Chloe Ferry was left angry and upset after her Celebs Go Dating co-star Wayne Lineker received brutal trolling following their fake engagement stint.
The 25-year-old couldn't hold her tongue any longer and took to her Instagram Story to hit back at nasty bullies who had falsely labelled the Ibiza club owner, 58, as a "paedophile".
Speaking to fans, the Geordie Shore star seemed to be noticeably upset as she fumed that Wayne didn't "deserve the abuse and awful words" that had been circulating online about him.
The reality star told culprits to swiftly nip it in the bud after becoming fearful for the businessman's wellbeing and how he might be "coping at the minute" with the "vile" abuse.
Chloe hit back, beginning: "Some of the stuff that I have had to read about him is disgusting. I can't believe the stuff he is getting called.
"Paedophile is such a strong word to call someone it is absolutely disgusting that he is getting called that when all his friends and family have to read that about him.
"Wayne is one of the most amazing people I have ever met in my life and he does not deserve the abuse and the awful words that are getting said about him I am disgusted having to read that."

It is no secret that Wayne likes to date younger women and he has always been open that his preference would be a lady in her twenties or thirties.
Addressing a recent conversation with Wayne, she added: "I was on the phone to him the other day and he was getting upset, like I know he would never show that on social media but imagine him having to read those comments when he has such a big family, it is vile just vile.
"It really upsets us how people can still be allowed on social media when they have been that vile and nasty."
Now fearful for Wayne's wellbeing she continued: "Some of the stuff that has been said to Wayne, I don't know how he is coping at the minute, I can't believe some of the stuff I have read.
"A lot of people don't realise how seeing these comments can really sit with you as a person."
Chloe could easily resonate with the bar owner as she explained her own mental health had suffered as a result of awful keyboard warriors.

After having surgery to change her body image, Chloe decided to open up about going under the knife but as a result came up against digital haters who made her life hell.
She went on: "Two years ago I had depression from people bullying us online after I admitted I had surgery.
"Wish I never did now, but I was such an honest person I wasn't going to lie. I was in such a dark place. I woke up one morning and I didn’t want to get out of bed. I went on holiday with my ex and I didn’t want to leave the hotel room."
"Enough about me, I feel like people, I don’t understand how this is still allowed to happen."
The Instagram influencer concluded: "On a brighter note Wayne is doing his little podcasts he is trying to make a difference on social media to stop the abuse. We all need to stick together and this rule needs to be put in place."
