When the discussion of sexual assault came up in regards to the safety of black cabs, Brooke, 38, was quick to share her thoughts on the matter.

‘If you’ve had a few drinks I think you’re so vulnerable, I think your guard is down, you just want to get home and I think lots of young girls put themselves in that situation.’

She expressed if a woman is in need of a ride home after a night out to ‘just call somebody’ and not to get in a taxi or use a train.

When asked by presenter Kaye Adams if she’d trust her brother, who is training to be black cab driver, the model went quiet before saying: ‘Well, I wouldn’t go out and get silly drunk!’

It wasn’t long before Twitter blasted Brook for her implication that women shouldn’t get drunk unless they want to be sexually assaulted.

Adams tried to argue the other side by suggesting that ‘you’ve got to trust people.’

To which Brook replied, ‘Well, no! Obviously not!’

Today it was revealed how black cab driver John Worboys, who was jailed ‘for life’ in 2009 for drugging, assualting, and raping a number of victims, was to be set free.
