Rebekah Vardy is one of the latest celebs to take on online trolls in real life in Channel 5's new show.

Celeb Trolls: We're Coming To Get You continues tonight at 10PM on Channel 5, hosted by Frankie Bridge.

The new series follows a previous one-off show where Frankie tracked down online haters to confront them in real life over their comments.

Now a full series continues this evening with celebs including Rebekah Vardy, who is married to England footballer Jamie Vardy.

In tonight's episode, Rebekah speaks out after being sent vile messages about her daughter.

Speaking to The Sun on Sunday ahead of the show, Rebekah explained: “I posted a picture of Sofia to thank a company for sending her some hair clips. She was smiling in her dad’s football shirt.

"Then I got such a vile message from someone wanting to rape her. It was shocking and out of the blue.”

And a photo of her newborn son got equally shocking comments.

"Someone tweeted that he should have been stillborn. It was beyond upsetting," Rebekah recalled. "I thought, ‘This just isn’t right. That’s it.’ ”

Meanwhile, former X Factor finalist Chloe Jasmine opens up in tonight's episode as she confronts her troll in real life.

Chloe tells host 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 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 those sending the tweets.

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

"He ran back in, made no eye contact, and no communication whatsoever," Chloe says. "I'm stunned.

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

Celeb Trolls: We're Coming To Get You airs tonight on Channel 5 at 10PM.
