Vogue Williams has become the target of vicious online trolls who have criticised her for gaining weight.

The TV presenter, who is known for her love of fitness, recently sustained a serious knee injury while she was competing on Channel 4 reality series The Jump.

The mishap forced the Howth woman to withdraw from the reality series and she had to wear a cast for several weeks and is currently using crutches.

Having been unable to work-out like she was doing previously, Vogue has come under fire from bullies.

“Getting comments about my weight again,” she said. “Yes I’ve put on 3.5kg which is not bad considering I haven’t been able to walk in two months. Now go away.”

The comments seem to have affected the 31-year-old who later added: “If there was a feeling sorry for yourself award, I would hands down win it today.”

Vogue has been spending some quality time in Dublin lately with her new boyfriend Spencer Matthews.

The couple met on The Jump and had kept their relationship under wraps until Vogue's recent appearance on Brendan O'Connor's Cutting Edge where Spencer confirmed they are dating.
