Soccer AM legend Helen Chamberlain has called out a Twitter troll who made her "feel really low".
Chamberlain was cruelly targeted on Sunday after she tweeted a picture of her and Women's World Matchplay winner Fallon Sherrock posing with the trophy. The 55-year-old presenter captioned the image "SHRIEK! Met my hero" but was taunted in the comments by one follower, who wrote: “Christ you’ve not aged well petal.”
The troll was soon put in their place by Chamberlain, though, after she screenshotted the comment and tweeted: “I didn't really like the way I looked in this photo, but I was so chuffed to meet Fallon I shared it anyway.

"I could have easily retweeted this comment with a snark, or a put down, but here's the truth. It made me feel really low today.
“I don't know if that was he was trying to achieve by writing what he did, but I can't think of any other reason than to make another human being feel bad about themselves.
“Absolutely not hunting for sympathy or likes, I've been dealing with this kind shit for well over 20 years. I'm used to it, although personal attacks do always sting a bit.
“I know a bunch of lovely people will now tell me to ignore, or why didn't I just ignore. I usually do, this time I didn't – and I'm not going to apologise for that.”
What is the best presenting duo in Soccer AM history? Let us know in the comments section below.
Chamberlain spent 22 years presenting Soccer AM between 1995 and 2017, working alongside six different male presenters, including Tim Lovejoy, Max Rushden and John Fendley.
Since leaving the cult football show she has presented coverage of a series of darts events, including Sunday's Women's World Matchplay.
Sherrock won the inaugural edition of the tournament, which pitted the eight best women's players against each other at Winter Gardens in Blackpool.
