It comes ahead of her TV documentary Revenge Porn: Georgia Vs Bear where she breaks down in tears after learning the court case has been delayed.
She sobs: “I just don’t know what to do anymore. It feels like my life has been on hold for a whole year.”
Today Georgia appeared on the BBC’s flagship Sunday with Laura Kuenssberg programme.
Georgia said she wanted to do more in politics – saying: “I’ve been really enjoying making a difference.”
However, she drew the line at the prospect of becoming Prime Minister when it was raised by the host.
Laura, 46, said: “We’ve talked a lot about the Online Safety Bill which is a huge bit of legislations going through Parliament at the moment.
“But I want to ask you, you were a reality star. You were someone who was in TV presenting. But a terrible experience has turned you into a campaigner and an activist and clearly a very effective one.
“I wonder what’s next for you? We talk to politicians every week and they’re not always that direct and not always that clear and getting their message across. You are.
“What’s next? Fancy getting into a bit of politics?”
Georgia replied: “I think at this stage I do. It’s definitely not something I anticipated happening in my career but I’ve been really enjoying making a difference – so yeah.”
Laura asked: “Prime minister?” but she laughed: “We won’t push it.”
Elsewhere in the interview Georgia admitted that going to testify against Bear in court was “scarier than I thought it would be”.
However, the star said she “got that power back” by finally telling her story.
The reality TV favourite added: “It just took away an innocent sort of, spark I always had. I was trusting.
“It lowered my self worth, the way I value myself, especially in relationships. But I took that power back.”
