I’m a Celeb star Abbie Chatfield has hit back at viewers who were unhappy she was cast on the reality show.

Abbie, who appeared on Matt Agnew’s season of The Bachelor in 2019, was one of the nine celebs who entered the jungle in last night’s premiere.

As soon as she appeared on screens, Twitter lit up with a mix of positive and negative reactions.

This season of I’m a Celeb was prerecorded last month, so Abbie was able to see the viewer reaction on social media last night.

On her Instagram story last night, Abbie reacted to all of the tweets, saying: “Half of Twitter hates me, half of Twitter loves me. I see you xxx.”

Abbie, who has been mercilessly trolled on social media since appearing on The Bachelor, also wrote on Instagram: “People on Twitter are so mad, they’re like, ‘get off our screens.’ Babe, you trolled me, you made me.”

Abbie has previously spoken publicly about the vicious comments she’s received on social media in the past couple of years.

In a lengthy post last year, she said she feared for her safety after being receiving death threats online.

After sharing a number of threatening messages, Abbie wrote on Instagram: “F**k you if you’ve ever messaged anyone something even close to this. This is why people commit suicide after being catapulted into the spotlight by a TV show.

“Am I grateful for The Bachelor? Yes! Does ANYTHING anyone does on these shows warrant this? F**K NO. These are just 10 of the messages I’ve saved over the last year. Threats of violence, name calling, threats to my safety and general snide comments still happen a year on.”

She continued: “At one point I was scared to be recognised in public, for fear of my safety. I still get worried when people ask for photos with me that they’re going to say something to hurt me or take a photo with me and joke about me with their friends.

”This isn’t a joke. This isn’t f**king funny and This isn’t fair. I shouldn’t be falling asleep worried someone will break into my apartment and strangle me!”

I’m a Celeb continues on Channel 10 tonight at 7.30pm
