Xtra Factor host tries to ignore the bullying comments

Caroline Flack has admitted that a ‘voodoo doll’ article written about her in a One Direction fan magazine was extremely distressing.

The TV presenter used to date 1D heartthrob Harry Styles, 18, and she has frequently been the target of negative comments by the band’s huge fanbase.

But the cruel feature, which depicts Caroline as a voodoll doll with pins stuck in her, was particularly difficult for the star.

Im very aware about the voodoo doll article in a certain magazine and have been for some time,’ Tweets Caroline, 32.

It was one of the most hurtful things ive ever read. But thankyou for all the nice supportive messages!

I dont take notice of nasty things written to encourage bullying x

The abusive article labels Caroline an ‘old woman’ and makes nasty comments about her appearance, including comparing her to a goat, claiming her hair is like ‘the ground at a petting zoo’ and accusing her of having crow’s feet.

Luckily the Xtra Factor host can laugh about some of the remarks and has had a lot of support from her own fans.

Ive never had so many nice messages in one afternoon!!! Me and my crows feet are thankful. XCaroline tells her Twitter followers.

Oh and my neice Willow could write a more intelligent article..and shes seven…rant over… I got some serious blonde hair to sort out..eek

A One Direction spokesman has confirmed that the magazine is not an official band publication.
