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.

Upset: The former Love Island star, 28, claims she had a ‘huge breakdown’ when she couldn’t get work in her field, saying she felt ‘absolutely worthless’ at the time
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.

Last Thursday, Georgia gave her first TV interview as her ex-boyfriend faces up to two years in prison for sharing a sex tape of her.
She appeared on Good Morning Britain and revealed that she hid herself in her room when the video appeared in the public domain in 2020.
Georgia told Adil Rai and Ranveer Singh that she felt “hurt and humiliated”, after she trusted Stephen during their relationship and criticized him for making money from their “moment of love” after he secretly filmed them having sex.
It’s already been two years since the day it happened, and to be honest I really hid myself in a room for a long time.

Everywhere I went people were talking about it. I was hurt, humiliated, ashamed, and felt so used to that you can love someone and trust them when you know that that moment you thought was a moment of love, was really their moment of making money for them.
“It took a long time for me to get to this point.”
Georgia explained that she first found out her sex tape had been posted on Stephen’s OnlyFans when someone from America sent a screenshot.
After asking fans to submit evidence, she received more than 100 emails about the sex video.

“This crime is much more prevalent than you can imagine — I’ve been getting so many letters for help,” Georgia said, offering advice on revenge porn.
Speaking to The Sun after the verdict, Georgia said she was “paralyzed with shame and embarrassment” when the video was leaked, and had “decimated my self-esteem and ability to trust”.
She said, “When I first realized the video was out there for all to see, my first thought was, ‘How am I going to tell my dad?'” “.
Imagine how embarrassing it must be for dad knowing that all his friends know that this explicit video of his daughter is out there. Someone even accidentally sent it to my uncle without realizing we were close.
I have younger brothers and sisters who were all in school at the time.
They’ve had to deal with people bringing it up with them, calling me names. People were trying to send it on social media to them. It really affected their lives as well – it wasn’t just mine that was ruined.
Georgia said the video, which was secretly captured on Bear’s CCTV system in his backyard on August 2, 2020, has been widely shared among her peers.
She said the gym went “silent” when she walked in after it was released and before she knew it the video had circulated.

“I am so grateful for everyone’s support and beautiful messages,” she said in an Instagram post. Had a much needed night out at the predetermined moment with my boyfriend to celebrate my birthday but I can’t express the gratitude for all of you and the relief I feel right now. Trust the universe.
She added, ‘I hope to take a stand that will give other men and women who have been victimized by revenge porn the courage to seek justice and most importantly show them that they have absolutely nothing to be ashamed of.
“I have felt ashamed, hurt, violated and even broken at times, but now I stand here feeling strong, grateful, and a huge sense of unity with all those who have extended a hand of support to me throughout this ordeal.”

After the guilty verdicts were returned, Peer said in court: ‘My lawyer said no…
In my opinion, it was never a fair trial, what the press said against me. I was fighting a losing battle and that is what it is.
Judge Christopher Morgan told the defendant, “Thank you for that note.”
He was released on bail until January 31, when he will appear before the same court for sentencing. He could be imprisoned for up to two years.
