Posting a goodbye message online, Josie wrote: "Right I am off my phone and social until The 13th Jan so if I don’t reply I’m not being rude.

"I just keep finding myself on my phone and reading into all the negativity and it’s not healthy for anyone.

"I actually feel like I’m on my phone so much its disturbing."

Josie was quickly showered with praise and love from understanding fans.

One supporter replied: "Enjoy your break ignore all the negative and venomous stuff people spout on here, your great on TV very smiley and funny."
