Geordie Shore’s Abbie Holborn reveals she’s going bald due to stress of cruel trolls branding her ‘fish eyes’ – The Sun
GEORDIE Shore's Abbie Holborn has revealed she's going bald over the stress of cruel trolls branding her "fish eyes".
The 22-year-old was left with huge bald patches all over her head after the abuse took its toll.
Abbie told The Sun Online: "Since school, I’ve always had a hard time with the bullies. I’d get called ‘fish eyes’ and jeered about my weight.
"When I first got on to Geordie Shore after auditioning, I honestly thought I’d left those days behind me – but I was wrong.
"After having a boob job when I was 18, I’d put up with the online slurs and insults thinking I was okay with it and could look past the hate – but really, it was churning me up inside."
After watching Little Mix star Jesy Nelson’s documentary she realised she was being controlled by online bullies.
"I started to get thinner, and not just in weight. I noticed my hair was coming out in clumps too," said Abbie.
"Then one night, I was looking in the mirror and gasped. I had huge bald patches all over my head.’
"I knew it wasn’t from hair extensions because I hadn’t been wearing them at that time – it must be a form of the condition Alopecia that affected Gail Porter."
Hair Loss Causes
- Hormonal imbalance – such as excess androgens
- Iron Deficiency
- Thyroid imbalance
- Sudden or dramatic weight loss
- Vitamin B12 deficiency
Abbie tried to cope with her hair loss by spraying her head to match her hair colour, but admits: "I felt so insecure."
The reality TV star has seen a remarkable improvement in recent weeks as she focused on eating healthily and exercising.
She added: "I’m now on the road to recovery but it’s been a tough time learning to get over how awful people can be.
"Now I focus on the compliments and the good people. But I know I’m not the only girl from reality TV that goes through this.
"I thought about having a bum lift but have now decided that it’s time to accept my body, and I’m happy with that."
