Síle Seoige has hit back at “mean” and “passive aggressive” trolls by telling them to unfollow her.

The TG4 presenter is expecting her second child with her partner Damien O’Farrell and hopped on her Instagram Stories to tell her followers that she has been writing a pregnancy journal while she waits for her bundle of joy to arrive.

She explained: “I’m in a fresh pair of jammies, it’s Bank Holiday Monday. I’ve had a lovely lazy day. Now, I have got dressed and left the house, just not for long. Just taking a bit of time out to write in my pregnancy journal.

“I’m not as good as I was when I kept one when I was pregnant with Cathal but anyway it’s nice to write in it and keep an account of how I’m feeling, how I’m doing, all that kind of stuff.

“Because before we know it, we’ll have another little addition in the house.”

However, Síle received some nasty messages after speaking on her Stories and decided to call out a troll who sent an unkind DM.

“99pc of messages here on Instagram are lovely,” the 42-year-old said.

“But there will always be a few that are not so lovely. I don’t like using the block button but for your own mental wellbeing sometimes it’s needed.

“To those who send mean/bitchy messages. Why bother? Just unfollow me or anyone else if they annoy you.

“It’ll be better for you and for the person you are directing your judgement at.”

She shared a photo of the message she received, which said: “Síle.. you really don't need a pregnancy diary... You have documented every day of this pregnancy on Insta.

“What are you going to focus on when this pregnancy is over? How interested have you been in all your pals' pregnancies?”

Sile hit back: “I won't share this person's name but this isn't the first passive aggressive message she has sent me.

“If you're reading this, which I'm pretty sure you are as you follow my stories, do yourself a favour and unfollow me and try and uncover why I seem to bother you so much.”
