Chloe Ferry has rushed to defend Wayne Lineker after he was branded a "paedophile" following their engagement prank.
The 25 year old and her Celebs Go Dating: The Mansion co-star Wayne, 58, told fans that they were engaged last month, with Chloe then showing off her ring-free finger just days later, proving their romance was a stunt.
Geordie Shore star Chloe has now jumped to her pal's defence after seeing the "disgusting" things she has read online about him.
She took to social media to reveal her horror at having to read the allegations about her friend, who she met while filming the hit E4 show.

Chloe told her 3.6million Instagram followers in an emotional video: "Some of the stuff that I have had to read about him is disgusting. I can't believe the stuff he is getting called.
"Paedophile is such a strong word to call someone it is absolutely disgusting that he is getting called that when all his friends and family have to read that about him.
"Wayne is one of the most amazing people I have ever met in my life and he does not deserve the abuse and the awful words that are getting said about him I am disgusted having to read that."
She continued: I was on the phone to him the other day and he was getting upset, like I know he would never show that on social media but imagine him having to read those comments when he has such a big family, it is vile just vile.
"It really upsets us how people can still be allowed on social media when they have been that vile and nasty.
"Some of the stuff that has been said to Wayne, I don't know how he is coping at the minute, I can’t believe some of the stuff I have read.
