Finally, a fourth person replied directly to the troll.

Hitting back at the comments, they said: “I need to address that no one gives a [bleep] about what you have to say!

“Alison is fine the way she is,” they added.

Did Alison react to the comments?

Alison is more than likely still buzzing from her mini holiday earlier this week to care what the haters say.

She jetted off to Madeira on Monday’s show (May 17) as restrictions on overseas travel lifted.

Sadly she only got to stay one night, but the star’s fans were most definitely thrilled she was back in time for today’s show.

After today’s phone in, where a caller was worried about their body confidence, kind-hearted Alison stepped in with a pep talk.

“Alison is such a national treasure,” said one fan. “Bless her.”

And here at ED!, we couldn’t agree more.
