As The Vamps singer James McVey settles in for a stint in the Australian jungle on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! his girlfriend is battling Twitter trolls, who are making her life a misery back home.
Kirstie Brittain has made an impassioned plea for the haters to stop hating after old rumours of her cheating on the 24-year-old singer came bubbling to the surface again.
This follows a brief hiccup in their relationship during 2014, when a photo of Kirstie kissing another man surfaced online.
With James appearing on the ITV show, the past has been raked up again and I’m A Celebrity fans have come down hard on Kirstie, for a second time around.

After a supporter of hers reached out on Twitter,writing: "Hope you’re ok with all the negativity floating around at the moment, gal! Sending love."
Kirstie replied to her with, "Truly trying to block out the haters."
Kirstie’s supporter then took aim at those doing the trolling, writing: "It’s disgusting how people can’t just focus on the positives and move on from things, we’re always here for you."

This touched Kirstie, who replied that it was "hard" to get so much abuse. She tweeted: "I’m always trying to remember that personal lives are personal for a reason and all that matters is that you yourself knows what’s right and who you really are – but these f***ers make it hard!!
"I’m getting there, thank you for being kind!"
At the time of the alleged cheating, James had appealed to fans of The Vamps to stop tagging him in an Instagram post which showed the photo of Kirstie kissing another man.
After a two month separation, the pair have been together ever since and have probably put that episode behind them, until it has raised its head again now.
