Rebecca Adlington was reduced to tears on 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' after a beauty debate with Amy Willerton.
The Olympic swimmer admitted to feeling "insecure" about her looks because models make people feel like they should be "stick thin and beautiful" all the time.
'Emmerdale' actress Lucy Pargeter told Miss Universe Great Britain winner Amy that there was a lot of pressure on young girls to look a certain way and the stress of it made her "ill" when she was a youngster.
Rebecca added: "And it's also making me very, very insecure that I have to look a certain way.
"For me, I was an athlete, I wasn't trying to be a model, but pretty much every single week on Twitter I get somebody commenting on the way I look."
The blonde beauty then rushed off and cried before being comforted by Lucy and 'EastEnders' star Laila Morse, who told her she was "beautiful."
Laila said: "Much better than her [Amy]. A hundred times, do you hear me?"
Rebecca later said: "It's just one of those things.
"[Amy] doesn't know what it's like on a day to day basis. She's stick thin, she's got these push up bras that make her boobs seem massive. She's stunning."
