Former Coronation Street actress Georgia May Foote has savaged a troll who appeared to fat-shame her by asking if she's "preggers".

She captioned the Instagram photo: "My one love when I am super busy is to have some ME time, nothing beats a spa day. Just booked a holiday too, will be taking this swimsuit with me! @primark #iworkwithprimark #primarkonelove #summer19."

Georgia's fans took to the comments to tell her how stunning she looks, with one writing, "Beautiful as always" and someone else commenting alongside a pair of heart-eye emojis: "Absolutely gorgeous!! WOW."

A third gushed, "You trying to give me a [heart] attack xx??" while a fourth told her, "Gorgeous and stunning as usual. You are a beautiful looking lady."

I won't let people like you make me insecure.

But one sad troll tried to fat-shame Georgia, commenting on her post: "Is she preggers, looking a bit big?"

Hitting back, Georgia demanded that the user "absolutely do one" off her Instagram page, telling him: "I am a healthy size six I will have you know and I won't let people like you make me insecure. So please keep your fat-shaming comments off my page."

Her response quickly racked up hundreds of likes as devoted fans rushed to her defence, with one writing, "Oh look at that, a 'man' offering unsolicited comments on a woman's body shape. Have a word with yourself" and another chiming in: "How derogatory towards women can you be?! Have some respect."

However, someone else spotted that the account behind the comment was a full-on troll page, informing Georgia: "He's been commenting on LOADS of celeb pages doing this. Fake page to get people annoyed... then comments that everyone is bullying him."

Georgia is currently starring in a play called Napoli, Brooklyn with co-stars Madeleine Worrall, Robert Cavanah and Laurie Ogden.
