When Caroline Flack stepped up with Olly Murs to take over from Dermot O'Leary's X Factor hosting job, we could not have been more excited for a weekly Saturday night dose of Flackers' fashion and general fabulousness, and ohhhh she delivered every single time.

But the not-so-fun side to being on prime time telly is the trolls who are always out in full force to bring you down, and Cazza Flacka Flame has spoken out for the first time about the cruel body shaming that she faced from viewers. Not cool.

Being on the X Factor definitely wasn't an easy ride for Caroline, as she faced constant criticism for her presenting skills with Olly, as well as what she described as 'vile' comments on her appearance each week before being very publicly sacked by Simon Cowell.

Admitting that she tried her best to pretend the trolling wasn't happening, Caroline told Women's Health: "I ignored it for a very long time, knowing it was there, which was a weird feeling, like ignoring a bank statement on your table."

But she's only human after all, and it wasn't long before Cazza was tempted to take a peek at the comments being said about her online. Gulp.

"One time I looked. I'll never forget what night it was because it felt really shit. I learned my lesson not to look," she admitted.

We're gonna guess she might be referring to that time she hit Twitter to respond to the online hate she'd received about her weight and body, telling followers: "The vile comments about my weight and just all round look tonight are quite shocking."

POOR CAZZA. Good job she's a badass who don't want no scrubs. What are your thoughts on all of this X Factor drama? Let us know with a tweet to@Sugarscape, and then check out the bonus vid below.
