An Irish pageant star has been caught up in Turkey after reports of a coup.
Judy Fitzgerald, who previously held the title of Miss Bikini Ireland, was in Istanbul on holiday when the dramatic situation unfolded.
Taking to her social media accounts the qualified nurse shared a terrifying video from Istanbul, showing citizens walking past armed with guns.
“The government has fallin and has been taken over by the military here in Istanbul,” she wrote.
“Airports and everything have been shut ? What is the world coming to.”
In comments under the video Judy added that electricity was going in her area.
“Just took that video the airports shut duno how I will get outa here electricity and everything is going,” she wrote to a friend.
While the model has been on social media many in Istanbul have said the internet isn’t working properly.
