But the 38-year-old, who plays Michelle Connor in the ITV soap, said she would not be forced to quit Twitter because she was "too addicted".

Marsh was devastated when baby son Archie died when he was born 18 weeks early in 2009.

She said: "I've had all sorts on Twitter - death threats, people calling me a home-wrecker. But the worst things someone said was, 'Remember when your baby died and I laughed?'.

"Messages like that are just sick and you have to think they are coming from someone who is not well. It is horrific to have to read something like that, but I would never consider quitting Twitter."

The star has 579,000 followers on the social network.
