Joshua Ritchie says he’s received 10,000 hate messages from trolls after Charlotte Crosby split

Love Island star Joshua Ritchie has revealed he's received around 10,000 hate messages since he split with ex girlfriend Charlotte Crosby back in November.

The 25 year old, who recently said he "couldn't stay" with his ex as their arguments were so bad, spoke exclusively to OK! Online about how he's been handling life as a single person after being in a two-year relationship.

Asked whether he's been suffering from any trolling, he explained: "I suffered from [trolling] when I broke up from my ex [Charlotte], I got a lot of hate.

"I probably got over five to 10 thousand messages. A lot. Even my family got it, like my mother, my sisters. I went through a lot of trolls."

However, Joshua, whose ex was slammed for acting "bitter" to his appearance on Celebs Go Dating, doesn't take notice of the cruel trolls who send him hateful messages.

He said: "The thing is with me, it doesn’t actually affect me, because I’m just not that really a**ed. With me, social media – is a massive platform, it’s good for business and stuff like that – but apart from that I couldn’t really give a s**t.

"All I do is if I see a negative comment I delete it. I just think they’re wasting their time, I’m just not bothered."

The reality star's family has been handling the online abuse in the same way as he continued: "My mother and sister took it well, they’re the same as me, they’re just not really that bothered.

"My mum snapped at a few people a few times, which is understandable."

While Joshua is on the hunt for love with the help of dating coaches Anna Williamson and Paul Carrick Brunson, it looks like Charlotte has already moved on.

It was recently reported the former Geordie Shore star is dating a new man just four weeks after her split from Ryan Gallagher, who she met on Australian I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

It is believed Charlotte is now seeing hunky videographer Liam Beaumont.


The reality star is thought to have met Liam during a recent holiday to Dubai, but are now stuck on opposite sides of the world due to the coronavirus pandemic.

While Charlotte has returned home to Newcastle, Liam is currently almost 8000 miles away in Bali.

Liam is a 30 year old content creator, who flies around the world making promotional videos for different clubs, bars and hotels.

"They're both now stuck in different parts of the world and finding it hard not knowing when they'll see each other again," the insider continued to tell The Sun Online.
