In the clip, Melissa explained: "Some c*nt gave me a spoonful of what they presented as a rose made from a napkin on a night out.

"It wasn't just to be nice though was it? It was a distraction to spike me and I ended up in hospital."

Melissa shared photos of the rose as well as her hospital wristband after the terrifying ordeal.

And other TikTok users were horrified, with one person commenting on the video: "This is vile! I'm so sorry this happened to you."

Meanwhile another said: "Girls can't do anything without being put at risk so sorry that happened to you. I was spiked not long ago and now I'm paranoid."

And a third added: "On a uni [Facebook] group and not one single girl on there either 1. Hasn't been spiked or 2. Hasn't been out with mates and none of their friends got spiked."

Another said: "I've been spiked by the literal bartender. We can't do anything or go anywhere."

It's widely believed that the number of drink spiking cases in the UK is actually much higher than reported, so it can be difficult to measure just how many instances of drink spiking takes place.

However, back in 2018, results from a series of Freedom of Information requests indicated a 108 per cent increase in the number of police reports since 2015.

The Metropolitan Police recorded the highest cases, up 74 per cent between 2015 and 2017. Meanwhile, Greater Manchester Police had a rise of 178 per cent, jumping from 37 in 2015 to 103 in 2017.
