‘Growing up, my sister became famous, worldwide famous, when I was very young,’ Jamie Lynn said.

‘I’m so proud of her, love her to death, but I don’t know. Sometimes I feel like I don’t really have anything for myself,’ she continued.

In a confessional, Jamie Lynn said she was ‘extremely proud’ of her sister’s success, but also wanted to carve out her ‘own identity’.

‘I struggle with self-esteem all the time,’ Jamie Lynn admitted.

They were put through demanding training exercises led by Directing Staff (DS) agents Rudy Reyes, Mark “Billy” Billingham, Jason “Foxy” Fox and Remi Adeleke, an elite team of ex-special forces operatives.

Spice Girls singer Mel B said she had been living in fear and hoped the course would help her regain her own power.

‘I ended up being in a very horrible abusive 10 year relationship. I felt worthless, you feel helpless. I’m facing huge fears. I’m just going to bring out that inner person that I hope isn’t dead and gone,’ Mel said.
