Everything We’ve Learned From Georgia Harrison’s Documentary

It's worth a watch!

Former Love Island star Georgia Harrison’s ITV Documentary was released on Monday 20th March and the response from viewers has been overwhelmingly positive.

The documentary followed Georgia as she navigated becoming a victim of image based sexual violence and included footage of her throughout dealing with her case against her ex Stephen Bear.

Former TOWIE star Stephen, was found guilty of voyeurism and two counts of disclosing private sexual photographs and films in their trial and he is currently serving 21 months in prison.

This comes after footage of them, that Georgia didn’t know was being filmed, made its way onto Only Fans and WhatsApp without her consent.

Since the release of her documentary, Georgia has taken to Instagram to thank her followers for their support. She wrote, “So grateful for all of your messages, still going through them now! If you missed my doc is available on @itvxofficial.”

Georgia chose not to be anonymous in this case as she wanted to be able to speak out about her experience and hopefully help other women in future. Her documentary depicts the tough times she went through after the private footage was released and during the trial and the seriousness of the crime at hand.

In one scene Georgia says, “I don’t know what to do anymore. I’ve had my dignity and my privacy ripped beneath me, I’ve had my life changed forever.

“I’ve lost self-respect, I feel guilt, I feel ashamed… and he is just laughing, joking, having the time of his life.”

Viewers can also see the text and voice note chain that occurred when Georgia confronted Bear about the footage.

Bear is seen to deny his involvement in a series of voice notes, but Georgia told the camera, “He was just trying to manipulate me to feel sorry for him which in the past has worked.”

She stuck to her word and took him to court. After Bear was found guilty Georgia can be seen speaking to the press saying, “Today’s sentence is a vindication of what I’ve been put through and sends a clear message that the police and courts take this matter very seriously.

“I want all other victims of this crime know that I stand in solidarity with them and I have absolutely no regrets on waiving my anonymity.

“I hope this puts anyone off committing this sort of crime and I hope for anyone else who’s been a victim of it, it gives them some sort of justice. Thank you so much for all of your support and that’s it.”

Viewers have been praising the documentary on Twitter and sharing Georgia’s hope that it will help others in the same situation, or prevent it from happening.
