Chloe Madeley says was left frightened by the threats she received on social media in the wake of her mother's controversial comments about convicted rapist Ched Evans.
In a statement to ITV News, the TV presenter welcomed proposals for tougher sentences for internet trolls but warned more needed to be done to combat the "persistent" abuse.
I have been abused on social media for years, yet I have never taken it seriously as I agree that once you decide to enter the public eye, you are fair game.
However, threats of any kind must not be interpreted as freedom of speech.
Threatening to harm others is extreme and crosses the line of personal opinion into criminal behaviour. The tweets I received this week were frightening, persistent, violent and sadly, far too easy to make on a public forum. I am pleased the government are now talking about ways to deter trolls, and quadrupling the sentencing is a good place to start.
