Jodie Marsh impersonated on dating site

Jodie Marsh has been left infuriated after someone posed as her on a dating site.

The 37-year-old star - who recently split from husband James Placido - has appealed to bosses at Plenty of Fish to remove a profile from a user called 'ellenx78x', who described themselves as a 38-year-old teacher but accompanied their listing with a picture of the glamorous bodybuilder.

Jodie tweeted: "Hi @PlentyOfFish someone alerted me to this: it's a photo of ME - can you please make this stop! Thanks.(sic)"

She also included a screenshot of the offending account.

Having received no response from Plenty of Fish on Twitter, Jodie then urged her followers who use the dating site to target the offending user.

She wrote: "Failing that, anyone on @PlentyOfFish feel free to message ellenx78x telling her she is a fraud......(sic)"

Jodie - who recently declared her intention to stay celibate for the forseeable future - recently vowed to have a baby via a sperm donor.

She said: "I've done a lot more research, I've met lots and lots of people and I'm now using a firm. I'm going with the British Surrogacy Centre to America."

When asked if she would consider a documentary about the search, she added: "Er, it depends how much a channel might offer ... You could follow my journey as to how it happened because that's interesting in itself."

Jodie has been told she has a low egg count and that it might be difficult for her to conceive naturally.

And despite her recent split from James, she claims a hunt for a sperm donor started way before they tied the knot.

She shared: "Before I got married last year, before I even met him actually, I was looking to sperm donation because I realise time is ticking. I'm not getting any younger and if I want to have kids, there are limited options available - and certainly going forward there will be limited options. So I'd already been looking into sperm donation and I made a TV show about it last year."

The model filmed six documentaries on challenging topics for TLC - including one on the use of sperm donors - and she says she now feels in a "better position" because of her added knowledge on the topic.

She shared: "I've done loads of research on it [sperm donors], I knew what I was doing and what I was getting in to ... I'm in a better position now, in the sense that having made the TV show I now know more about it now."
