The TV presenter is shocked by the fake Facebook account.

Zizo has labelled the updates on the account "revolting and disturbing."  An unknown person has used Zizo's name and picture to lure people with extremist religious updates and pictures.

"This account has been responsible for posting graphically explicit images of sickly people and their genitals and has been making prayer requests on behalf of people," she explained.

Zizo added that she does not want to be associated with the lewd content on the page and for it to taint the reputation she's worked hard to build.

"I’m quite disturbed by it because I know how easy it is for people to believe things posted on social networks to be true. I've never conducted myself in such a despicable manner and advise those who want to be linked to my real account to look up MissZizoBeda- a true reflection of the content I've shared with all my supporters," she added.

The matter has been reported to Facebook and hopefully the account will be closed soon.
