agreed: "I would be f****** livid. Your husband is a creep. I think that might be it for me, my trust in him would be shattered."

Another added: "That is really unacceptable and shows a creepy level of pre-planning. Can the footage be saved or is it live-feed only?"

Another woman said she should consider calling the police and questioned whether he was even safe to be around their children. She said: "Yikes. Yeah, that's that over with. Dude's a creep. What he did is illegal.

"Honestly? I'd be considering the police. They can examine his computer for evidence he's been recording and uploading, and even if they don't find anything, they can still caution him for basically committing a sex crime against his own partner."
