The I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here star made her name by competing in beauty pageants both in the UK and around the world.

Whilst competing in South Korea, Amy claims was sexually assaulted by a pageant organiser when she was just 18 years old.

The 24-year-old was asked to travel to the country under the impression that the competition was a real event, but it turned out to be ‘not what it claimed to be’.

Amy told the MailOnline: "I ended up flying over to a pageant that wasn't what it claimed to be. I was sexually assaulted out there.

"There was one occasion where a pageant organiser knocked on my door and tried to pull my top down. That was the worst thing that physically happened to me."

She added: "I was aware of some scandalous incidents where girls were told that if they met certain judges for sex they would win. I was the only girl who stood up and said I would not be part of this."

Fair play to Amy for speaking out about her terrifying ordeal.
