Faria Alam, who shot to fame three years ago for having a short-time affair with former England football coach Sven Goran Eriksson, and recently being exposed as a high-profile call girl, has reportedly taken refuge in The Priory, a London-based hospital treating adults and adolescents for mental health problems

The Asian beauty is said to be suffering from deep depression and has seen a psychiatrist, after she was caught on camera while dealing with a ‘decoy customer’.

According to her friends, she collapsed and was admitted to the clinic in Roehampton, in South West London, after telling an undercover reporter she charged 8000 pounds for three-hour romps.

One friend said: "To say Faria is devastated is a huge understatement. Her life after Sven has been all about her image. She thinks no one will touch her with a barge pole now."

Fraia, the ex-Football Association PA, who had a fling with flop England coach Sven three years ago, was filmed negotiating a huge fee at a hotel in London’s Mayfair.

Now 40, she reportedly said that all women secretly want to be hookers, offered kinky "party tricks" and boasted of a lesbian romp.

Faria cashed in on her infamy last year by going on Celebrity Big Brother and has made regular TV appearances. But a pal said: "Now she’s blown it."
