During an appearance on Getting Grilled With Curtis Stone, the beauty admitted that, after initially being told that her nose was not symmetrical, she was later told that she was ‘too fat, too big, too blonde, too dark.’

‘It was definitely a stressful time, which I think in terms of food, it became very difficult,’ she added.

‘It went from that to basically, I wouldn’t say “starving myself,” but pretty much,’ she said.

‘So it was such a drastic – I had a lot of support from my mom and my dad, but it was hard.’

She added: ‘I was very lucky to get too deep. I mean I got pretty thin because of the pressure – the pressure of being sent back home … you become very disciplined.’
