A woman who was faced with the prospect of a forced marriage has described her terror at not being able to chose her partner to Good Morning Britain.
The woman, who asked to be kept anonymous, said she was forced to take money in an envelope from his family, who asked about her education and whether she could drive.
She explained: "Most of all, you are putting yourself in an unknown position which is always going to be full of fear and danger. In an arranged marriage you are given choice, while a forced marriage is nothing to do with your decisions."
