However, on Thursday (January 14), Lucy responded to the messages after receiving support from her fans.

She said: “I just wanted to say a thank you to all those of you who have messaged me lovely DMs after I posted what those two horrible trolls wrote to me.

“One of the main reasons I wanted to put it out there was because I think that a lot of people are scared of being too open and honest.

“You’re sort of putting yourself out there for people to say really horrible, nasty, personal things.”
