Josie Gibson has been forced to defend herself after a vicious troll attacked her on Twitter.

The presenter, who recently revealed she and her deaf brother were turned away from three restaurants, hit back at the troll who body shamed her.

The troll wrote: "I don't mean to be rude but @josiestweet is absolutely vile #thismorning.

"It breaks my heart when I look at how fat she has got again," the cruel troll said.

Not taking the comment lightly, the 35-year-old responded directly and told the troll they were being rude.

She said: "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," the mum-of-one hit back.

Josie's fans took to the comment section to defend the Big Brother winner and reassure her about her weight.

"My jaw literally dropped and I gasped when I read that tweet! I think the absolute opposite… I and think you look amazing josie!!!! It must be so hard not to retaliate but please do not reply to these people!! they are very sad unhappy people," one person wrote.

Another added: "I think you look amazing and stunning, take absolutely no notice, people can be so unkind and gobby. Just jealously and negative – well done on rising above it, not worth your time or effort."

A third said: "Ignore the haters… So rude… Why do people think its okay to write things like this? Would they say this to someone in the street? No.. Just not okay."

Josie's trolling comes after she revealed her anguish over deaf brother Harry not being able to communicate when he is wearing a face mask.

The presenter explained how Harry relies on lip reading to be able to communicate with people.

Speaking to Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford on This Morning on 22 October, Josie said: "We are so privileged to still be able to communicate even when we wear a face mask, but imagine going into a shop and being totally cut off from everybody in that shop?

"[People with hearing difficulties] not only use lip reading to communicate but they use this whole bottom part [of their face] as expression, so they don't know when people are trying to talk to them or when people are trying to get their attention," she said.
