“The best person in the whole world 💗.”

One fan quickly replied: “Can see where you get your stunning looks from ❤🔥😍” as another agreed and posted: “Gorgeous beautiful Mother and daughter😍😍

One then added: “Gorgeous pair ❤❤❤” as a fellow fan wrote: “Both stunners.”

MUM’S SUPPORT

Zara was praised by fans for starring alongside her mum in her ground-breaking BBC Three documentary, Zara McDermott: Revenge Porn.

The reality favourite wanted to highlight the pain and suffering that many young people go through when their intimate pictures get leaked online.

Zara, who admitted she felt suicidal when it happened to her, has used her platform to speak out for others victims of the awful crime as she herself knows how hard it is to deal with.

The first time it happened to her was when she was just 14 years old, after she felt pressured to send a naked picture of herself to a boy at school.

It then happened to her again when she shot to fame on the fourth series of Love Island in 2018.

Scenes showed Zara and mum Karen, alongside dad Alan, candidly talking about their emotions during the troubling times.

Zara told the camera: “I can’t even tell you the feeling, feeling like your parents are ashamed of you.

“How will they look at me the same ever again? It was so embarrassing. I just wanted to die.”

The star broke down in tears after revealing that her boyfriend Sam Thompson had been sent one of her nude pics on WhatsApp.

Her experience has meant that she panics when she walks into a room, just incase people have seen her leaked photos.

But the beauty hopes that the episode will help others who have been in the same boat as her.

She added: “I want people to feel empowered from this documentary and know they’re not alone, so many other people have been through this.

“I want victims to have better support. I want people to be able to start speaking about this topic openly and there to be a lot less emphasis placed on the victim in terms of ownership and accountability.”
