GEMMA Collins has had her fair share of trolls in her time, and while she’s learned to rise above it, one particular online attacker left her fearing for her safety.
The 42-year-old icon and diva was having a clear out of her DMs when she came across one that left her terrified and calling the police.
Speaking on the latest episode of The Gemma Collins Podcast, the star explained: "I don't give a s**t what people think of me. That comes with age, when I was a bit younger I was probably a bit bothered and people used to troll me.
"I was shocked. I was deleting messages on my phone because I thought, 'new year, new messages.' Someone had messaged me saying, 'You are one ugly, fat b***h. If I see you in the street I'm going to break your jaw.'
"I did contact the police, because no one should be messaging that and clearly that person is not in a sane mind if he's messaging that to me. Who else is he messaging it to?”
Gemma also called out the social media platforms for not doing enough to combat the online hatred so many people get, and demanded they put safeguards in place.

"One problem I have got is you report all this to Instagram and they do nothing about it,” she said. "Anyone who abuses Instagram or sends a bad, hateful, insightful message to someone should be banned for life.
“They should not be allowed to use the platform. I would love to see that happen in 2023."
