Price disclosed the incident to OK! magazine after reading rumours that her boyfriend, Alex Reid, appeared in a rape scene of a porn flick.

The Daily Express quoted her as saying: “I was appalled by the headlines claiming he’s [Alex] taken part in something which glorifies rape. This is completely untrue.

“Rape is a subject very close to my own heart. I was raped when I was younger, more than once. Needless to say, I’d never be associated with anything or anyone so sick.”

The 31-year-old said she was not the only one who suffered the trauma of rape.

She added: “I’ve never talked about this before, but I feel I have to now because I was so hurt by these accusations that I would not take a subject, which affects so many women, seriously.

“Someone who was close to Alex was also raped and he is as horrified as I am by these claims. I urge any woman who has been affected by rape and needs help to talk to somebody they trust about it.”
