A racy model who dwarfed her smaller classmates was bullied so badly in school that she took antidepressants for a decade.

Cici Anders was targeted for her “crooked teeth and big ears” – and she had her lesson books flushed down the loo.

She was also branded lanky for being 5ft 9 as a young girl and cruel classmates created a MySpace page comparing her to a rat.

But Cici is now admired on live TV after finding the confidence to join Babestation three years ago.

Speaking to the Daily Star about her horrific school days, she said: “It was daily bullying and as a result I didn’t like school and I would try and avoid going. I had my rucksack flushed down the toilet and had things thrown at me.

Cici was 15 here but dwarfed her smaller classmates 

“It was very much focused on my looks, they called me lanky and big ears.

"It wasn’t a nice time and I have tried to mentally block it out. They would take things and hide them from me and it was very much isolation tactics. Even some of them who did it were people I thought were friends.

“I even got to the point where I really wanted to get my ears pinned back. Then they created the MySpace page saying I was a rat and that was not fun.

“I had a family member get involved and have it removed. I did tell my parents about the bullying and they feel bad they didn’t do more.”

Cici, 35, from Hampshire, added: “If that young girl could see me now she wouldn’t think it was even remotely the same person. I wouldn’t recognise myself.”

A career at Babestation was once unimaginable to Cici who hated her appearance 

After school Cici worked in a bank before forging a career in insurance and data protection.

She “hated” the 9-5 slog and was on antidepressants from the age of 14 over the trauma she suffered in school.

The gorgeous brunette had a “fluid” social life and was regarded as a swinger by pals.

She eventually started webcamming on the side with a pal before joining Babestation full-time.

And Cici credits it as the best decision she ever made.

She wishes she turned to racy modelling sooner 

She said: “I wish I had done it sooner and known it was an option. I spent most of my 20s hating myself.

“At first I was like ‘god no I can’t do this’ because I had bright pink hair and was flat chested and I didn’t focus on my looks and shut myself away.

“But I feel that doing Babestation has literally made me come alive and the freedom is amazing. It gives you empowerment to control your own life and it’s liberating being able to decide your own hours and only work two or three days a week if you want to.

“I used to not know who I was as a person but now I am like this is what I do, I own this and I am very comfortable with that and I am proud of what I do and don’t shy away from it.”

She now uses her platform to spread body positivity.

And asked how comfortable she now was in her own skin, she replied: “Everyone still has things they look at and are a little uncomfortable about so I’m not going to say I am 100% over it but I am not at a point where I am comfortable with what I am and I accept it.

She no longer tries to think about the people who bullied her 

“Before certain things I didn’t like about myself would make me physically sick.

“And certain things, I know it sounds awful, but I am now in a position where I can change things. I had really crooked teeth which I was also bullied for and since doing this work I’ve managed to get clear aligners.

“It was something I always hated about myself but I could never envisage affording it so I would always keep my mouth closed when talking to people and wouldn’t smile.

“There are other things I could afford to change if I wanted to but I am trying to down the mindset of no, this is me. People pay me to see me as I am now.”
