Kelly Brook's traumatic childhood

Kelly Brook has opened up about "violent and horrific" memories from her childhood.

The 35-year-old actress has revealed that although she enjoyed some aspects of growing up on a council estate in Kent, South East England, she used to dread the weekends as a child as it meant going to the local pub with her parents who often got too drunk, resulting in regular fights.

She explained: "I used to dread the weekends growing up. Sundays especially.

"Sunday was pub day. We used to have a roast dinner every Sunday, and every other Sunday it would be burnt.

"My parents would spend too long in the, come home p***ed and eat the burnt Sunday lunch. Then there would be a fight and the police would be called. Or my dad would drive off in his truck."

The actress admits she remembers one occasion when the police took her father - who died from cancer in 2007 - away kicking and screaming.

Speaking in an extract from her autobiography 'Kelly Brook - Close Up', printed in The Sun newspaper, she said: "One of the worst times was when my dad came back from the pub and started throwing furniture around, while Mum and I huddled out of the way.

"My mother, Sandra, called the police and my dad, Kenneth, tried to climb out of the window to escape. He broke his leg trying to avoid them and they had to carry him down the stairs ... It was one of the most traumatic events in my childhood."

However, it wasn't just her parents' rows that Kelly had to witness.

She added: "As kids we would be in the local pub ... From a very young age I would see fistfights, shouting matches. I'd hear terrible language and see so much violence.

"I remember one bloke having his head smashed against the bar, his nose exploding and blood pouring everywhere ... It was disgusting, so violent and horrific."
