Christine McGuinness bravely revealed the moment she was raped at the age of 13, and “blaming herself” for the suffering.

Paddy McGuinness’s wife, 33, talked about her difficult childhood in the pages of her new book, A Beautiful Nightmare.

She detailed the awful evening when she drank too much at a house party before going to bed.

In an excerpt published by the Mirror, the model wrote: “Not many people know that, but when I was 13, I was raped. It happened at a house party, and as usual I drank a lot.

‘Anyway, I went up in a drunken stupor and went to bed. Not long after climbing under the covers drunk, a schoolboy came in and had sex with me, against my will. “

‘I remember saying‘ no ’and I tried to push him away, but I was so drunk that I couldn’t physically move him.

– My virginity was taken, and I failed to have that special moment with my childhood sweetheart. I think he was a stupid boy who took advantage. ‘

Christine explained that she blamed herself at the time for how much she had to drink that evening – but now knows it wasn’t her fault.

The mother-in-law said she reported what happened to a teacher and school counselor shortly afterwards, but they offered “very little sympathy”.

Instead of offering support to the teen, they suggested she “must have misunderstood it,” and focused on where she got the alcohol from.

She also revealed that the incident is one of the reasons she is “so protective” of her children Felicity, Penelope and Leon – whom she shares with husband Paddy.

Christine added that she was trying her best to “take strength” from trauma, but that there was “no denying that it was terrible”.
