It’s been a tough year for the starlet and she recently revealed that she missed out on TV projects and wasn’t considered by producers after Stephen Bear’s ex shared a sex tape of her online.

Georgia claimed she had a “tremendous breakdown” when she was unable to obtain work in her field, saying she felt “absolutely worthless” at the time.

Her ex-husband Stephen Behr, 32, was found guilty of revealing private sex photos and movies after CCTV footage of the pair having sex in his garden was uploaded to his OnlyFans page. He now faces two years in prison.

Speaking after Stephen’s conviction, Georgia claimed it was deemed a “red flag” by TV producers after the footage was uploaded to OnlyFans two years ago.

She told the BBC: ‘My agent had talks with brands, but when they looked at who they wanted to book for a certain job, because of what happened, I was just a red flag.

It was really hard and there were a few times I had massive meltdowns, TV has always been my passion and [producers] Just can’t count me.

The former TOWIE star compared how she felt after sharing the sex tape online to grief, saying her feelings would come in waves and she’d break down in tears.

She added, “Something like that makes you feel completely worthless – people look up to you and have sexual gratification from you that is totally out of your control.”

Georgia went on to say that she wanted to speak in schools about her experience so that young people would understand that revenge porn can affect people’s lives.

Her latest comments come after Peer was found guilty of two counts of disclosing private sexual images and films with intent to cause distress, and two counts of voyeurism, at Chelmsford Crown Court.

Georgia bravely waived her right to anonymity to testify in Beer’s previous trial, before a jury found him guilty of posting the sex tape on OnlyFans.

What is dementia? A killer disease that suffers from memories

global concern

Dementia is an umbrella term used to describe a group of progressive neurological disorders (those affecting the brain) that affect memory, thinking and behaviour.

There are many different types of dementia, the most common being Alzheimer’s disease.

Some people may have a combination of dementias.

No matter what type is diagnosed, each person will experience dementia in their own unique way.

Dementia is a global concern but appears most often in wealthier countries, where people are more likely to live to an old age.

How many people are affected?

The Alzheimer’s Society reports that there are more than 900,000 people living with dementia in the UK today. This is expected to increase to 1.6 million by 2040.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia, affecting between 50 and 75 percent of sufferers.

In the United States, it is estimated that there are 6 million people with Alzheimer’s disease. A similar percentage is expected to rise in the coming years.

As a person ages, the risk of dementia increases.

Diagnosis rates are improving but it is believed that many people with dementia remain undiagnosed.

Is there a cure?

Currently there is no cure for dementia.

But new medications can slow its progression, and the earlier it is caught, the more effective treatments will be.
