“I get stupid [bleep] like that. If people start trolling Sophie or the baby a lot, that is something I will have to get my head around.”

He added: “Unfortunately that’s the world we live in. You can get 100,000 lovely messages, but you’ll remember one nasty one.”

Jake said he understands “if people don’t give a [bleep] about my life” but insisted they “don’t have to comment on it”.

It comes after Jake announced the arrival of his first child.

He said on Instagram: “I am so overwhelmed right now, but first I want to say Sophie you’re amazing and watching you during all this made me love you even more.

“I promise to be a great dad, I will make mistakes but promise I won’t make the same one twice.”

Meanwhile, Jake also admitted he has “such a mixture of feelings” because he’s “so happy” but also feels “a little sadness” that his late dad and brother won’t get to meet Leo.

On Saturday, the former X Factor star revealed his little boy Leo had met his big brother, Sophie’s son Freddie.

Jake told his fans: “Fred came back from his dad’s to meet his little brother, he was so beautiful with him it was so lovely to see!”

He added: “Fred’s already got a great dad but I would hate him ever feeling left out so gonna try and include him with everything baby wise.”

He told HELLO! magazine: “I’m a bit nervous about not knowing what to do. Babies are so little and vulnerable.”
