Made In Chelseas Georgia Toffolo lived in fear of people finding out severity of acne

Georgia Toffolo has bravely spoken out on "living in fear" of people finding out the severity of her acne battle in when she was younger.

The 28 year old, who recently gave a tour of her stunning London home after moving into her "dream" riverside flat, opened up on the crippling struggle in her new ITV documentary, titled In Search Of Perfect Skin.

Made In Chelsea star Georgia explained that she used to get up extra early in the mornings to put layers of make up on in a bid to cover her acne.

"I had such a horrendously low opinion of myself. It was like hatred, anger, why, why do you have this?" she explained in the documentary.

The reality star went on: "Going back to that time I actually feel quite upset because it is something that I don't really talk about now."

"I always assumed the acne would go as I got older. It didn't and things became even harder when I found fame on a reality TV show," she continued. "I was living in such fear of someone finding out how severe it was."

Georgia, who recently ended her Shein contract after charities branded her "exploitative", added: "I was getting up three hours early – layers, powder, more concealer, constantly faking the confidence that I didn't have inside."

The blonde beauty previously discussed her battle with acne during an appearance on ITV's Lorraine show, where she told the TV presenter: "I don't think I would have had the confidence to do my career because of my acne before."

Georgia went on to share that her acne began when she was 13 years old, adding that she's been "open about it and gone to great lengths to hide it."

After Lorraine, 63, confessed she had no idea of Georgia's struggles, the star shared: "It's wonderful to hear you nothing of me and acne together. When you suffer with something like this your acne is all-consuming."

And in July last year, Georgia also shared her joy at getting supportive messages from fans as a result of being so honest about her acne battle.

Speaking to OK!, she shared: "I have been so honest about my skin because I think it is quite rare to see anyone on TV with acne. I remember when I was growing up and Victoria Beckham got attacked because she had a few spots. I remember thinking, 'Thank God, even Victoria Beckham gets it.'

"I did a feature on This Morning about my acne a couple of years ago because I was getting a bit of trolling about my spots.

"It was upsetting me and so I took my make-up off and said, 'This is my skin, I know it can be better but if you want to say nasty things, carry on as it doesn’t phase me.'

"Since then, I get the most amazing messages and I reply to every single person who comments on my social media."
