Keith Lemon has admitted he is terrified of Twitter trolls and even worries about leaving his own house after receiving threats online
Keith Lemon is terrified of Twitter trolls.
The 'Celebrity Juice' presenter admitted he is often left feeling too scared to leave his own house after being targeted by bullies online.
He said: "I get grief every day, it's f***ing horrible.
"I get loads of trolls. I feel like I'm doing OK, then I'll get someone on Twitter, saying, 'Die of AIDS'."
Keith also has to think twice about going out clubbing as he worries he would get beaten up after hearing that one of the stars of 'The Only Way Is Essex' had been targeted in a bar.
He explained: "I like going to showbiz dos, but I don't really go to clubs. It's too much hassle. You see a TOWIE person get beaten up in a club.
"You can't go to those places because people get really jealous, or why else would they want to hit you?
"And you can't judge them because maybe they've got a really s**t life and they're jealous of your good life, so I don't go to those places."
Keith - who is a character played by comedian Leigh Francis - also confessed he feared for his life before a promotional event, with his wife, Jill, pleading with him not to attend after one Twitter user wrote they had planned his "demise".
He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I had someone say 'I'm planning your demise.
"I had book signings, and my bird was like: 'Don't go - I think you're going to get killed.'"
