Chloe Ferry has jumped to the defence of her man (well, good friend) Wayne Lineker, after speculation the pair were engaged led to him being sent ‘vile abuse’ online.
Following the show, the duo shocked fans when they teased they were engaged online and now Chloe has spoken out in defence of Ibiza beach club owner Wayne and called him the one of the ‘most amazing people I have ever met’.
She slammed online trolls for calling Wayne a ‘paedophile’ and urged them to realise how hurtful their cruel jibes can be.
Taking to her Instagram story, Chloe said: ‘Some of the stuff that I have had to read about him is disgusting. I can’t believe the stuff he is getting called.
‘Paedophile is such a strong word to call someone, it is absolutely disgusting that he is getting called that when all his friends and family have to read that about him.’

Supporting Wayne, she told fans: ‘Wayne is one of the most amazing people I have ever met in my life and he does not deserve the abuse and the awful words that are getting said about him.
‘I was on the phone to him the other day and he was getting upset, I know he would never show that on social media, but imagine him having to read those comments… it is vile, just vile.’
Chloe added that she was ‘really upset’ by the online abuse and questioned why those sending it are still allowed t be on social media.
‘A lot of people don’t realise how seeing these comments can really sit with you as a person,’ she stressed.
Her video came after she and Wayne – whose brother is former footballer Gary Lineker – left fans baffled when they seemed to confirm they were engaged on Instagram.
Chloe was seen cuddling up to Wayne with a big rock on her finger, with the O Beach owner captioning the snap: ‘She said YES! Love you @chloegshore1 ??? ? #lol.’
People were seen congratulating the pair and Wayne continued the ruse by commenting on Chloe’s Instagram posts and calling her ‘wifey’.

Others were pretty sure Chloe and Wayne were just joking, given his ‘lol’ hashtag and the fact that just days later Chloe was seen without her engagement ring. Joke’s on us, guys.
Wayne previously dated girlfriend Danielle Sandhu, 28, for four years and was seen looking love for last year, as he dished all on his girlfriend requirements with a tongue-in-cheek advert.
Chloe, meanwhile, is known for her co-star romances with Marty McKenna and Sam Gowland.
