The Saturdays singer got to meet one of her online tormentors in the flesh as part of a BBC Two programme dealing with internet bullying.
The 26 year old singer, who is married to former England footballer Wayne Bridge and has two children with him, says that she was branded “fat” by several social media users while she was pregnant with her first son in 2013.
Opening up about the effect that online trolls have had on her in a conversation with Victoria Derbyshire for BBC Two, Bridge (maiden name Sandford) had the opportunity to confront the troll in person as a separate part of the feature. She told the man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, how she felt about the abuse she received.

Wayne Bridge and Frankie Sandford are parents to little Parker.
Frankie Sandford and footballer fiance Wayne Bridge have confirmed the arrival of their first child, a son named Parker Bridge. Frankie announced the news on Twitter today, telling followers, "Wayne and I are so proud to say our little boy Parker Bridge was born this morning," Frankie tweeted to confirm the news. "7bs 13oz. All doing well and absolutely besotted."
Parker Bridge. Now there's a man. He'll play in midfield for Fulham, obviously. It got us thinking, where does it rank on the all-time list of footballer's names for their children? There's some pretty awful ones - usually the work of Wayne Rooney - and we think young Parker Bridge might be one of the better choices.
Everyone's least favourite footballer Joey Barton named his son Cassius, after his boxing hero Muhammad Ali's original name. Ryan Giggs called his daughter Liberty, while Gareth Bale - who appears to have a severe lack of taste in anything but how to get a ball into a net - called his daughter Alba Violet Bale. AVB.

The Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford announced her engagement to Wayne Bridge via Twitter
Frankie Sandford has become the third member of The Saturdays to get engaged, leaving just Mollie King and Vanessa White without rings on their fingers. Her girl group buddies Una Healy and Rochelle Humes both married last year. Now it’s Frankie’s turn to walk up the aisle and she’ll be doing so with her footballer beau Wayne Bridge, the Bright on & Hove Albion player.
Frankie broke the news on Twitter, as all good celebrities do these days. There’s nothing like sharing your love for your man with a 140 character message and an Instagram snap, after all. Accompanied by a picture of Wayne kissing her cheek and Frankie holding her newly-bejewelled hand up to her lips in mock surprise, Frankie simply said “Guess what?!!!!” Well, it wasn’t hard to guess, of course, so the messages of congratulations came flooding in. Amongst the first to publicly congratulate her were her band mates. Una Healy tweeted “So Happy for @FrankieTheSats and Wayne who have recently got engaged X.” The official Saturdays Twitter account was quick with the love, too, posting “LOTS AND LOTS of love and best wishes to our @FrankieTheSats and Wayne!! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness together! xoxo"
Frankie Sandford has accepted Wayne Bridge's proposal, despite assuring the press that they would not be getting engaged anytime soon.
Frankie Sandford and Wayne Bridge don't need to worry about the press reporting on their on-off relationship anymore, because they're getting married. The Saturdays singer excitedly revealed the news on her Twitter page, posting a picture of the former Manchester City footballer kissing her on the cheek as she flashed a pretty huge diamond engagement ring on her wedding finger.
Sanford, 24, uploaded the image to Instragram with the caption, "Guess what?!!!" - thousands of fans gave their blessing. The couple have been dating on-and-off since December 2010 and just last month had to slam rumors of an impending engagement. Frankie told OK! Magazine at the time, "He's definitely not going to do it. Everyone else is thinking about it more than I am." Well, he has Frankie, so you're going to just have to deal with being married to a multi-millionaire footballer. It's not clear when or where Wayne proposed, though Sanford and her band-mates attended the Grand National meeting at Aintree racecourse on Thursday, where they opened the three-day meeting with a special live performance.
Bridge is currently on loan at Brighton and Hove Albion from Manchester City, though the left-back could be heading to the south coast permanently if his side win promotion to the Premiership this season. Gus Poyet's team currently sit in the final playoff position.
