Gemma Collins" "Dancing On Ice" partner Matt Evers has defended her in an angry rant against a nasty internet troll.

The 37-year-old reality star has received a torrent of abuse regarding her weight since signing up for the hit ITV show - however, her dance partner has taken to twitter to slam the user who suggested the show "reinforce the ice" ahead of her appearance.

Taking to Twitter, Matt wrote: "Who are you to judge and say something like that? Any decent "MAN" wouldn't body shame a woman.

"Unless your manhood is that small you're threatened that their balls are bigger than yours.

"I'm sure your mothers well proud, Show your face "Paul" (sic)"

Another wrote: "Well said Matt can't believe the amount of horrible comments about Gemma she is amazing to try cause I definitely wouldn't I'd be so scared. How sad is it that his profile picture says Choose love". (sic)

Meanwhile, Gemma has spoken of how she hopes her stint on the show will kick-start a fitness regime to help her slim down for her wedding day.

The star is planning to marry James "Arg" Argent in a couple of years but after admitting the pair piled on the pounds over the summer, she is keen to start eating well and "working hard" ready for James to pop the question.

She said: "I'm mainly doing the show for the amazing outfits and as a way of losing weight. If I commit myself to training and eating well I think I could really get in shape by doing the show.

"I want to get married in the next few years and I don't want to be fat for my wedding day. We've both put on a lot of weight over the summer so now it's time to work hard and get in shape."
