But Quinn has been battling depression after it was alleged a man in his 50s groomed her over a three-month period in December 2016.

Her mother Tracey, 39, told the Mirror Online: ‘Quinn was our beautiful 17-year-old daughter, she was kind, funny, stubborn, quirky, crazy and amazing.

‘Sadly one day, she decided that life was just too hard for her. We saw a change in Quinn after this [grooming allegations]. She just went very secretive.
