Ferne McCann's mum GIll has hit out at Twitter trolls for criticising her daughter's bikini body.

TOWIE star Ferne is currently in the jungle taking part in I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!, but her mum is fed up of seeing "vile" comments from bodyshamers.

"People are just vile. I can't stand seeing how nasty people are to her," Gill told The Mirror. "She's my baby. I can't read it all. It's not fair because she's not meant to be a skinny model anyway, it's not her job."

Ferne has already had a few bikini moments in the jungle, but Gill revealed Ferne's netball injury in the summer - which left her on crutches and suffering with torn ligaments and a swollen ankle - stopped her from keeping up with her usual fitness routine.

"She hasn't been as happy and in shape as she was," continued Gill. "But I think she's gorgeous, she's tall and got long legs."

Ferne arrived into the jungle as a late arrival last week alongside former Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison and Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews, who was later axed.

On Tuesday night's show, viewers watched as Ferne won an impressive 10 stars for camp in the Floods of Fears Bushtucker Trial.
