HELEN George has taken on a cruel troll who slammed her appearance in Call The Midwife.
The viewer called the 33 year old “massive”, seemingly unaware that she was pregnant when the show filmed.
“Helen George is massive. She should be put on a diet. #callthemidwife,” user Andre Fernandez wrote.
The actress fired back via Twitter, saying: “Sorry if my chins offended you, I chose to feed my baby healthily and not starve myself in a selfish act to look good on TV.
“Would you say this to a pregnant lady’s face? You should look on pregnant ladies’ multiple chins with love, they are busy making the future x”.
Fans of the show were quick to jump to the blonde star’s defence.picture">

One told her: “Nicely put, although he doesn’t deserve your time beautiful lady xx”.
To which Helen replied: “Oh I know lovely, but so many comments like that come my way so boring. It’s about a feeling toward pregnant women, that we should all stay skinny xxx".
Helen was pregnant with her first child with co-star Jack Ashton during filming of series seven of Call the Midwife.
Her character Nurse Trixie Franklin was seen making an emotional exit from the show after Helen's baby bump became obvious and couldn’t be hidden on the show.
To create a plausible departure for her, Nurse Trixie was seen seeking help after spiralling back into alcoholism.
But fear not fans, Helen will be returning as the ditzy favourite.
Heidi Thomas, show creator, told the Radio Times: “Helen was able to graciously retire – she just had a couple of episodes off.”
