Mylene Klass has recalled the horror of her drink skyrocketing during her Hear’Say days and has warned her teenage daughter of the dangers to watch out for.
TV presenter turned pop star Mylene Klass has revealed how she couldn’t get out of bed after her drinks spiked in a nightclub.
Mylene, 44, said she felt suddenly ill due to an incident in a club in the 2000s during her Hear’Say days.
Writing in her new life skills book ‘They Don’t Teach This in School’, the mother-of-three said she is grateful she is not alone.
“I knew exactly how scary it could be when it happened to me when I was in the band,” she explains.
“We were in a club and I remember a friend reaching out his hand asking if I was sick. It was my last memory.

“Thankfully I was with friends who took care of me. One of the girls brought me back and put me to bed.”
Mylene, who shot to fame at the age of 23 with Kym Marsh and Suzanne Shaw in the reality show band Popstars, added: “I remember her leaving and seeing the door open.”
“I couldn’t even get out of bed to close it. It took 24 hours to recover.”
The star recently discussed the risks of a spike with her eldest child, 14-year-old Ava.
“This can happen to mature, permissive women as well as to young, unwise girls,” she said.
“You have to give yourself the best chance.”
The star’s tips for her daughter include bringing her drink to the ladies’ room, never accepting a drink from a stranger, or leaving someone else alone.
Meanwhile, former Love Island star Sharon Gaffka also shared her horror story of being overrated during a daytime lunch with friends.

Sharon was completely shaken by the ordeal and finally decided to share her story to raise awareness and share solidarity with other women who have gone through a difficult experience.
Cherishing her terrifying experience, Sharon explained that she tried not to tell people for a long time because she felt ‘shy’ that it happened to her.
“I’m so ashamed of what happened to me and I never intended to talk about it. There are a lot of victims of shame and I don’t want others to judge me. But I have this background now. with about 90% followed by young women, and last year there were stories of spikes due to injections,” explains Sharon.
“I think if I could normalize our story sharing, more women might feel empowered to move on and then we could really challenge the perpetrators.”
