She said:  "To see them [the video and pictures] on Friday morning was horrifying. My heart was broken.

"My love was going to everyone in Japan. It is something so hard to imagine without going through. When a natural disaster happens it's amazing to see the unconditional love coming from every direction."

The 31-year-old beauty also opened up about her own fight for life, recounting the day she held on to a tree as her fiance Simon Atlee was swept away.

She explained on Good Morning America: "You feel powerless, the more you fight, the more you lose energy and the chance for survival.

"The best thing you can do is try to stay calm. That can save your life."

The star will take part in the 12th series of Dancing with the Stars alongside Kendra Wilkinson, Kirstie Alley and former boxing champion Sugar Ray Leonard.
