“It was one of the most horrific experiences of my life,” Becky admitted on Loose Women.

“Coming out, to be told what was in the media and social media about me. It was heartbreaking for me, absolutely heartbreaking.

“I struggled to deal with it, and I’m still struggling with it.”

Becky’s oldest daughter, Megan, was with the star when she got told what had been said.

“I said to her, ‘This is what Mummy’s been made to look like, and you know that’s not true.’ She said, ‘I know you’re not what everyone is making you out to be’,” Becky told the Loose Women.

“I think it’s good for her to have seen that side of things and how things can be portrayed, and that not everything you see is true.”

Becky also said she’d spoken to Iain since leaving the jungle to clear the air.

“Iain and I had so many deep conversations and we’ve spoken since we came out. There’s no hard feelings,” she said.

“He spoke today to put the record straight and say there was no bullying.”

“I’m adopting #mardyvardy,” she said.
