Chelsee, who plays Goldie McQueen in the Channel Four soap Hollyoaks, shared the sickening message on her Twitter and Instagram, explaining that she wanted to speak out following the recent Black Lives Matter protests taking place across the globe in response to the death of George Floyd in America.
“You know what, I get nasty messages all day mostly about me!” the former Strictly Come Dancing runner-up wrote.
“I’m a big girl, I can handle that, but saying something so disgusting about my beautiful, innocent baby upsets me especially when there’s nothing you can do to protect them from people’s vile words.”
One of her followers commented on her tweet: “Why aren’t these people banned from social media?
“If you’ve got nothing nice to say- don’t say anything at all. Feel sorry for my kids growing up in this digital world.”
Another concerned follower typed: “Wow I have no words. Shocking and sickening beyond belief.”
The Hollyoaks actress split from Coco’s dad Jack Malloy for good not long after giving birth to Coco in July 2017, after an on/off relationship.
The pair first started dating in 2014, but the relationship was plagued by trouble after he was jailed for 12 months in 2016.
The Sun revealed how Jack, 28, admitted dangerous driving, using a vehicle without insurance and driving while disqualified. He’d previously been given a suspended sentence for producing cannabis.
They reconciled and Chelsee fell pregnant with their first child, but the reunion was short lived and Chelsee is now gearing up for her first Mother’s Day as a single mum.
She said: “All I want to do is be the best mum that I can be to Coco.
“Since having her my priorities have completely changed and of course you want to set the best example that you can.

“She was a surprise baby but I was definitely ready for motherhood. When it happened it just felt right. I’d got my partying days out of my system and everything I do now is about her, it’s not about me.
“I’m really excited about Mother’s Day. Coco is nearly eight months old, and I know she doesn’t realise what it all means but I’ve planned a special day out with my mum, sister and niece which will be a lovely way to celebrate.”
