Following the hugely successful one-off documentary from last year, Frankie Bridge and her expert team of troll trackers are back, confronting internet trolls face-to-face to see just how brave they are when they haven’t got a computer to hide behind. Using the latest surveillance technology, Frankie and her team: Ben Owen (ex-M15), Danni Brooke (ex-Undercover police) and Julian Druker (Investigative Reporter - Channel 5 News) hunt down the trolls before carrying out a dramatic confrontation. In this series they help Nicola MacLean, Rebekah Vardy, Sam Bailey, Rebecca Adlington OBE, Chloe Jasmine, Zahida Allen and many others. It’s time for answers.
Celeb trolls, watch out, we’re coming to get you…
In this episode:
Zahida Allen is better known from her appearances Geordie Shore & Ex On The Beach and Rebecca Adlington OBE is a well decorated Olympic athlete after winning two gold medals at the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, China.
But, what is very little known about them is the fact they receive online abuse on a daily basis.
Frankie Bridge meets up with Zahida to discuss her experiences of being racially abused online.
Danni Brooke & Ben Owen are on the hunt for one of Zahida's most prolific trollers leading to a confrontation between the two.
Rebecca Adlington OBE speaks out after receiving a barrage of hatred relating to how she looks.
Fame comes at a price and Only Way Is Essex star, Lauren Goodger, tells us all about it.
And comedian, Bilal Zafar, explains how he uses the disparaging remarks he receives as part of his stand up routine.
All this and more.
Last in series.
