Chloe Ferry has revealed she’s taking a break from social media after receiving ‘really bad news about her family’.

She wrote: ‘I’m taking a few days away from social media and my phone I really need this me time. I haven’t been feeling my normal lately and I’m sick of pretending I’m ok to please other people for once I’m putting myself first. Love you all’ (sic).

The influencer took to her Stories to detail the reason behind her time away from the platforms, explaining: ‘I’ve had really bad news about my family, and my close friends and family know about it.
‘I am going to have a bit of time off social media, it’s for the best. Pre-recorded stuff will be posted. I’m only human and social media gets too much, this is why I need a few days.’
The reality star went on to share her experience with a troll, who contacts her with ‘nasty’ messages every day.

‘I haven’t been feeling my normal self lately’: The influencer also addressed her break in an accompanying message
Model Chloe said: ‘I’ve actually been having a really bad day today so seeing that hasn’t made me feel the best.
‘It’s one of many. Just because I show myself on Instagram, doesn’t mean you know how I’m actually feeling. I post myself looking sexy but it doesn’t actually mean that I feel sexy, I’m actually very insecure.
‘I don’t really read my DMs but this woman – who is the same age as my mum – is constantly commenting on my Stories.
‘She replies back to every single Story I put up, she’s so nasty to us. I get grief and it doesn’t bother us, but this girl replies back to everything! She said I can’t spell… well I’m dyslexic… then she goes on about my lips.’
The TV star previously touched on her battle with depression in an interview with The Sun, stating: ‘You see me on Geordie Shore and I’m bubbly and bouncy…
‘But there are a lot of things people don’t know about us like at school. I hated it because I had difficulties reading and writing.
‘I had depression, I’m really nervous about it coming out. That day when I filmed the episode I spent 99 percent of the day crying. I’ve got a gym in my house, so any time I’m feeling down I go downstairs to the treadmill.’
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Chloe for further comment.
