Thankfully, some of Katie’s fans were quick to jump to the star’s defence.

“There are lots of mums and daughters that love to pose, just having fun. Lighten up, there are worse things to worry about!” said one fan.

A second said: “Give the woman a break! Jealousy is a terrible thing…”

A third demanded: “Why can’t people just be kind?”

Katie’s rep told ED: “Trolls will soon be a thing of the past, Track a Troll, Katie’s petition, is going from strength to strength, gathering parliamentary momentum.

“Katie thanks her supporters for being real, ‘Teenagers all over the world can carry on pouting’.”

Katie replied: “I’ve put on weight. Anyone can speculate what they like. Pictures can be deceiving in lots of different ways.”
