A woman in Tynemouth has made a T-shirt for her boyfriend to warn off other women from approaching him while he holidays in Ibiza.
20-year-old Abbie Bartlett moved to Tynemouth with boyfriend Leon Connolly three years ago. Together they have a 5-year-old daughter named Harlie and she says the pair love to play practical jokes on each other:
"We're always pulling pranks on each other, our relationship is based on having fun. I was with him when he booked to go on holiday with friends to Ibiza and I said I was going to make a T-shirt for him to wear. He said 'you wouldn't' and I just replied 'watch me.'"
Abbie revealed the T-shirt to her boyfriend a few days ago, who is due to go on a "lads" holiday on Friday. Since the picture went on Facebook, Abbie has had over 800 likes on her personal account and the phrase '#whipped' has gone viral on Twitter.
The now famous T-shirt reads "I love my girlfriend Abbie and I hate all the girls in Ibiza so please stay away from me".
Abbie says Leon loves his gift: "I presented the T-shirt to him and he couldn't believe it. He thinks it's hilarious. I was kind of joking when I said he had to wear it everyday but now I think he actually will, he's keen to take all kinds of crazy pictures with it!"
But not everyone seems to get the joke. Some have posted insulting and rude comments to the couple, with one person even messaging Abbie saying "girlfriends like you deserve to be cheated on".
Abbie has not taken the insults to heart and continues to tweet despite the negative comments:
Speaking to ITV Tyne Tees about the public's reaction, Abbie said: "I am not an insecure, crazy girlfriend. It's just a joke. 90% of people think it's hilarious and it's only 10% who seem to lack in a sense of humour and don't understand."
