On Tuesday, she took to her Instagram stories to share the news alongside a smouldering snap as she wore a shorts suit and gazed over her shoulder. 

Shortly after, she posed up a storm for four stunning snaps in a tiny black crop top and jeans while letting her hair fall in loose lengths. 

In March, it was revealed that Zara will give an ’emotional and raw’ account of her experience of revenge porn in the BBC documentary. 

She revealed she will open up about the traumatic time in an upcoming show for BBC Three – recounting the time she left Love Island in 2018 and learnt that an ex had leaked naked images of her online.

According to Zara, she now feels ‘confident enough to properly speak out’ about her personal experiences of revenge porn.

She wrote: ‘This has affected my life and me as a person tremendously, and for the first time I’m confident enough to properly speak out and share my story.

‘I am nervous to share these intimate details with the world but I hope that it will only make positive change and lessen the blame on us victims. The documentary will be out in a few months time on BBC Three. Thank you so much.’

 Of the upcoming show, Fiona Campbell, the Controller at BBC Three, said: ‘We’re grateful to Zara for sharing her story with us and hope it will make a difference to young lives around the UK.’

Back in September, Zara joined domestic abuse charity, Refuge in Parliament Square to lobby for changes in rules about revenge porn.  

Refuge is calling for anyone who threatens to share intimate photographs of another person without their consent to face prosecution. A law against disclosing intimate photos came into force in 2015 but the charity wants to see this strengthened.

Zara joined Refuge ambassador and domestic abuse survivor Natasha Saunders and Refuge policy manager Cordelia Tucker O’Sullivan outside Parliament.

She is joining charity officials in calling for an amendment to the Domestic Abuse Bill when it returns to the House of Lords in the coming days.

According to Refuge data, one in seven young women have been threatened this way despite the law against revenge porn – often by current or former partners.

The charity says victims face barriers to justice because the act of making these threats is not yet a criminal offence.
