Molly-Mae Hague harked back to the traumatising moment a talent scout told her she wasn't the right shape to be a model.
The Love Island bombshell's dreams of becoming a model were initially crushed flat when the agent criticised her legs and her figure.
But it's Molly-Mae who has come out on top as a successful influencer and Pretty Little Thing ambassador with five million followers after rocketing to overnight fame on Love Island.
Looking back, she now has confided in her fans about suffering a devastating blow to her confidence at a young age.
The Instagram sensation, 21, was filled with hope when she was talent-spotted on the train, before the very same model agent rejected her for not having "the right shape to be a model".

She told fans: “I have a funny story that happened to me when I was younger – it’s not funny at all actually, it still traumatises me to this day.
“Basically I was on a train and I got scouted – so embarrassing – this woman from this modelling agency, she scouted me and was like, ‘please can you come in tomorrow, we’ll have a meeting and we’ll potentially sign you’.
“So I was absolutely buzzing, like I always wanted to be a model when I was younger, definitely not anymore. Yeah, so I went into London, cancelled work for a day, went to the meeting with this woman.
“She got me to stand in front of her and some other people and do like a little twirl in all black clothing, no make up. She literally took one look at me and went, ‘yeah, no, sorry, made a mistake, you’re not the right shape to be a model’."
With her confidence and experience behind her now, the Pretty Little Thing ambassador admitted she would have reacted completely differently to the talent scout's criticisms.
However, at the time, she had her heart set on getting into the modelling spheres.

When she asked what wasn't right about her, the talent scout delivered another blow saying her legs looked "different" on the train.
Molly-Mae confessed the whole experience was "awful".
She said: “And I literally was traumatised trying to be all polite, whereas if it happened now it would be a different story.
"But I was like, ‘can you give me constructive criticism, like what’s not, what wasn’t right about me?’ and she was like, ‘you just looked different on the train, your legs looked different’.
“Honestly, it was awful… it was so, so, so bad."
