‘No idea how they got in there or who they are or their plans. I didn’t think this stuff happened I’m so naive hey. Everyone’s ok though.’
It remains unclear how the pair entered or fled the bus.
The 32-year-old – real name Amy Louise Billings – clarified her remarks after a backlash from some people that her situation did not compare with the plight of those attempting to smuggle themselves into the UK.
She added: ‘The situation is scary. I feel for them, a very dangerous way to chase a new life.
‘It’s heartbreaking but the bus is also my home when I’m on the road and I didn’t expect to find people hiding in it. Please don’t twist my words x’

There has been a spate of migrants crossing trying to cross to the UK from Europe, with many trying to navigate the Channel by boat.
Last week British and French authorities unveiled a new £6million action plan to stop illegal immigration.
Home Secretary Sajid Javid and French interior minister Christophe Castaner vowed to increase joint co-operation after a rise in the number of migrants attempting to cross the ‘dangerous shipping lane’ in small boats.
