Love Island beauty Anna Vakili has revealed she had a secret abortion when she was 21, which she attributes to missing out on sex education.
The 31-year-old TV star, who had an abortion 10 years ago, claims her parents banned sex education at school.
Chatting on her and her sister’s podcast, sisters in townwhich she hosts with sister Mandi, Anna revealed: “I’m really afraid to open up about it, but I think it’s important to do it because I’ve learned from my own mistake.
“And if other people can learn from my mistake, then that’s the best thing that can come of it.
“When I was younger – about 21, I had unprotected sex – I don’t know what I was thinking. I wasn’t thinking and ended up getting pregnant.”
She added: “Obviously I was very young and not ready and had an abortion.
“At that age you don’t think what can happen and I deeply regret that I became pregnant.
“I didn’t want to be pregnant and have an abortion — I don’t like that. So if you can avoid it – do it.”
She then shared an insight into how she practices safer sex today, adding, “I’ve been practicing safer sex ever since and I’m on the reel now.”
Anna then went on to reveal that she was pulled from sex ed class at school because her parents didn’t sign a consent form.
“At school, teachers sent a letter home for our parents to sign to say if it was okay for us to take sex education, and my parents didn’t sign it.
“And it was the most embarrassing thing of all because the teacher pulled me out of class when they were having sex ed.
“I was the only person apart from another person from Asia or the Middle East. I will never forget that – it was so traumatizing.”
This revelation comes a month after Anna opened up about her nightmarish butt lift surgery and how it almost killed her.
Anna and her sister Mandi spoke on their podcast last month about how they flew to Turkey to have the butt lift surgeries done and revealed they were trying to be frugal and do it on a budget.
Anna said on the podcast, “A Brazilian butt lift is a fat transfer where you take fat from other parts of your body and put it in your butt.

“When we first did it, it was really good. We went to a really good place in London, respected surgeon, recovery… good. Minimal scars.
“I don’t regret the first one. It made me feel better, it gave me more confidence.”
Anna then said, “We went too far when we did it again.”
Mandi chimed in, saying: “We ended up like Frankenstien. The second time we went we wanted a cheaper option so we went abroad. Do your research – if it’s cheap, it’s cheap for a reason.”
Explaining the situation further, Anna said: “The second time we did it, we went abroad to Turkey and me and Mandi thought we were going to die abroad. It was very scary.
“Within a day or two after our surgery, we were on the verge of passing out in a hotel room as there was blood all over the hotel room.
“It was like a crime scene, we both collapsed in the hotel room. Bandaged, bleeding… it was like something out of a horror movie.”
