This Morning's Josie Gibson quits social media after 'disturbing and unhealthy' comments from trolls

JOSIE Gibson has revealed she's taking a break from social media after receiving 'disturbing and unhealthy' comments from trolls.

The This Morning roving reporter took to her Twitter on Thursday and revealed she is turning her back on social media for six days.

Explaining her reason for her break, Josie penned: "Right I am off my phone and social until the 13th Jan so if I don't reply I'm not being rude.

"I just keep finding myself on my phone and reading into all the negativity and it's not healthy for anyone.

"I actually feel like AI I'm on my phone so much it's disturbing" [sic].

In light of her announcement, fans of The mother-of-one, who shot to fame in 2010 when she won Big Brother, commented in their droves and shared messages of support.

One follower penned: "Oh Josie please dont let the keyboard warriors get to you. YOU are amazing and always make people laugh with your humor.

"Block the users hun. Stay amazing and fabulous as always Face throwing a kiss❤❤❤".

"Don’t listen to those who spout their venom while hiding behind their phones," another wrote.

"You make the nation smile – take time to make yourself smile again x".

A third shared: "Enjoy your break ignore all the negative and venomous stuff people spout on here, your great on TV very smiley and funny".

Elsewhere, the TV star has been open about her changing weight, and her “zero s***s given” attitude makes her extremely relatable. 

In October, Josie hit out at a body-shaming troll who called her weight gain "absolutely vile".

In 2012, Josie famously transformed her body with diet and exercise and shifted a huge 6 stone in weight and went from a size 20 to size 8.

Then in 2016, she had surgery to remove 6lb of excess skin left from the staggering weight loss.

However, since giving birth to Ronnie has a realistic approach to her size.

The 35-year-old star was clearly shocked by the cruel comment, pointing out that there are much more important things in the world than her body.

But one Twitter user cruelly lashed out, writing on the social media site: "I don’t mean to be rude but @Josiestweet is absolutely vile.

"It breaks my heart when I look at how fat she has got again."

Josie retweeted the message and graciously added: "But you are being rude, so you do mean to be rude.

"Don't let my weight gain break your heart, honestly there is so many more things in the world to care about that really do matter."
