It comes after her husband Pasha, 41, recently revealed he is trying to protect his wife from cruel online comments sent by internet trolls.

As the dancer and Rachel are expecting their second child, Pasha said he is ‘trying to protect her as much as I can by providing a safe environment at home’.

He added: ‘That’s all I can do and try to direct her attention to the good things.’

Speaking to OK!, the Strictly star added he steers away from cruel online comments aimed at Rachel, admitting: ‘I never look at comments online and Rachel is trying to get a point across about racial abuse or domestic violence and she gets back very ridiculous messages.

‘People completely miss the point and speak about something irrelevant.’ 

His comments came a month after he revealed he worries how trolls’ hurtful messages could affect their unborn baby.

Speaking to The Mirror, he said: ‘I definitely can see how it stresses her. The smallest stress affects how the baby’s development is going.’ 

The performer added that he hates seeing hate flourish online where there is less accountability.

He explained: ‘If you come up to someone on the street and tell them something like that, you’re probably going to get some sort of repercussion. 

‘Online there’s a limited amount of repercussion, and it opens a floodgate. It should be stopped.’

Rachel previously revealed the stress of receiving hateful messages online stopped her first daughter, Maven, from kicking when she was pregnant with her.

The Countdown star had been a vocal critic of Jeremy Corbyn and the anti-antisemitism row in the Labour Party and received horrific messages online as a result.
