Denise Welch

Celebrity Big Brother winner Denise Welch has called in the police over "evil" comments directed to her online.

According to the Daily Star, "sick" comments were made to the Loose Women star after she announced her split from husband Tim Healy earlier this week.

The messages, which included taunting the telly host to "slit her wrists", kept Denise awake all night.

She tweeted: “Can’t sleep after strange day! Thank you for your loyalty and love. Makes the haters easier to deal with."

And she replied to the troll: “Please stop being horrible to people you don’t know. You’ll be much happier.

“By the way, my work have reported you to the police and they’ve traced you.

“Have a good day."

She told the newspaper: “With all of the amazing response from the public, and especially on Twitter, it’s a shame that just a few horrible and evil faceless tweeters will get extra publicity for writing such vile things.

“I’m made of stern stuff so I’ll be fine.

“I don’t normally respond but I just felt they needed putting in their place.’’
