‘However, I have come to a point (and it’s not about me, it’s not about me being in the public eye, because absolutely NO ONE should be getting this type of abuse) where this growing hatred, unkindness, bullying and inhumanity has really made me sad and disappointed.

‘I started to think that not to challenge these cases and these people is actually more irresponsibly. It’s easy to just click ”block” button but does it really solve the problem? Or does it keep feeding the monster of online bullying because those people feel like they can get away with it?

‘My questions to these people are – would you look into my eyes and tell me these exact words if I was stood in front of you”?

‘Would you like if someone else, who doesn’t know you and have never met you before, looked at you and told you that you’re and ugly f*****g pig and you should hang yourself?” Yes it touches me, but I learnt to get over it.

‘However, some others get affected much more… For real… Your carelessly thoughtlessly, irresponsponsibly thrown words would often stay with the person forever and grown into a monster that eventually could eat them alive.

‘My problem is that I forgive you all and still have love for you, because I love people, I believe in humanity and I believe we can change this.’

Katya then shared a defiant selfie, adding: ‘Please remember: Nothing that anyone says defines who you actually are.’

The dancer is currently self-isolation after testing positive for COVID-19 last week, meaning she and her celebrity partner Nicola Adams had to withdraw from this year’s Strictly.

Although they can no longer take part, Nicola and Katya are reportedly set to return for one last time this series during the final after their self-isolation is complete.

Katya was ‘inconsolable’ after learning she would have to exit the competition as she was hoping to rehabilitate her image this year after she was pictured kissing dance partner Seann Walsh during the 2018 series.

A source told The Sun: ‘She was inconsolable about having to leave the competition, she was so excited about being in the first same-sex couple and she really thought it was her chance to restore her battered “kissgate” image.

‘She wants to be remembered for all the right reasons not the wrong ones.’ 

They'll be back! Although they can no longer take part, Nicola and Katya are reportedly set to return for one last time this series during the final after their self-isolation is complete
