Ulrika Jonsson has hit back at a troll who suggested she was “guilty of young girls getting raped” after she posed naked to raise awareness for male mental health.

The 53-year-old TV presenter stripped down to nothing but her wellies in the snap for the StrongMen male bereavement support organisation's Bare Yourself campaign.

However, it evidently irked one troll who criticised the star for the image.

The person wrote: "This has nothing to do with men mental health, this is just another attention seeking person who porn c*** and is responsible if someone gets raped.

"Men are NOT the only one that is guilty of young girls getting raped. These stars are just as much guilty because of their part in everything."

Jonsson did not take the comment lying down.

Sharing a screengrab of it on Instagram, she snapped back sarcastically: “That's absolutely right. I'm guilty of the rape of young girls because I've taken my clothes off for charity.”

Jonsson shared the picture in honour of StrongMen earlier this week, telling her followers: “It’s never unmanly to talk.”

The image went down well with her fans, who said she looked “amazing”.

“Omg this is EVERYTHING!!! NOT A FILTER IN SIGHT!” gushed one fan. “Thank you beautiful lady for your realness.”

“A real body, no filters, no airbrushing…finally!!” said another.
