Eva is well known for helping other people to overcome past trauma and phobias, but today she revealed she had been through a horrific experience herself. Eva spoke out about how in a previous relationship she had been abused both physically and mentally by a former partner. The This Morning star detailed how a previous partner had smashed her window screen while she was in the car, leaving her to drive home covered in broken glass. A tearful Eva also spoke to Holly and Phil about "the look" her ex-boyfriend would give her, which she knew meant she needed to "rein myself in and be subservient." While out with friends one night Eva ignored "the look" and her partner smashed her head off the bar, forcing her to go to hospital with her injuries.
And when Eva was speaking about how her speech and movement was affected by the attack, because her brain was injured Holly starting to silently cry and tell her how brave she was. Eva said it was when her ex came round to her home and punched her father, breaking his nose, that she knew things needed to change and she started to feel "pity" for her boyfriend. This Morning viewers were also affected by the interview, taking to social media to praise Eva's bravery in speaking out. (Image: ITV) Ashley Gardner said: "Omg Eva!!
