A TikTok family whose house was wrecked in a suspected arson attack were sent '95 takeaways and prostitutes' by 'jealous haters' before the fire, according to neighbours.
CCTV footage shows two suspects setting fire to a Ford S-Max on the drive outside the semi-detached home of The Smithy Family in Welling, south east London, between 10.30pm and 11pm on Wednesday night with a milk carton filled with petrol.
Nick Smith and his family, who have 2.6 million followers on TikTok, believe their home was set alight because of their new found social media fame. He says they will never be able to live in the house again.
Mr Smith claimed yesterday that the family had received threats online, numerous takeaways delivered to their house, along with prostitutes sent to their door.
Today, next-door neighbour Lisa, 50, a concierge, backed up his claim, saying: 'One day, they got 95 takeaways delivered and then they had prostitutes or escorts showing up at his house.'Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

Lisa said: 'I've known them since the day we moved in nine years ago.
'I was passing the kids over the back fence because they couldn't get out the front door.
'They have two daughter Isabella, nine, Amelia, six, and a little boy teddy who is just six weeks old.
'Bells was crying, carrying Teddy in her arms, so that will stick with her life.
