The former 'Coronation Street' actress took to her Instagram Stories to fire back at the bully, insisting she could "deadlift or squat" his "entire body weight" after he mocked her.

She said: "It's not often your Auntie Cath gets trolled, I'm very lucky like that. I've got lots of wonderful, positive people in my life.

"You do get the occasional twonk, so to the guy yesterday who said I had 'big fat legs'.

"Babes, I've been training these legs for seven years. This s*** don't wobble, and I guarantee I could deadlift or squat your entire body weight, my love."

The 37-year-old star called for him to "find the light" following his trolling.

She added: "So things just got really awkward, really fast, didn't they? God bless ya, darling.

"Find the light, come on."

Sadly, it's not the first time Catherine has been attacked online.

In August 2018, the ex-cobbles star - who played Eva Price on the ITV soap - was left "speechless" by a "mum-shaming" Twitter user, who slammed her for posing for photoshoots.

Catherine - who has son Alfie, five, with husband Tom Pitfield - hit back after a social media troll claimed she was "seeking self-gratification" while her child was "at home without their mother".

They wrote: "Why do you feel the need to post pics and selfies of yourself online? You are a Mother and a responsible adult. How do you have time to have photo shoots etc? Don't you feel guilty seeking self gratification while your child is at home without their Mother? (sic)"

A shocked Catherine replied: "Wow... I mean I'm speechless. Is it 1950?? Mum shaming??? Really??? I have no need to justify or explain my actions to you or anyone. So much for parents empowering and supporting each other. May your heart find joy and gratitude . Blessings x (sic)"
