Pamela Anderson has called for an end to reality television.

The actress, who has appeared on reality TV series such as Big Brother, Dancing On Ice and US show Dancing With The Stars, posted a series of messages on Twitter sharing her thoughts.

"Did I enjoy being on a reality show?" she said.

"Please no more reality shows or reality stars ... even France is polluted with them - it's an epidemic of ugliness, superficial competitions, desperate and exploitive - for the artist."

She went on: "You are usually bullied into doing TV like this by agents fighting over commissions - you're left without any great amount of joy or money- you feel used, dirty, and with no feeling of accomplishment.

"Unless of course - you attempt to find any meaning or redemption by donating all to charity. It's how I forgave myself."
