Jacqueline Jossa has sent a message of praise to Zara McDermott after the release of her documentary on revenge porn.

Zara, 24, was a victim of revenge porn after she left the Love Island villa and found that her ex-boyfriend had shared naked photos of her online.

The reality star first experienced the effects of revenge porn at that age of just 14 when nude images of her spread around school.

She has since become an advocate for the crime, which is now recognised as a sexual offence, and filmed a documentary for the BBC.

Speaking to the BBC about the incident when she was aged 14, Zara said: "I got to a place where I was suicidal. That's how bad it was.

"Knowing that when [the images] came out, I was actually going to be bullied more – that was something I couldn't bear. Id say it does still affect me to this day."

Former EastEnders star Jacqueline has now heaped praise on the Made In Chelsea regular, who quit the show earlier this week, and urged fans to "watch and learn" from the documentary.

"I think it's brilliant that people are shining a light on it. I think that everybody should be watching stuff like this and learning.
