"Catfishing is when you're tricked into a relationship," Donovan explained. "So a girl was pretending to be a guy, and that guy was the guy I was speaking to."

Over a six-year period Donovan was lured into a relationship with a man named Campbell who would only speak to her via phone. Campbell introduced her to his best friend, a woman named Olga, who - it was eventually revealed - was pretending to be Campbell the whole time.

This isn't the first time Donovan has opened up about her relationship, writing about it in detail in her book Big, Beautiful & Sexy.

Campmates Natalie Bassingthwaighte and Ash Pollard listened on as she revealed how she fell into the trap. "It started at 16, I had never had a boyfriend, I was always a kid that was a bit different, no one was ever interested in me and this guy was telling me that he loved me."
