The post has been liked over 40,000 times, and Silversides even made an appearance on BBC 5 Live to chat about her experience.

She claims a shower sorted out her colour, so it wasn’t all bad. She also admitted that she’s set to do it again, but record it this time for German television.

When the interviewer Peter Allen said “I’ve got a funny feeling you’ve given yourself something of an opportunity here”, implying she might not have had as much misfortune as she’s letting on.

She simply replied that she’s got three TV programmes that want her on, so sure LOOK. Anyone’s a viral star.
