Helen Flanagan fans have defended the actor after she was mum-shamed by trolls on Instagram.
"Trying to get a family picture with my kids," she captioned the post, which was uploaded on Monday (19 June).
Helen, dressed in pink joggers and a green sports bra, was pictured playing with her children, who were jumping on top of her while she was laying down on the carpet.
However, some trolls brought attention to the fact she was pictured with a glass of wine in her hand.
"Ok drinking & being drunk whilst looking after children is not on," one troll commented.
I mean to assume the mum was drunk based on one picture is a bit far-fetched.
Coming to her defence, one person said: "As if people find it acceptable to pull the woman apart, she’s got kids, occasionally we are all allowed time out even if it means the odd glass of wine whilst they’re there."
"Love this! It’s the wine pic for me that’s reality! You're an amazing mum," another added.
While a third also wrote: "Gd on you for having glass wine n pay no way to judgeys."
"Ffs get a life!! One glass of wine so what?? Bet ur life is very boring!! Beautiful pics," a fourth said.
"One drink of wine in the pics wow she must be off her face #getalife," someone else commented.
Tyla has contacted Helen Flanagan's representatives for comment.
Earlier this year, Molly-Mae Hague was also mum-shamed for going to the gym weeks after giving birth to daughter Bambi.
The 23-year-old - who is known for her love of fitness and staying in good shape - has been criticised for making other mums 'feel inadequate'.
The haters said she should be 'celebrating' her post-birth body rather than wasting no time to change it.
However, as one supporter pointed out: "Molly-Mae has always loved exercise - she used to work in a gym! Why would she give up a healthy thing she loves because she has become a mum?"
Another person added: "Women get shamed if they don’t lose the baby weight straight away and now Molly-Mae is being shamed for what exactly?
"Leaving the house and not having a baby attached to her tit 24/7."
