Love Island star Malin Andersson is seeking help from the police after being subjected to acid attack threats online.

The reality star, who shot to fame on the second series of the ITV2 dating show in 2016, shared her scary ordeal on Instagram, as she called out the troll for taunting her on social media.

Highlighting just how scary trolling can be, Malin explained she has been working with police to find out who the troll in question is and told fans: ‘People don’t realise what kind these kind of threats do to people.’

‘Sick in the head,’ she wrote, while sharing a screenshot of the horrible message she had received.

It read: ‘I’ve seen you about 3times in mk and have not decided what I will do to you. you will not get away with all the sh*t you’ve done acid sounds good little bitch (sic).’

Malin added in a second post: ‘I couldn’t stay quiet for this one. Me and the police are going to find out who this is. I have no words.’

A source told The Sun that Malin has left her home, as a result of the threatening message, and skipped a service where she was supposed to be lighting a candle for her daughter Consy, who died earlier this year, because she feared the troll would be in the area.

‘Malin has been really shook up by the threats. She’s had the police to her house and has called in security to look after her,’ the source told the paper.

‘She’s not been back to the house since… it’s devastating and really the last thing she needs.’

Metro.co.uk have reached out to Malin’s rep.

It’s almost a year until what would have been her 1st birthday, and I can’t express how much my heart hurts for that. Nobody deserves to go through losing a child. But what I can say is that I’m so privileged to announce that I am now @sandscharity official ambassador after an exciting meeting today. Suffering = strength – If anything she would be so proud of me right now. I am not a victim, I’m a survivor of many things. Giving back is something I’ve always wanted to do. I could have gone in a different direction and gone down a bad path but the universe knew I was strong enough to handle the pain. I won’t stop raising awareness for things I truly believe in. It’s a privilege to be part of such an amazing charity – let’s break the stigma and keep raising awareness for @babyloss @sandscharity #SandsAmbassador .. Almost a year now baby Consy – mumma loves you ❤️

Malin, who is an advocate for body positivity, recently paid tribute to baby Consy, as what would have been her first birthday approaches, in a sweet Instagram post.

Sharing a series of pictures of her baby girl, before she died just four weeks after being born prematurely, Malin wrote: ‘It’s almost a year until what would have been her 1st birthday, and I can’t express how much my heart hurts for that. Nobody deserves to go through losing a child.’

In another post Malin reached out to her baby girl and called Consy her ‘forever angel’.

‘Oh baby girl this month is proving tough but I’m needing a reminder that you are my FOREVER ANGEL! For anyone else needing help please know @sandscharity are here to help,’ she said.

Malin gave birth to Consy at the end of 2018 – naming her daughter after her mother, Consy, who passed away in 2017.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk about her heartbreaking loss, Malin said she doesn’t want to let it define her and instead wants to become a ‘better person’ because of her experience.

She said: ‘You can either let it consume you, or you could just let it evolve you as a person and use it as a kind of strength.

‘When you suffer stuff or loss. If you let it kind of define who you are, it will eat you up. So it’s best to let it make you a better person.’
