Celebrity Big Brother star White Dee has been forced to leave Benefits Street after her children were racially abused.

She took the decision after receiving receiving an increasing amount of trouble from "nut-jobs and idiots," her manager Barry Tomes said.

Dee, whose real name is Deirdre Kelly, is still staying in her terrace house in Birmingham so her seven-year-old son and daughter, 16, can keep attending the same schools.

Mr Tomes said matters came to a head recently when Dee's children, who are mixed race, and her Rastafarian boyfriend were targeted by "internet trolls".

Mr Tomes said: "It just got a bit silly. The abuse has got bigger and bigger.

"She's been getting quite a lot of hateful stuff on Twitter, and it's clearly going to get a lot worse.

"There was the comment online about her kids, which is just vile and not at all acceptable. So, she's decided the family needs a bit of normality."
