But as Eve started to put her wig back on Jordan told her: “Keep it off.”

Speaking to the camera alone Eve said: “One of the main reasons I wanted to do beauty was I went through school, I was bullied and all that, ‘You don’t have any eyebrows’.

“I don’t ever remember feeling upset about it apart from now.

“It’s really hard.”
