She was a jet set model earning an astonishing £30,000 a week, but an addiction to cocaine destroyed Sophie Anderton's career and almost cost her her life.
Her drug-fuelled and violent relationship with the former Chelsea footballer Mark Bosnich came to a head last October when he allegedly beat her up. He was arrested but she failed to press charges.
In her first television interview, Sophie tells Fiona Bruce how she is attempting to turn her life around.
"I just met somebody who happened to be a million more times more self destructive than me.
"I was six and a half stone when I went into rehab......I don't recognise the girl that I was."
The 27 year-old, who shot to fame as an underwear model, also lifts the lid on drug taking and sexual exploitation in the fashion world.
Also in the programme, we find out why one of the best loved symbols of the British nation - the Bulldog - could become the next victim of the Eurocrats.
Many of our neighbours across the channel have accepted European legislation that restricts the way certain dogs can be bred, including the bulldog.
The aim is to make the pets healthier. Inbred dogs can develop breathing difficulties and may no longer be able to give birth naturally.
But the breeders say they have their animals' best interests at heart.
We also have an update on the disturbing Real Story investigation into the failure of police and social services to enforce laws designed to protect children from sexual exploitation.
Real Story: BBC One, Monday 14 June 2004, 1930 BST and live on the Real Story website.
The programme featured an interview with the charity 'Crop' which helps parents trying to stop men having sexual relationships with their underage daughters.
