Targeted: Denise Welch has called in cops after receiving a barrage of online abuse from a Twitter user who told her to slit her wrists

Worried Celebrity Big Brother winner Denise Welch has called in police after being tormented by a cyber stalker who is urging her to kill herself.

TV star Welch has been left living in fear after a nasty online bully has been targeting her on Twitter.

The 'evil' stalker has constantly berated the Loose Women presenter after she announced her marriage split earlier this week.

And she felt compelled to call in cops after the abuser went so far they urged her to 'slit her wrists' and dubbed her a 'w**re pig'.

The online abuse was obviously affecting Denise as she took to her Twitter page at 5am yesterday morning to reveal she hadn't been able to sleep as a result of the vile messages.

She wrote: 'Can’t sleep after strange day! Thank you for your loyalty and love. Makes the haters easier to deal with.'

'So glad all the s**t on Denise Welch has hit the papers. What a scummy bully s**g.

'So disgusting the carry on of Denise Welch on Loose Women and her pride in affairs and drunken behaviour. She’s no role model.

'Michael Madsen, you’re a gentle man sir. You should have won. That Denise is human waste.'

And she's faced the barrage of torments ever since.

Speaking to the Daily Star about the abuse, she reveals the outpouring of love from her fans has helped her get through the criticism.

She tells the newspaper: 'With all of the amazing response from the public, and especially on Twitter, it’s a shame that just a few horrible and evil faceless tweeters will get extra publicity for writing such vile things.

'I’m made of stern stuff so I’ll be fine.

'I don’t normally respond but I just felt they needed putting in their place.'
