Coco said Cheyanne’s TikTok followers were quick to praise her in the clip, but described Coco as “ugly” and told her she looked like a “man.”
The television personality said: “Everyone went to Amnesia but after Ocean I was so, so tired and, to be honest, I read some comments about Cheyanne’s video she posted of me and her on TikTok and I’m honestly just like that sick of people trolling what i look like or calling me a man or whatever.

“It’s gotten to the point where it’s just not fair and not right.
“Like, why am I flipping through a video, scrolling through all the comments and everyone is saying how beautiful my boyfriend is, but then put me down in response to that, saying, ‘Oh my God, Cheyanne, you’re beautiful, your figure is amazing , Coco, who is that man in the first part of the clip?” or, “Coco, you look so ugly,” or “How did this girl get to Love Island?”
“It’s not fair and it’s gotten to the point where I don’t want to go out tonight because I feel like all these comments. It’s not fair.’
