The presenter claims she still has "life-long scars, physical ones" from the incident, which has been kept quiet by show bosses.
She also told of how the show "changed her life", as the Mirror reports.

Saira told The Sun : "Unfortunately legally I can't go into much detail about it because it's still ongoing.
"I was left with life-long scars, physical ones. That's very hard to cope with.
"I am a very fit individual and to go onto a show and then have experienced what I did, I was in real shock.
She added "the show was great in supporting", but that it has "gone beyond that" and "gone onto something a bit bigger than that".
Saira appeared on the show, filmed on the remote island of Raasay in Scotland, alongside a number of other celebrities including Kerry Katona, Ulrika Johnson and Wes Nelson.
She quit Loose Women after five years to appear on Celebrity SAS, saying that the show "changed her life".
"I did take big drastic steps", she said – adding: "Going to that level of extremity really made me realise I've got to stop. I don't need to keep proving myself, but just enjoy what I've got and celebrate what I've achieved.
Minnow Films, the production company in charge of filming Celebrity SAS has been contacted by Daily Mirror for comment about Saira's claims.
Kerry Katona was frozen with fear in the show's first episode as she tried to cross a ravine on a couple of precarious poles during a terrifying exercise.
The former pop star is hoping to change people’s perceptions of her by taking on the challenges set by Ant Middleton and his team.
However, she was later furious with herself, calling her effort "pathetic" and was seen weeping over not being able to complete the task.
Sitting with the instructors, she reflected on “being stuck in the past”, telling them how she has struggled to get over her mum’s suicide attempt, being given drugs at 14 and her abusive ex-husband George Kay’s death.
Katona, 40, is a regular on reality TV but viewers saw her in a different light as she was seen battling her demons.
Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins airs on Channel 4, Sunday at 9pm.
