“Psychologically it just really affects your self-worth,” said the former Love Island star, who has waived her right to anonymity.

“You are in a moment with what you think is love with someone who you have known for a long time and you really trust.

“And really the whole time they were just having sexual intercourse with you to put a monetary stamp on you and to sell you on the internet.

“And that really affects the way you value yourself.”

The star, 28, said Bear’s conviction had been “everything” to her.

“I don’t think I let myself comprehend how much was on the line until now and in hindsight if he had got not guilty I would have lost everything,” she said.

“I was silenced for two years and I would have been silenced for the rest of my life and I would have been cancelled because everybody would have believed that I had something to do with that awful video.”

Harrison has made a documentary about what happened.
