Corrie’s Brooke Vincent hits back at trolls
CORRIE star Brooke Vincent has hit out at trolls who have criticised her for having ‘bad skin’.
The actress, 24, who plays Sophie Webster on the ITV soap, is currently involved in a storyline about online abuse.
In the show sisters Sophie and Rosie Webster (Helen Flanagan) try to find out who is responsible after their mother Sally Metcalfe is targeted by trolls.
Addressing the current storyline, Brooke told Good Morning Britain: ‘So, basically, Sally is a counsellor, so she is on social media and she’s getting abuse with people trolling her.
‘She was batting it off, but it’s come to the stage that she is scared.’
Presenters Eamonn Holmes and Kate Garraway then asked Brooke if she had ever been the victim of trolling herself.
She said: ‘I think people just like to have an opinion.
‘Growing up, I have had bad skin so that’s my thing that they go to, “you’re spotty” or whatever, “I don’t like this outfit or I don’t like it when you do this”.
‘Social media has just given people the opportunity to sit at home in their own comfort zone and go “I don’t like that. I’m going to write that to you”.’
