Alex recently spoke out about how trolling had affected her mental health.
She told the Mail online: “When I retired, getting trolled, I found that I was turning to drink to try and hide everything, hide what I was feeling.
“I didn’t tell anyone, I didn’t tell my mum because I didn’t want her to worry or put that stress on her.
“I was just that person (who thought) ‘I can look after myself, I can deal with stuff’ but obviously sometimes that’s the wrong way.”
The Lioness star went on to seek therapy after revealing the abuse had led her to a “dark place”.
