Mrs. Mears, who lives in Wolverhampton and dreams of becoming an underwear model, was left two years ago with a broken nose and a bone sticking out of her gums.
And a doctor told her that if her ex-husband had hit another head, she could have died.
& # 39; I had a broken nose, a bone sticking out of my gums and my body was covered with bruises, even after a week they still came out, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; I also needed an MRI scan to check for bleeding in the brain, I was really lucky. & # 39;
After an evening celebrating her husband's birthday, the couple went back to their hotel room, where they were the only people on the entire floor.
Later in the night he started a rant of insults before slapping her on her left cheek with such force that she almost fell off the bed, she recalls.
Mrs. Mears, who lives in Wolverhampton and dreams of becoming an underwear model, got a broken nose and a bone sticking out of her gums two years ago.
& # 39; I went flying off the bed, but I managed to stop myself. I said "never do that to me again", so then he hit me and I ended up on the floor where he kept beating me, kicking me in the head and dragging me around.
& # 39; It was the first time he hit me in the face. Normally he hit me somewhere where I could hide it.
& # 39; I tried to shout for help, but we were the only guests staying on that particular floor that night. & # 39;
When she tried to beg him to stop, he looked at her as & # 39; he was dead behind his eyes & # 39; before continuing the violent attack.
& # 39; I was lying on the floor, looking up at him and begging him to stop. I looked into his eyes and there was nothing. It was as if he was dead behind his eyes and that is the face that haunts me.

& # 39; I couldn't sleep for months, every time I closed my eyes, I saw that face. & # 39;
Mrs. Mears was beaten unconscious and felt & # 39; numb & # 39; when she woke up hours later.
& # 39; I couldn't move, but I knew he would kill me if I stayed there.
Het It felt like an angel was lifting me up, somehow I found the power to grab the blanket, wrap me around and drag myself out of the room.
& # 39; I finally got into the elevator and out of the building where there was a group of men trying to help me. I begged them not to come near me and they called the police for me. & # 39;
The following night she was visited by a police officer and decided to report it.
Mrs. Mears has now found love with someone else and enters Miss Swimsuit UK to reach the finals and increase her confidence.
& # 39; My ex always told me I was a bum. I am really grateful to Verena and Miss Swimsuit UK for giving this opportunity and the life I have, because I never thought I would even have half of it, ”she added.
