Actress Denise Welch gets grief on Twitter

Denise Welch is distraught after receiving hate messages from a Twitter user.

The internet troll told the Celebrity Big Brother winner he or she hopes Denise ‘slits her wrists’ and calls her a ‘disgusting wh*re pig’ and ‘scummy bully sl*g’.

‘Please stop being horrible to people you don’t know. You’ll be much happier x,’ Denise, 53, Tweeted in response.

‘By the way, my work have reported you to the police and they’ve traced you. Have a good day.’

Denise wept as she announced on Loose Women last week that she’d split from husband Tim Healy, 60, after 23 years.

She’s now reportedly asked ITV bosses for next week off to help her cope with recent dramatic events.

Denise has seemed tired and emotional all week,’ a Loose Women source tells the Daily Mirror.

‘So it’s best for her to spend time with her family and have a break from it all.’
