The star of the Channel 4 reality TV programme Made In Chelsea, Alexandra Felstead, better known as ‘Binky’ felt a backlash after it was reported that she accepted a £3000 fee for an Instagram post, promoting the children’s charity Barnardo’s.
Binky posted a photo of herself on Instagram asking people to follow the charity on the social networking site.
Barnardos said it paid the reality star to take part in a campaign to get more people to shop in its stores.
Binky has now claimed she never intended to keep £3,000 allegedly offered to her, saying that she was "horrified" at the allegations.
Just wanted to confirm that I never intended to keep the fee from Barnardos & they have retained the full 3k according to my wishes. This ..— Alexandra Felstead (@BinkyFelstead) February 16, 2015
...Had always been my intention & I'm very upset by the reports today. I'm a huge supporter of this charity & always will be.— Alexandra Felstead (@BinkyFelstead) February 16, 2015
