Beauty and the Geek host Sophie Monk broke down in tears as a ‘beauty’ spoke of her depression after losing a baby last year. 

Sophie, 42, was visibly moved as ex-NRL cheerleader Bri Auty, 30, spoke of her devastation at losing her baby while eight weeks pregnant.     

‘Twelve months ago in my life, my heart was shattered,’ she began. 

‘I can’t begin to explain that when my world was crushed, it was crushed. And it hurt for me to be awake some days,’ Bri continued.

Tears streamed down Sophie’s face as Bri explained how she struggled to regain control of her emotions and move on

‘I was so insecure and my wall was so up,’ Bri added following the devastation. 

Bri went on to explain how meeting geek Chris was a turning point for her.

‘… he slowly he kept chipping away [at my walls] and he created this safe space for me,’ she said.

Bri called Chris the ‘kind, soft, gentle soul’ she ‘needed’ in her life.

The former cheerleader said it was during a home visit that her mother noticed a remarkable difference in Bri following her Beauty and the Geek experience. 

‘I know that when I went back home with Chris, one of the things my mum said to me before I left… She hugged me and she said, “Bri, I got my girl back.”‘

‘For my mum to say that, that speaks volumes to me.’ 

Bri went on to thank Chris for ‘nurturing her’ during the show.

Sophie, clearly moved by Bri’s honesty, went on to commended her for being such a brave woman.

‘Thank you so much for those amazing words. Thank you. Honestly, that was beautiful. And well done, Bri. You’re such a strong woman,’ she said. 

Bri finished by saying she thought she was going on the show for someone else, but she ended up going on it for herself.   

‘I didn’t realise I needed this experience so much. I thought it’s all about helping someone else rather than me,’ Bri finished.
