Tracy Beaker star Dani Harmer has hit back at trolls who’ve made cruel comments about her since the reboot of the classic show.

Taking to Twitter, Dani, 32, who plays Tracy in the much-loved show, said she’d had to block a few people after cruel comments were made about her appearance.

Dani wrote: “Overwhelmed by all the love!! Sad that I’ve had to use my block button a couple of times though!!

"But I’m far too old for negativity!! And yes I’ve put on weight! We’ve been in lockdown all year! I ate some chocolate! Size 10 isn’t exactly huge now move on xx”

It’s not the first time Dani has addressed comments made about her weight recently. The actress revealed she’d been attacked with cruel jibes while on Strictly Come Dancing.

The actress,who previously shared her reaction to Stormzy's cover of the Tracy Beaker theme tune, opened up about the hateful messages she received while appearing on the BBC One show.

The 32 year old toldRadio Times: "I got so many messages, people telling me that I'm fat, that I'm overweight and I was like a size six at the time.

"So I was like, 'Holy moly, if I'm fat, God knows what other people must be thinking if they're bigger than me', that must be just horrible.

"I can think of things really logically and be like, obviously, I'm not fat, that's ridiculous.

"This person, obviously, is just bored, or has something wrong with their life that they feel like this is the only way they can get some validation and I actually feel sorry for them," Dani shared.

The Tracy Beaker star went on to add that people are beginning to be more open about their mental health struggles on social media platforms.

"I think we're a bit more open about our mental health states now," she continued.

"People are being a bit more honest on their social media pages and using them a bit more responsibly.

"So hopefully we're coming out the other side of it now."

The television personality,who welcomed her first child in 2016, was paired with former Strictly professional Vincent Simone during the competition.

The pair ended up going all the way to the final of the show and came in fourth place.

Overall, the actress has been pleased with the reaction to the new Tracy Beaker episodes and has taken the time to thank supportive fans.

She tweeted: “The love I’m getting on here is honestly making me feel so emotional!! So glad you all enjoyed it wether you watched just the 1 ep or binged all 3 on iplayer! I can’t thank you all enough for making me feel so loved.”
