Internet scammers will sometimes pose as prominent figures in a bid to trick the celebrity's followers into thinking it's them, and it appears that this has happened to the Countdown star. Addressing her fans, she warned: "Evening. Quite a number of people have now told me about a fake account pretending to be me and asking them to follow back."

Her holiday came not long after she opened about the possibility of her having suffered with seasonal affective disorder, otherwise known as S.A.D.

"Hello lovelies and hello new followers... Had such a top New Year..." she wrote on Instagram. "I think I was going through a bit of Seasonal Affect Disorder (S.A.D.) where you get lowish through lack of light... I mean December wasn't exactly awash with sunshine!!!!"

She also put on her Stories: "Hope you're well my lovelies. OMG – what a good new year! I'm like a new woman. I think I was suffering from seasonal affective disorder because of lack of light, because it never got light in December."
