When one fan asked her to ‘prove it,’ she had the perfect comeback, writing: ‘My t*ts are bigger than that.’

Another follower joked: ‘I can’t unsee this,’ prompting Anne to agree: ‘YOU can’t unsee it? How do you think I feel?’ she tweeted.  

While this was a humorous exchange, Anne revealed last week that her job was almost in jeopardy when she called a troll a ‘sad c***’ on social media earlier this year.

Speaking on Wednesday’s edition of Lorraine, the 60-year-old star admitted ITV ‘ordered’ her to take the tweet down after she replied to a nasty comment aimed at her I’m A Celebrity co-star Emily Atack.

Anne told host Christine Lampard: ‘I’ve been known to get in trouble for doing that [answering back].

‘I tweeted a tweet last month, it got 25,000 likes, before ITV ordered me to take it down and threatened me with suspension.

‘So I took it down. Sometimes you don’t always know what’s appropriate or what people will find appropriate or not. One is not actually trying to upset the source of one’s bread and butter.’

Anne was referring to the memorable time she clapped back with the insult when someone insulted her pal Emily.

The actress had tweeted how excited she was to be playing Blondie icon Debbie Harry in Sky Arts show Urban Myths.

One Twitter user replied: ‘Sorry. You’re just not pretty enough’ – but Anne wasn’t having any of it. She fired back ‘What a sad c**t you are, Steve.’

Hegerty lives with autism and was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, which she discussed during her time on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here back in 2018.
