‘I think the easiest thing is to block them and not get sucked in,’ Natalie told New Idea .  

In a joint interview with her co-star, Edwina Bartholomew said she has taken a leaf out of Nat’s book when it comes to handling the trolls. 

‘I used to weight into a lot more and fixate on it, but it can be really bad for your mental health,’ she told the publication.

‘I take the same approach as Nat now and I tend to block, occasionally I engage if it’s informative…but I don’t go further down the rabbit hole.’  

Elsewhere in their joint interview, Nat and Edwina spoke about their close bond.

They said they often speak about motherhood in the early mornings while sitting in the makeup chair.

‘We sit and chat about parenting or what’s going on with her boys or my family,’ Nat said. ‘So it’s really nice to have that relationship.’

Natalie rose to the top of the breakfast show pile when her predecessor Samantha Armytage dramatically quit Sunrise earlier this year.

Natalie was subsequently given the co-host role alongside anchor David ‘Kochie’ Koch.

Samantha quickly joined Barr’s online critics in the aftermath, tweeting ‘Nat’s wanted the job, forever.. & she’s finally got it,’ before adding that Natalie should ‘forget about’ her.
