TOWIE's Lauren Goodger admits online abuse affects her weight

The Only Way is Essex star Lauren Goodger has admitted that she is upset by the "disgusting" abuse she receives online.

The reality star said she believes that the upsetting comments on twitter have contributed to her weight problems.

She told The Sun: "I do get a lot of negative posts on my Twitter feed.

"It can be upsetting, particularly when people are making comments on pictures I post as that feels more personal.

"I'll get hundreds of responses to anything I post saying things like 'You're fat', 'You're ugly', or 'Who are you?' It can be quite rude and disgusting, too. I have guys write to me about sex, that is horrible."

She added: "The more pressure there was on me and comments in magazines or on twitter about my size, the more my weight was fluctuating because I was worried about it... Even if there are 200 nice comments and three negative ones I think, 'Here we go, people still think I'm fat'."

Goodger added that the comments she receives online are in contrast to the things people say when they meet her.

She said: "No one has ever said any of these comments in real life, to my face.

"But anyone can write anything on Twitter without revealing their identity. That's scary.

"It can be dangerous and not nice and people can find out where you are and where you're going. It's very powerful."
