My body would shake and my eyes would roll over. I called a friend to come over because I knew something wasn't right."

She'd been on a night out for her sister's birthday.

Blood tests later revealed she'd been given a cocktail of drugs, including GHB, rohypnol and ketamine, that could have killed her.

There are few official statistics on drink spiking in the UK

GHB and rohypnol are both common date rape drugs.

According to charity DrinkAware, they are colourless, tasteless and leave the body quickly, making them difficult to detect.

Chelsea has no recollection of how it happened or when the chemicals might have been put in her drink.

Their investigation is on going.
