Laura Whitmore said online trolls told her to "Go back to your own country" when she started presenting I'm A Celebrity's spin-off show.
The I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Now! presenter said she has learned to deal with trolls over the years.
"You have to take things with a pinch of salt. It does help talking to people because things get you down," she said.
"When I first started on I'm A Celeb, because I had an Irish accent, people were saying horrible things like 'Go back to your own country'.
"But these people are hiding behind a computer screen. And then you have people telling you you're the best thing since sliced bread, you're amazing, which you're not either," she told Irish Tatler.
