Warhurst commented on the abuse: "Women who do this to women. Too repulsed by my hair to eat her breakfast, but managing to bang out this vitriol. Apart from anything else I can’t bear inaccuracies – I think we can all agree my hair looked [heart love emoji]."

The presenter also uploaded a selfie of her posing with co-host John Kay.

Warhurst also received support from various other presenters including Sky Sports News' Hayley McQueen who tweeted: "Wow, if that's a bad hair day you should see mine sometimes, they best not switch over to Sky, I might make them actually sick haha. Some people are so strange!"

Rylan also said: "F*** THEM . U look lovely x."

Broadcaster Michelle Ackerley also responded by saying: "You look stunning! Fab hair."
