Loose Women star Denise Welch pleads for help as she’s targeted by scammers on Gettr app

Fans were quick to show support

Denise Welch has revealed she’s fallen victim to scammers on new app Gettr.

Gettr is a social media platform and microblogging site founded by Jason Miller, a former Donald Trump aide.

The profile shows a headshot of Denise that was later changed to a picture of the star lifting up her top to flash her bra.

However, the Loose Women favourite has issued a plea to fans and bosses at the site, insisting that she’s been scammed and someone is impersonating her.

“Dear @GETTRofficial. Someone has set up a Gettr account taking my profile from here. Please look into this for me,” she pleaded.

Later, she added to fans: “Someone has set up a fake account pretending to be me on @GETTRofficial. Please do not interact with this account!!! I’m not on @GETTRofficial yet. I’ll let you know when I join.”

How did fans react to Denise’s post?

Fans of the Loose Women panellist were keen to help the star out.

One said: “Reported, blocked and shared. I did suspect this yesterday because of the lack of a red tick. You should join GETTR though – it’s buzzing.”
