Tearful Jacqueline Jossa hits back at online trolls

Actress reveals upset at being called "fat and ugly"

Actress Jacqueline Jossa has turned off the comments on her Instagram account because she is sick of being called "fat and ugly" by trolls.

The 26-year-old star, who is married to Dan Osborne, 27, revealed: "There are certain things in my life I do not want to discuss, or really I just don't want to be told that I'm fat and ugly, okay?"

She added: "I get that on a daily basis."

The former EastEnders star started the video by telling fans "she wanted to vent", before saying: "I do think it's important to look after yourself.

"Sometimes all the comments and what people say to me get to me a little bit too much. I'm not ashamed to admit that I don't like reading horrible stuff about myself," she continued.

Revealing she'd talked to her friends about the trolling, Jacqueline – who is mum to Ella, four, and Mia, nine months – continued: "They are normal girls like me but they're not in the public eye."

You don't have different people coming up to you on the streets saying you've gone so downhill, it's no wonder your husband doesn't want to be with you.

"I said you don't have people, different people, coming up to you on the streets saying: 'You've put on weight', 'you were so much better looking before you had kids' or 'you've gone so downhill, it's no wonder your husband doesn't want to be with you'."

She added: "I get that on a daily basis and it does hurt. It's not nice. We are not in a great world and I've got children and I don't want them to grow up in this scary place.

"So I've turned them [the comments] off because I don't want to hear it. I don't think it's right. I don't think it's fair."

Jacquline said that while she was aware that she does put herself in the public eye by doing exclusive photoshoots, "why should I and other people in the public eye get absolutely slated? It's constant."

Jacqueline married former TOWIE star Dan in June 2017, with the pair splitting just a year later, before recently reuniting.

Just a week ago, their relationship was hit by rumours that Dan had kissed Love Island star Alexandra Cane during a night out in Manchester, something he has denied. Jacqueline has since been spotted wearing her wedding ring.
