People are swooping to Helen Flanagan's defence as the former Coronation Street star is mum-shamed for a holiday Instagram post.
Flanagan has previously been criticised for enjoying a glass of wine while playing with her kids and unfortunately, the trolls just keep on coming.
The 32-year-old is currently away on holiday in Barbados, Caribbean, with her three children Matilda, eight, Delilah, five, and Charlie, two.
Flanagan shares her children with footballer Scott Sinclair, however, the couple split last year.
The mum has been sharing pictures and videos online from their family trip away however, she's faced backlash from some followers for doing so.
In the video, Flanagan can be seen with her trio on a balcony, holding her youngest in her arms as Matilda and Delilah keep themselves entertained with a game of Pat-a-Cake.
'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' plays over the top of the clip as the family enjoy their time away.
Flanagan captioned the post: "Woke up in paradise."
Unfortunately, the 32-year-old may have woken up in paradise, but her post has woken up some internet trolls too.
One Instagram user said: "Perhaps your youngest two will enjoy it if the phone isn’t on them 24/7??"
A second added: "The shades falling off is the only non fake thing in this reel. Please chuck your phone over the balcony and enjoy your holiday without the need for likes on social media."
A third questioned: "What's the point of this?"
Thankfully, fans of the Corrie actor have flooded to her defence, responding to the haters and telling them where to go.
One said: "Hey [user] - I see you you have 116 followers. Helen has over one million & she’s an actress with three children - why be so insulting to a mother - why dont you just unfollow it she annoys you?"
Another commented: "Because you’ve never recorded on your phone right?? It’s just a few seconds for lords sake. You’ve probably spent more time scrolling or even commenting on this post than the length of this video."
While a third wrote: "There are some really lovely messages on here for Helen to see but then there are a few really horrible and spiteful ones too... Whatever happened to #bekind? Some people are just really vile!!!"
And a final resolved: "All these negative comments. For FS it’s disgusting really the world we live in, glad Helen doesn’t give a s**t xx."
Flanagan hasn't publicly responded to the trolling. Tyla has contacted her for comment.
