A PrettyLittleThing model is a convicted drug dealer jailed for having cocaine and heroin – and has spoken of her experience.

Rebecca Vieira, 25, was sentenced to 20 months for possession with intent to supply.

The Instagram influencer, who has 160,000 followers, told Sunday People she was pressured into carrying the drugs by an ex.

"I kept quiet and took the punishment because I felt I had no other option," she said.

"Thankfully, I was able to get away from that situation safely but I’m still having nightmares.

“I’m a stronger person now and ­encourage people to seek help when they need it rather than staying trapped and manipulated."

Rebecca, who appeared on MTV’s Celebrity Bumps while pregnant, became a social media star after serving half of her sentence.

In 2019, she was prosecuted at Guildford crown court under her birth name, Rebecca Marques, after police targeted county lines drugs gangs.

The court heard she was arrested after being stopped by police on the A23 at Merstham, Surrey, in September 2017.
