'Ex On The Beach' star Chloe Goodman has revealed she was assaulted by a photographer when she was just 18
Chloe Goodman was so traumatised by Jeremy Jackson groping her because it brought back memories of being assaulted when she was 18.
The 'Ex On The Beach' star, now 21, has been accused by some viewers of 'Celebrity Big Brother' of over-reacting to the incident - which saw Jeremy open her top and expose her breast - but Chloe has revealed it caused terrible memories to come flooding back to her.
She revealed: "Anyone who says I over-reacted doesn't know what it's like to be totally powerless at the hands of a man.
"I was absolutely terrified and it brought all those painful memories back. I consider myself a strong woman, but in that moment with Jeremy, I couldn't do anything.
"I was terrified. It took me right back to when it happened before. That incident when I was 18 really affected me. I thought I had dealt with it, but I obviously haven't."
The incident occurred when she travelled from Brighton to London to see someone she thought was trustworthy not long after she started glamour modelling, only for him to take advantage of Chloe and try to grope her.
She told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "When I got to the studio we chatted, then I stripped down to my knickers so he could start taking pictures.
"He was trying to get me to pose in really horrible positions. I had only just started doing it, so I wasn't really confident enough to say no.
"I obviously wasn't comfortable with what was going on and he started getting annoyed. He was touching me, trying to show me what poses he wanted.
"Then he put his hand down my knickers. I was absolutely stunned - I didn't know what to do. I was s***ing myself, but I managed to get away.
"I got my phone out and I pretended I was speaking to my mum and that she was outside to pick me up, then I ran out of the studios."
