‘I hope whoever you are you go back to your sad miserable little hole and disappear!’
The devastated star then posted a video in which she again called out the troll, saying: ‘Thank you to everyone who has taken the time out to report that account and sent lovely messages.
‘I wouldn’t let trolling bother me usually, it does, but I’ve learned to deal with it. I just block and ignore.
‘But what I will not ignore is the fact that someone has written that about my innocent baby boy and I think it’s disgusting.

‘Whoever is behind that account, I probably know who it is, regardless if it isn’t, you are a disgusting human being.’
Shelby and Sam, 28, who have had quite the turbulent relationship as documented on TOWIE, announced they were expecting a baby earlier this year.
She shared her first pictures of her baby boy on November 19, revealing she and her former TOWIE co-star had called their son Abel Ashley.
Sharing the two pictures of the tot to Instagram, Shelby penned: ‘Abel Ashley Mucklow. Born 15.11.20 Weighing 7.3lb. Our perfect baby boy.’
Fury: She said: ‘But what I will not ignore is the fact that someone has written that about my innocent baby boy and I think it’s disgusting’
But giving birth to her son was not easy, as Shelby had to be readmitted to hospital with pre-eclampsia soon after welcoming Abel.
In a lengthy statement to her fans, she revealed that she was ‘not having an easy ride’ and was ‘taking so many different medications and vitamins’.
She wrote: ‘To every single person that has messaged me and are continuing to: family, friends and all you lovely people thank you so much I am soooo overwhelmed by all the love, support and kindness.

‘It’s really made me feel so special. It’s so difficult for me to respond to everyone individually it would take me too long to reply to you all but just know I’ve read and I am grateful for every single message sent to me.
‘I’m not having an easy ride and still have to be monitored daily and I’m taking so many different medications and vitamins I could probably open my own pharmacy at this rate, I’m rattling as i walk!’
But sounding upbeat, Shelby continued: ‘I’ve got all the best family and professionals around me to look after me and get me back to full health.
‘Baby boy is doing really well, we will reveal him to you soon (he doesn’t even realise how in demand is is haha… can’t wait to tell him when he is older)
‘Me and Sam can’t thank you all enough for being so kind towards us and showing so much love to our little family unit.
Pre-eclampsia is a pregnancy complication that causes high blood pressure, which can be deadly for both a woman and her unborn baby if untreated, and can begin from around 20 weeks into the pregnancy.
The best solution is usually an early birth via C-section, which isn’t always an ideal option if the baby is premature.
Symptoms include headaches, blurred vision, abdominal pain, vomiting and shortness of breath.
It usually begins in the placenta, when its blood vessels narrow and do not react to hormones properly, reducing the amount of blood that flows through the body.
