Zara McDermott ‘wanted to die’ after discovering ex leaked her explicit images
Love Island star Zara McDermott has spoken out about how damaging it was to have intimate images of her shared without her consent.
This comes as her BBC documentary titled Zara McDermott: Revenge Porn aired on BBC Three last night, with it explaining how she found out about the leaked photos the day after she left the Love Island villa back in 2018.
The 24-year-old Made In Chelsea starlet sobbed as she relived the moment after a press officer told her the images were circulating online, which she believed had been leaked by an ex-boyfriend during her time on the show.
She said: "I can't even tell you that feeling, to feel like your parents are ashamed of you.
"It was so embarrassing, I just wanted to die."
Zara, who joined the E4 reality show with her boyfriend and regular cast member Sam Thompson, admitted that she still panics when she meets new people, adding that she was reserved when the pair met on their first date fearing that he had already seen the snaps of her.

Sam later added in the documentary: "I'd already seen the photos without knowing it was Zara. It surfaced on a WhatsApp group that I was on.
"I didn't know it was her until she mentioned it. I was like 'Oh god, I've seen that.'"
Zara, who joined Made In Chelsea in October 2019, revealed she has quit the show after the release of her new documentary.

The former government adviser told The Sun's TV Mag that she's left but that her partner Sam will still remain in the show.
She said: "I would like to do more documentaries – that's my goal for this year and next year. No more reality TV, it's hard on the soul."
It's no surprise Zara is distancing herself from reality television, as her personal life was ripped to shreds by viewers last year.
