ITV presenter Lorraine Kelly, 59, said she was “lucky” there was no social media when she was younger and advised current users to avoid looking at negative comments.

Speaking at the TV Choice Awards on Monday, she said: ­“I was really lucky.

“When I started out there was no Twitter and there was no social ­media. I was allowed when I was a kid to make mistakes.

“I honestly think in this day and age I would be ­absolutely slaughtered.”

She went on to say it was “difficult” for young actors and presenters to cope with “vile things” on the internet.

Sharing her advice, she added: “A plea from me… do not go on ­it. Use it because, obviously, we all do.

“But don’t look at the comments and don’t take those comments to heart. It’s just not worth it.

“They’re horrible nasty ants with megaphones, so don’t listen to them.”

Lorraine’s comments came after Jesy, 28, revealed she wanted to die after being the victim of online abuse.

In her new documentary Odd One Out, Jesy admitted her mental health had “spiralled out of control” after constant abuse.
