“What people don’t prepare you for, is when they name you the ‘sexiest woman alive’, you have hundreds of thousands of people telling you why you SHOULDN’T be the sexiest woman alive.

“I mean it’s such an exciting thing..and I don’t think everyone should say ‘she is the sexiest woman alive’. I don’t even think that I am!

“How am I named this when Angelina Jolie exists in this world?

“So I’m already feeling a bit insecure about everything and then you have thousands of people being like ‘you’re ugly, you’re fat’.

“It’s like okay, am I?! It’s been days of feeling these intense ups and downs.”

Paige’s co-host Amanda Rose replied incredulously: “What?! I mean…no. Just no.”

Paige spoke out against bullying to Maxim after accepting her award last month.

And back in 2018, Spiranac revealed some of the hate she’s suffered at the hands of online abusers.

She said: “I’ve been bullied my entire life. I get slut shamed, I get harassed, I get death threats for wearing the stuff that I do.

“No on ever looks at the person I am or the good work that I do.

“People say these things and think they’re funny or it has no affect on that person and think words don’t mean anything but words cut deep, they really do.”

June was a packed month for Paige, who was outspoken in her disdain for players joining the Saudi-backed LIV Tour.

She blasted Brooks Koepka for leaving the PGA – and even got in a dig about his long-running feud with Bryson DeChambeau.

And she hit out at “dumb people” after her comments on a viral video of US Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick sexualising golf were misunderstood.
