A Place in the Sun: Danni Menzies worries she’s ‘gone too far’
Danni Menzies, 32, has bravely spoken out after she went through a terrifying bullying ordeal when she was at school. The A Place In The Sun presenter lived in fear of her tormentors in her younger years, due to their “very scary” physical and verbal attacks.
The Channel 4 favourite recalled: “I got bullied quite badly at school.
“It started as soon as I went to high school, with one girl in particular who was three or four years older.
“She used to wait in the corridors with her friends and kick me until I was on the floor.
“They threw me down the stairs a few times.”

Danni admitted she was also subjected to death threats from one of the bullies.
She continued: “After school she would be in her boyfriend’s car chasing me and shouting she was going to kill me.
“Sometimes I would walk to my granny’s house and would have to hide in shops. It was very scary.
“Eventually she left school but her younger sister was in my class. Then she and a group of her friends started.
“Mum and dad always said, ‘Never let them see you cry,’ and I never did.”
Danni’s frightening experience at school prompted her parents to move her to Strathallan Independent School.
However, Danni insisted in a candid interview with The Sunday Post that she wouldn’t change anything about her experience.
She added: “I wouldn’t change anything that happened because it toughened me up. Those bullies did a lot for me.

“I haven’t really thought about them since or what they would think if they saw me on TV.
“But what I would say to anyone who is being bullied is let it drive you and show them what you can do in the future.”
Elsewhere, the blonde beauty recently took to Twitter to speak out on her now ex-boyfriend and former soldier Simon Moloney.
After the A Place In The Sun host spotted an article about her “partner”, she revealed to her fans they are no longer an item.
The headline she saw read: “A Place in the Sun: Who is Danni Menzies’ partner?” and went into detail about Simon.
In view of her 15,000 followers, the star was quick to address her current relationship status.
She wrote: “We didn’t make it past August,” followed by a laughing emoji.
