'Ambitious' model, 24, killed herself after anxiety struggle as family pay tribute to 'beautiful' daughter | The Sun

AN "ambitious" model killed herself after struggling with anxiety, an inquest has heard.

Amy Gregory, 24, was found dead at her home in Barry, Wales, on January 2.

The young woman, who worked on Babestation, suffered with a history of anxiety and depression.

Emergency services were called to the scene two days after New Years Eve where she was sadly pronounced dead.

Family and friends have described Amy as "strong willed" and a "witty, smart, and beautiful young woman".

Her mum Karina paid tribute to her following the tragedy.

She said: "Amy was a smart, ambitious, witty young woman with a gentle heart and a lovely laugh.

"At 24, Amy had experienced more than most at her age.

"She was a resilient, strong, and beautiful girl who had overcome a lot of struggles and made the most of her short life.

"Her family will miss her dearly. We will miss her laugh, her perfect smile, her cheek, her humour, and her bubbly personality.

"Although we will never get over losing Amy we will carry on together and keep her memory alive in our home and in our hearts.

"We hope that wherever Amy is now she feels at home, safe, loved, healed, and free."

A fundraising page has since been set up which has raised over £6,500.

A post on the page said: "Amy was a witty, smart, and beautiful young woman and she was very loved by her family and friends.

"She was strong-willed, ambitious, and resilient. Her laugh was loud, her smile was wide, and her heart was big.

"She loved animals and she doted on her two fur-babies Bennie and Blanca.

"Amy worked as a glamour model and she was a much-loved colleague to her work family at Babestation TV where she was known affectionately as her work alias Chloe Love.

"Chloe had many fans and people who cared for her and her bubbly personality brought a lot of light to what can often be a dark industry.

"Unfortunately that light wasn’t always bright enough to shine for Amy all the time and she often struggled with bouts of deep depression."

You’re Not Alone

EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn't discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It's the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.

Yet it's rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let's all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You're Not Alone.
