Internet trolls cruelly target the pregnant singer

She’s one of the most beautiful women in pop, so how anyone could target a blissfully pregnant Frankie Sandford over her weight gain is beyond us.

But, in a sad reflection of the bullying Kim Kardashian‘s also faced during her pregnancy, internet trolls have taunted the Saturdays singer over her blooming figure.

Frankie, 24, who’s engaged to footballer Wayne Bridge,  32, had asked on Twitter: ‘Anyone know how to relieve water retention?!’

But she became the target of sick jibes after being pictured in a billowing black and purple top at the Capital FM Summertime Ball last week.

Among the sick bullies, one user Tweeted: Someone keep her away from the pies, please.’

Michael from London added: ‘You can tell Frankie‘s naturally pear-shaped.

‘She must’ve been starving herself before she got pregnant.’

A so-called ‘fan’ said: ‘I thought it was a new band member.

‘Last time I looked she was a skinny little person.’

Meanwhile a Birmingham Tweeter added: Frankie‘s going to be HUGE.’

The backlash is particularly cruel as the star, who’s been open about her battle with depression, has admitted she’s worried about her figure.

‘I’m having to get used to my body changing,’ she says.
