She wrote: "This vile excuse of a man just had his penis pushed up against me while on the overground train from London Bridge heading to Elmstead Woods.

"I though[t] it was a bag until I felt him heavy breathing down my neck. I am appalled and calling the Transport Police when I get off!"

In a separate tweet, Natasha added: "Honestly I am shaking a feel so violated now! But more than anything I am so angry!!

"I had the opportunity to take his picture before he left the train - this has to stop happening to people!"

The British Transport Police later replied to Natasha's tweet, providing their contact details for her to report the incident.

ED! has contacted Natasha's rep for further comment.

Natasha, who has four children, often shares her thoughts on social media and recently wrote a blog post about how she struggled with postnatal depression and feeling isolated as a new mum.

She shares son Josh, 16, with ex Fran Cosgrave, son Harry, 14, with dancer Gavin Hatcher, son Alfie, eight, with Riad Erraji and four-year-old daughter Ella Rose with Five singer Ritchie Neville.

Last month, the star celebrated her little girl Ella Rose's fourth birthday.

Proud mum Natasha wrote: "What a day! Wishing my beautiful little girl a very happy 4th birthday!! A huge thank you to everyone who shared it with us, she’s had the best day ever!"

A few days earlier, her son Alfie walked his very first fashion show for London Fashion Week.

Gushing over her little boy after his big day, Natasha told fans: "Spending one on one time with Alfie has been amazing. My little superstar has done so well today.

"Being in a very unfamiliar environment but holding his own, being polite, always smiling even when he feels nervous. You’ve done us all proud son."
