In the first episode, they track a troll who has spent the last two years harassing model and reality TV star Nicola, who recently appeared on Celebrity Big Brother.

Meanwhile, former X Factor finalist Chloe Jasmine opens up to Frankie: "I was scared of what I'd find.

"My experience of being on television...I thought it was a fun thing to do, but I was told I was different, overweight and ugly.

"When you're being bullied, that's when you feel insecure. That's when you start to feel ugly, I was told I speak differently, I look weird, I've got acne."

But comments about her appearance were just the start, with Chloe also being sent rape and even death threats.

"It's being said about you, not to you, and you have no idea who they are. They should be locked away," Chloe says of the tweets.

Chloe does get the chance to confront her troll, albeit briefly before he tells her to "F**k off" and runs away.

"If you're going to hurl abuse, at least say sorry and hold your hands up. There was just no accountability there."
