Linda Chung recently revealed that she and her “The Biter Bitten” co-star Shirley Yeung were chased by machete-wielding men after the actresses went out to celebrate Yeungs’ birthday 10 years ago.

The incident happened in Panyu District and it was rumoured that the stars were missing for a few hours. Shirley confirmed the incident recently and added that she was clueless about the reason for the attempted murder, reports Asian E-News Portal.

She added that Michael Tong was present and could not remember if Benny was around at that time. When asked if TVB Executive, Virginia Lok requested them to keep silent, Shirley admitted and said: "At that time, the company told not to mention it. 10 years has passed and many people surrounding us know about it. Linda has said her part and it does not matter."

Asking if they hid for 2 hours, Shirley said: "I really have no idea how long we hide there and it feels very long. It is really a matter of life and death and thank you to Linda for going through thick and thin with me together.”

She was then asked about rumours that they were both sexually assaulted and Shirley responded: “Of course not and we will be killed if it is true. They will not let us off and it is indeed a matter of life and death. It causes me to have phobia. I feel scared whenever going out at night and will observe about the sound of an open van door. I also have nightmare after the incident as feel guilty that they are celebrating birthday with me but causes injuries to the crew team. Their hands and legs are bleeding.”

When asked if she was afraid to work in Mainland China Shirley said: “ I need to go to China all the time and nothing serious happens other than that incident."
