Megan McKenna exclusive interview: weekly column picture

Megan McKenna has admitted internet trolls can leave her feeling upset and she'd love to be able to confront them about the nasty messages they write about her.

The TOWIE star writes in her latest column for Reveal magazine that she's been targeted by cruel comments in recent weeks and she's fed up with it.

"I've suffered a lot of trolling lately, especially on Pete [Wicks]'s Instagram. People are so mean to me sometimes. Pete put a pic of me posing with my head down, and people are saying, 'You look miserable' or 'Look at you f*cking frowning.' I don't normally do it but I was so angry, I commented back!"

She added: "People need to realise that, like any human being, I have feelings too and it's so out of order picking on me all the time."

Megan, 24, said she would relish the chance to confront her trolls by taking part in a documentary like Celeb Trolls: We're Coming To Get You, hosted by Frankie Bridge earlier this year.

The Saturdays singer Frankie was joined by X Factor contestant and former CBB star Chris Maloney as she tracked down some of the individuals who left nasty comments on social media to find out why they did it and whether they were sorry.

"I'd love to go on that Channel 5 programme, Celeb Trolls: We're Coming to Get You," Megan told us. "Last time, Chris Maloney and Frankie Bridge went to see the trolls that were horrible to them, and I'd love to confront my bullies."

Megan appeared with Chris in the 16th series of CBB earlier this year.

Meanwhile, poor Megan has had a difficult time lately after discovering messages on boyfriend Pete Wicks' phone to an ex-girlfriend. Pete has not publicly commented but Megan told fans on Snapchat she'd been left hurt and heartbroken. Their current relationship status is not known.
