Dreams do come true.
Since appearing in The Jump I have been in constant pain with a knee injury, and as anyone who has experienced chronic pain will tell you, it can take a serious toll on you both physically and emotionally.
But it is the relentless media scrutiny, the social media trolling, and the sensationalised and at times fabricated stories in the press that hurt the most.
So despite some people and even publications seemingly having an agenda to hurt me or to make me quit, I remain committed to the production, the cast, the crew, the producers, and of course the amazing audiences around the UK who have been hugely supportive.
