'Corrie' star Tina O'Brien has hit out at online trolls who body-shamed her over a recent photo
Tina O'Brien has blasted online trolls for body-shaming her.
The 'Coronation Street' actress – who has played Sarah Platt on and off since 1999 – shared a paparazzi photo of herself out in the sun wearing a black vest top and denim shorts, along with cruel remarks from online bullies, one of whom claimed the actress should be "ashamed".
She wrote: "I should feel ashamed? And we wonder why people, especially women struggle with self esteem.
"Instead I choose to feel love and gratitude for my healthy body that allows me to run around the garden with my son and bounce on the trampoline with my daughter. I choose love and acceptance."
Several of her fellow soap stars jumped into the comment section to offer kind words of support.
Former 'Corrie' actress Bhavna Limbachia wrote: "Tina, you are THE most genuine and kind person I have ever met. Beautiful inside and out xxx (sic)"
Other cobbles alumni also weighed in, with Catherine Tyldesley admitting she "pities" such trolls.
She replied: "What the f***?! I honestly pity these people. Jealous little s****."
Tina's co-star Lottie Henshall (Jade Rowan) added: "So beautiful inside and out! Keyboard warriors with nothing better to do."
Lucy Fallon – who appeared on the cobbles as Tina's on-screen daughter Bethany Platt – responded: "Tina!!!!! You're one of the most incredible women I've ever met. (And you're beautiful) We don't listen to them. (sic)"
Kate Ford ranted: "The ridiculous person who made that ridiculous comment is called 'here to make friends' I mean looolllllll. (sic)"
